I figure you're talking about the "The child of a tiger is a tiger." quote. Right?

Either that or the one in Don's sig.

BTW--Do they even have Tiger's in Haiti?

It doesn't matter if you agree or disagree... As long as I don't bore you and I spark a moment of thought, my goal is achieved.

I would suggest working on your takedown defense and sprawls and continue the boxing with your coach. I don't think you'll get a whole lot out of BJJ in just a few months, especially if you're going to be learning standup also. Just keep him from being able to take you down so you can punish him standing up.

That was my goal (keep him stanging up), I figured that was my best chance. You know the more you think you know about fighting the worse off you are, The more I train with my coach, the more I realize how bad off I really was!! Im just trying to be a sponge right know. I was referring to the quote on The Dons post, I am trying to focus on the things I feel weakest in right know.

Yeah, exactly. If you're trying to take in information from five sources you'll only be gaining a bit from each over time. But if you're concentrating only on one or two things you'll take in a lot more information from just those two things over the same amount of time. I think it's best to just concentrate on a few things until they become more natural, then you can start learning the other stuff.

I'm pretty sure that there's a Gracie Jiu-Jitsu school in Torrance. I don't know if that helps, but it's good for getting started.
