Very nice fight man! You looked great. After this one...I think I might be a Kin fan!

Also: 4-0 congrats man. I must search the Tube of Yous for more videos.

Thanks man!

I've got my first MMA fight on youtube, which I can post here.



I never got a vid of my second fight and I'm working on ripping the vid of my third fight from this DVD that I got. I hope I can put it on because its super high quality with multiple camera angles and slow-mo replays.

I've got a 'trailer' of the DVD right here. I appear at 1:21 and it shows me warming up + the only important part of my fight.



BTW, I love your ever-changing squirrel-themed avatars. My girlfriend literally LOL'd when she looked over my shoulder and saw your Chuck Liddell one.

Highly opinionated but out of touch with the current MMA scene.

Great fight Kin! (the first one posted) I haven't watched the others yet but I definitely want to jump on the bandwagon and be a fan. From high kicks to take downs to staying in the pocket and firing back you've got it all. Great fight!

I've always been a genki sudo fan too. Maybe one day you'll be moonwalking on your opponents.

Hahah thanks, but I don't think 2,000 views total counts as stardom. Hopefully DW will take notice of me in the future, but that's a ways away. I'm still just an amateur and I've obviously got to pay my dues before any such thing could happen.

As for my fighting style, I train Sanda, Boxing, and Submission Grappling.

Thanks man. I'm not yet worthy of a bandwagon or anything of the sort, but perhaps in the future. Also, I'm very very very sad to report that I'm terrible at dancing, so you won't see anything Genki Sudo-esque from me.

I actually train with a guy who trains in the same arts. I think they are a really good mix when put in proper coordination. You, I think, are an obvious example of that. And damn your unselfishness. I shall build a bandwagon! And fill it with bands!

First off, congrats on the win, keep up them wins! Great fight!
Second, if it's not a secret - how much (if?) do you get paid for fights like this?
And thirdly - how long have you been training MMA?

As biased as I am, I too think that's a solid mix. Sanda has pretty decent striking, but the hands generally suck. Boxing is the solution to that. What's great about Sanda, is that you get really good at catching kicks and using takedowns as counters to strikes. While a Sanda fighter's double leg is nothing to write home about compared to, say, a wrestlers, people aren't ready for those kick-catch takedowns. (I wish that I was better at those, so I could've used it in my last fight.) And of course the submission grappling gives you something to do after that takedown.

Btw, what persuasion of bands do you intend to fill my wagon with? Musical, rubber, or some other kind?

If you want to be good at subs and sweeps, do BJJ. To get off your back, put in some time with wrestlers. There's usually people who crosstrain in wrestling at BJJ schools. What's freestyle striking? Muay Thai practices punches, kicks, elbows, and knees.

Either way, just get into a gym. It doesn't matter what you train, so much as whether or not you train. As long as they do hard sparring and live drilling, you'll be fine.

Thanks! Local pros around here can get paid between $400 to several thousand dollars. I'm still an amateur, though, so I don't get paid anything for fighting. What I do, however, is sell lots of tickets since I make 15% of each ticket I sell. I made 320 from ticket sales in this fight, and I've heard of fighters making up to 1000 from selling tickets. Also, you can try to get small-time sponsors who'll throw you around 100 bucks or so to fight with their clothing. The shorts I was wearing were made by a company that sponsors me.

www.warhawkfightwear.com

They've got some awesome stuff. I like how it's well-designed and not cluttered/over the top.

I'm also sponsored by www.butchershopfightgear.com, though they were banned from that event, so I didn't really get anything from them for fighting.

At first I thought it was silly how some guys hustled so hard for sponsors as just an amateur, but I'm starting to appreciate it since grappling tournaments, gear, and traveling isn't exactly cheap. Yet, it's really tough to improve without making use of those things.

Oh, and I've been training MMA for 3 years. I've been doing various martial arts since I was 9 (so that's like 11 years now), but I was such a weekend warrior that it hasn't really paid off that much. I only trained once or twice a week, and in a lot of styles that weren't relevant to MMA (ie: ninjutsu, kenjutsu, german swordsmanship, kali, aikido, TKD). Boxing was probably the most productive training I did prior to finding my MMA gym, but again, only once a week.

Looking back, I wish I did more boxing and/or Judo when I was younger, or that I wrestled in HS or something.

I change them whenever the mood strikes me. Usually when someone says something about 1, I change it to a new one. It also helps they take like thirty seconds to make, since its just cut and paste.

I agree, completely. My sparring partner trains the single leg a la roundhouse/straight kick catch so much I asked him if he actually knew there were other kinds of takedowns. He preceeded to laugh and double leg me.

Also: a large bundle of rubber bands would suffice for now!
