    unfortunately, a couple of my coaches have participated and werent too successful. It's really set up to favor people who have experience in point-fighting. kinda lame.

    Hes never done point fighting but he hits/kicks really fucking hard.

    Hes got a really good kickboxing record.

    I'm excited for him :noes:

    He had a small falling out with my head trainer so he doesn't teach at Memphis BJJ anymore though :hs:

    my coach just got back from japan monday night. he won his fight and got picked up to fight in K1.... ....he got beat pretty bad in WCL. The fact that they make the fighters throw non stop attacks at eachother more or less nullifies any talent you bring to the fight.

    I hope he does well

    There is no strategy, you can't pick your opponent apart, you are forced by the rule set to just flurry constantly.

    Last time I was up at Memphis I got tackled by a large black man, only to discover it was Will. :) His brother has scary MT too.

    I miss him, I hate he doesn't teach at memphis bjj anymore.

    We went together to Atlanta for some fights we were in. We got stuck in 5pm Atlanta traffic. Dead stand still. The Peaty Pablo helicopter song came on. He rolled down my window, got half out of the car and sat on my door and started singing it while spinning his shirt around.

    It was epic.

    Yeah, but I see him up there quite a bit, actually. He's allowed up there, I just don't think the ever plan to pay him again.

    They want a fast paced fight but you are not forced to flurry. You can't really pick your opponent apart cause you only have 2 rounds but you don't have to to nuts tho they do like when you do.
