    my gf's brother is in the navy stationed there and they want us to come visit soon. so you know what that means... I'm entertaining the notion that it may be possible to go train at BJ Penn's gym for a few days.. assuming that they let people come in and train for a few days.

    I'm excited just at the prospect of this happening. what you guys think?

    Im assuming since you said Navy that you would be headed to Oahu. BJ's place is on the big island. Thats not to say that you couldnt fly there on one of the inter-island airline chains, but if I were you I would try and line up a private with Chris Leben at the Icon gym in Honolulu. A friend of mine that is stationed there said the gym is one of the nicest hes ever seen.

    No TONY, you can't take down and submit Chris Leban.

    I would however give you a decent shot and Razor Rob :dunno:

    I've always thought about that. Fighting on big pay per views gives fighters a certain mystique. Makes you wonder how good they actually are. I bet someone like crowbar could submit leben in a grappling match.

    And I bet Chris Lebel could KO crowbar in a boxing match.

    Yeah for sure. That's not what I was talking about though. I've held my own boxing with this guy that's headlined bodog fights, but MMA I'd be knocked out first round. I was just kind of rambling...

    basically I just think its cool how a lot of times being able to put together all the elements of the game is much more important than being good at everything separately. or something...

    I can smile when its raining.
    If you can, spend a lot of time in Hilo/Kilauea, its a beautiful place. Plus when you think of Hawaii, with beaches and volcanoes, the Big Island is where you want to be. Spend some time there if you can, flights are like... cheap as dirt to get there from oahu, so its not hard.
