    Hmmmm.... I'm not really that new, but I signed up a while ago n' never really posted that much.

    I'm a blue belt under Javier "Showtime" Vazquez. I trained no-gi over at the old Millennia in Pomona... then went over with Javi to La Habra when he opened Showtime Jiu-Jitsu and trained with the gi. Now I'm back over at the new Millennia MMA in Rancho Cucamonga, CA that is about ready to open up soon. Javi's is back with his partners in crime and fellow BJJ Black Belts Romie Aram and Betiss Mansouri.

    Steve

    So how is Romie doing. He used to come own to Todd Medinas and roll with us. He is a good person.

    Romie is doing ok. He's pretty stressed right now, and working his ass off with all the stuff going on at the new Academy. Plus the place is blowing up, so fighters are getting ready for fights on an almost weekly basis.

    Backpacking in either Kerry (around the lakes of kilarney) or in Galway... Or you could just get drunk with JOB!

    True, but that is why its better to stay in the subforums. You generally get alot more good info, good peeps to talk to, and don't have to deal with the general bs like in alot of big forums.

    Yeah... MMA.tv and jiujitsugear.com/forum/ are the only two forums that I really go into... other than OTM's now.

    Although I do need to make a forum for the MILLENNIA MMA website that I'm making.

    People are right when they say Sherdog has way too many childish posters on there. The wasteland is horrible and the stand up and grppling forums can be ok but for every post there will always be about 20 idiots who have nothing usefull to say. OTM rules and we have some of the best grapplers talking here and giving good information. :D

    Hello all new and old peeps...Just wanted to say Hi and wish all of you great and glorious '08 as I feel it is going to be AWESOME!!!

    For those who know me and those who don't...lol been here checking out this site and only posted a little bit. I was an ADMIN on Tito Ortiz's site since its inception and just got tired of the BS.....

    So...I figured in my time of re-had and not training due to a Herniated L-5 in my back, I'll post and chat with peeps...

    I know Gazzy real well and missed the good 'ol days at training with you at Joe M's in New Port....seen Gumby's name like since the dawn of reptiles...been in BJJ forever and still not a black belt, but in my own mind I am and love teaching and training with others.

    I am a new Head Wrestling Coach at a local H.S. in South Orange County and in the process of starting the FIRST EVER H.S. Submission Grappling Team!! Yea, I know I'm nuts, but I love coaching and teaching others this beautiful art...

    Well I've rambled on LOOOON enough...C-Ya all soo...

    The dojo I attend has MMA training on saturdays & sundays. Also, usually after our Jiu-Jitsu & judo classes on tuesdays & thursdays we usually roll around for a while. I have attended some of the MMA classes also- good time! Unfortunately I got caught in an armbar tuesday & something cracked/popped right below my elbow so I have to take a little time off the mat to recoup. I don't think a bone is broken and there is no bruising I just can't tension up my forearm or straighten out my arm & lock the elbow.

    The class sizes fluctuate; but I will say there's 8 of us that do Judo/ Jiu-Jitsu, and another 8-10 MMA guys. My daughters attend TKD classes there, and those have 20-30 students.
