this is when you need JOB... he's a genius with this stuff.........
Name is David. I'm a 2 stripe blue belt under Rob Kahn and Travis Neagle. My bjj home is Gracie South and I am also a black belt in judo. Currently in MS, but have grown up some of everywhere across the country.
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.
So how is Romie doing. He used to come own to Todd Medinas and roll with us. He is a good person.
I am E. I train in Jiu Jitsu for no good reason. Eternal white belt.
I hate Christmas. And Sherdog.
HAH!:D full of luvs n snugs arentcha!? minus the sherdog part.. otm is better..
minus the sherdog part.. otm is better..
god JOB JOB!!
you are an internet genius! i know the powers u have...
so what would be the ideal place to back pack if i wanted to go to Ireland? I'm going alone for two weeks in 2008.
so what's about the sherdog forum that's so awful? I've never really taken the time to check it out..
Backpacking in either Kerry (around the lakes of kilarney) or in Galway... Or you could just get drunk with JOB!
ummm. how bout both :)
see. here in the states we'd say.. "sounds great"
but "sounds grand" sounds so much grander! :D
I love irishmen.... heehee..
oh and for the record.. I never really liked white guys..
there's only been two in my life.. one out of which I still look at..... :) where's the flirty smiley in this mofo?
by the way, I don't like Brazilian's either.. where's the puking smiley in this mofo?
I dunno tho, white guys have been the sincerest to date.. as long as they don't have a pencil neck I'll look ....
They don't come any whiter than me. Frosty the Snowman looks like Ricardo Arona compared to JOB.
sherdog- for every one well thought out reasonable respone you get in any thread you really and truly have ot deal with 20-30 explitive filled juveniel verbal vomits!
The Underground over on MMA.tv is bad enough, but still the best place.
Well... with the limited amount of time that I spent there it was filled with a lot of ver childish people
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.
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
hallelujah to THAT!!
welcoming newest member, waibeaccume! welcome!! :)
welcome, kentbrooktgb!! :D
welcome wjj and johnnyringo!!
where you guys from?
I live in North Carolina. I found the forums through Gazzy on Myspace. I had been training in kickboxing for the last two years, but I have just recently switched schools and I'm focusing mainly on BJJ now.
Whats up Gazzy? Yes I am a brown black belt under the great John Hackleman. Its been fun,and im looking forward to my ass kicking to get my black!
Whats happening everyone? Giving a shout out from Atlanta, ga
BLACH!!! im sorry, i really dislike it there.. my father, brother, all my uncles and aunts live there.. my whole fam.. I tried to move out there so many TIMES..hated it and couldn't do it... guess I will be apart from them for the rest of my life.. *sighs*
anywys, welcom to the OTM forum madmike!!!
I understand Gazzy, Im not crazy about it here myself ,maybe I will move one day who knows. Do you ever train when your down here visiting?
maybe I will move one day who knows.
so you hear that mr. madmike337? that is the sound of inevitibility. that is the sound of the beach in la jolla (la hoy-uh)!! that is the sound of the santa ana wind!! that is the sound of your stuff being loaded into a truck!! that is the sound of your new team training!!!!!!!
you KNOW you wanna......
My roots are pretty deep here right now, but the beach does sound very nice. A friend of mine just opened a new gym in Santa Ana and Im ready to head West to visit!
Im ready to head West to visit!
this is code for "moving to socal soon!!"
good to have a sense of roots though. sort of adds to the sense of self, neh?
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...
you think THAT is rambling looooooong enough? clearly you have not seen some of the lsd posts!! hahahahahahaha.
good luck with the high school grappling effort. that would be HUGE if it took off!
welcome to ARBIZO.. are u spam? :)
welcome to ARBIZO.. are u spam?
gazzy? if arbizo IS spam, will you still be friends?
heeeheee.. YAH!! :D
I'm a FNG that will say HI.
I'm Jeremy, 33 yrs old and am a white belt Jiu-Jitsu & Judo student. I train at Iron Horse Martial Arts in Pendleton Indiana.
I got sick of drinking beer in October and decided that I needed to get in shape, so here I am!
I found this place searching for knowledge on the 'net- cool place
hey Jeremy! wow, Indiana huh? is it pretty out there? I don't think I've ever seen indiana..
anyways judo is awesome.. we are starting a judo program at our mma gym also.. it's so important to have good judo and/or wrestling skills these days! people forget!
where is there to train grappling out there?
we are starting a judo program at our mma gym also.
gazzy? when? what schedule?
I'm Slatter, I train in Santa Cruz CA, Purple belt under Claudio Franca
hey! claudio is a good friend! tell him I said hi!
welcome to the forum! slater? or slatter? :)
Gazzy...do a friends lookup for "SUBMITM"...then you'll know who I am and what I look like. I believe I am already on your friends list...if not ADD ME...
Hell yea, If H.S. had a bjj/grappling program I think a lot of kids would have a great time and have something to do besides getting drunk, stoned or in fights and things!!
It will be interesting to see what I can do once I get on this campus full time!!
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.
sounds like you have a good place to train. just curious, how many of you are there? big school? small school? hope the arm gets better soon. take care.
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.
sounds good. ah, your offspring shall whuppdatass in no time!! good for her. we shall await her mma debut!! hahahahahaha!!!
im new here!!!!! lol hello all.
