MMA Quick Question...

Discussion in 'OT Bar' started by Martin Atchet, Jun 30, 2009.

  1. First off I'd like to say I don't have a sub so I can't search anymore. Sorry if this topic is beaten to death.

    Second I don't follow MMA at all, so this might sound stupid.

    My friend recently asked me if I wanted to go to Lloyd Irvings gym which is like 20 minutes from my house. Again I don't know anything about this stuff so is this place a legit place to go? I would want to do Muay Thai and BJJ.

    Their BJJ is good. They have MT and MMA classes. Probably not as great as their BJJ but who knows, they have it

    You should just do 1 on 1 sessions with Lloyd, they are super cheap and a great value.

    What the fuck?! 1500 an hour? STUPID.
    Randy Couture was charging 500 for an hour of whatever discipline you wanted to focus on.

    Its probably because he doesn't want to be bothered doing privates, but if someone will throw that kind of money at him he will do it.

    Its a good way to push business to his other black belts because their rates are more reasonable.

    doesnt Brandon Vera train with llyod irvine?
    If he does, id say he has REALLY good muay thai.
    Everyone thinks brandon is a muay thai fighter, and he is- but he started out as a greco roman wrestler.

    :mamoru:

    Vera trains striking with Rob Kaman
    He trains Jiu Jitsu and gun disarming with Irvin

    Pretty sure Hall is a student of Irvins. Or at least was for a long time.
