Hey guys what's up. My intro.

Hello,
I'm new to the forums and just wanted to say a few things about myself. I've been intrigued by Martial arts in general ever since I was a kid. I love watching it in movies and I love wrestling around with my friends. I grew up in a great home but violence among 3 boys was always apparent. It got even worse when our cousins from at of town stopped in for a week of two. And I don't mean we were angry...we were just having fun. The fight was in our blood lol. Holes in the dry wall everywhere...needless to say we got punished a lot.

As of lately though. I have taken a huge interest in MMA. I've been a very physical guys all my life. playing all kinds of sports growing up. And I've done weight lifting for years. I'm not a bit guy by any means but I have a pretty good physical definitions. My friend who actually has fought underground MMA has taught me a decent amount and we hardcore spar as often as we can. He was the first one to choke me out and give me my first black eye in the say session lol.

Here is a video of he and I throwing down. I'm the one with the wife beater on. I know I made a lot of mistake in here such as, not keeping my guard up enough,exc. But I did my best and he goes to easy on me honestly. But it's how you learn. I also try to watch a lot of UFC to watch there techniques.

I hope to be taking jiu jitsu and Muay thai at one of our mma gyms here in town soon.

I push myself hard every day. My work outs are different every day so my body never gets use to anything and I use the old school body for life diet where you eat six small meals a day and then pig out one day on the weekend. I've learned the most important part of physical appearance is eating. I also use GSPRUSHFIT which I enjoy a lot. Well I could ramble on a whole lot more but that's enough for now. Thanks hope to enjoy my time here and learn a lot.

That was pretty entertaining. Tell you what you got...you got determination. Your left thigh must be a bit sore though. Check his kicks first for the first round or so, then parry with your right hand immediately countering with your own kick, or catch the leg kick with your left + right cross counter, or my favorite catch it (your thigh has to be leaning forwards so it comes into contact with his shin throwing him off balance) and sweep his other leg. Another option is to front teep him at the same time. Kicks are my speciality. Cung Le, Showtime, Barboza, CC, and of course Anderson Silva all have a wicked arsenal of kicks and counters.

Your friend is obviously fairly experienced. He's fighting pretty casually and landing at will which is a sign of an experienced fighter. He's not trying to hurt you which is good.

Most newbies go crazy and just swing wildly. It's quite funny actually. Otherwise looks like you're in good shape. You'll pick it up in no time once you get formal training. Remember though it's about discipline. One of the unwritten rules is to never use it outside of the dojo. After you train you feel like you can take on anyone...haha!

Thanks for your advice. I definitely have to practice some of those moves you mentioned. But ya he is pretty chill about the fight. He could have destroyed me if he had the chance. I gave it my all but I know with time, knowledge and experience I can improve. I've watched that video over and over again so as to observe my mistakes.

As far as a street fight. I actually don't ever have the mind set of starting a fight with someone outside of out sparring or an MMA fight. I just not that kind of guy, but thanks for the warning. I would imagine it to be very easy to think that once trained. But I always remember there is always a bigger faster and stronger guy.
