    So yesterday, tuesday January 19th I got to train with good ol' Mark "The Filipino Wrecking Machine" Munoz for 3 hours. This has to be one of the greatest experiences of my life hands down. I have not been able to train much because of work and the cost of memberships these days in socal.

    Anyways my friend who trains and teaches at a few different gyms (mostly jokers wild) invited me to head out to his place in orange and join him in some fight practice and jiu jitsu at Jokers Wild. I was already on board but once he told me I would be training with Mark, the Nogueiras, and possibly other pro fighters I dropped everything and got my ass over there the night before so we could get an early start in the morning.

    Most people know that Mark has some sick wrestling but man is his BJJ is moving up quickly. He is one of the nicest guys you could ever meet and I had 3 straight hours of training with him and maybe 4-5 others. Jesus does he know how to put his weight on you when he has side control or when he is passing, its unbelievable! I will post some pictures later, unfortunately I don't have any with me and Mark rolling but I did take a couple non-practice related pics.











    P.S. He is associated with Black House gym and trains over there a lot as well so I would expect some really good things from him. He was recently promoted to purple belt here is the link if you have a facebook.

    Munoz is a monster at 185. He could be good if he keeps after it.

    is your friend name Robert?

    btw, Mark Munoz has his own gym now. It's called Ultimate Fitness or something like that.

    Jokers moved his gym to LA Boxing in Lake Forest.

    i was just guessing

    Jokers gym is strictly an mma gym. They have a lot of KOTC and current/former UFC guys train there. i wouldn't go there for jiujitsu training.

    His new gym at LA Boxing has Genaro Hernandez for boxing coach :eek3:

    Actually yes this is true, Joker did move to LA boxing I just didn't really want to get into the details unless someone brought it up. Ultimate Fitness was Jokers Wild until some shit happened and now Mark Munoz runs it. Joker is now at L.A. Boxing basically he doesn't have to do shit but actually show up and teach which from what i hear from some of his students he was not doing much of at his old gym.

    Sounds like you may have rezent towards them? You know some of these guys personally?

    As for not training there for jiu jitsu, I would not say that is entirely true as Munoz is a big name and a hell of a good guy so he is bringing in lots of good guys and pros in there to train. King Mo, Nog's, Mayhem Miller (the only guys I know about) and the gym hasn't even been completely finished.
