    I'm thinking of competing in Muay Thai this year. Long ways off, but it's what I want to do more than any other comp right now. BJJ or No Gi would be easier, but there still aren't many of those around here either.

    don't have any planned but I have been feeling the itch.... especially since I just the other night tapped a dude with the counter (that I didn't know and missed) to the move I lost to in my last tournament.

    During high school I got a pretty good ACT and a good GPA, so my college pays for everything plus I get a 3K stipend a semester. I do art and I babysit. JJ helps me out to some tournaments, and I work at NAGA tournaments when I'm not competing.

    As for May, I'm spending 3 weeks at Renato Tavares' academy in Vero Beach doing two a days and probably gonna kill myself. But, I really want to incorporate his game into mine. He's hella small, so I'm hoping I can use that where I get frustrated rolling with bigger, stronger people all the time.

    Oh, looks like I'm working on another fight April 26 if we can find a girl between 135-150. I'm not picky.
