He lost to Evan Tanner and Dan Severn but is an awesome coach. I can't wait to fight in a tournament. That would be sweet kicking another persons a-- since you can fight the same way as in school. But so far no one on one fight tournaments. Just sparring, etc tournaments where you show off your moves. Thats only for the higher belts.

I am trying to find boxing but theres none here since I live in a community where people think its strong to use weapons instead of fists.
if yopur looking for boxing check with the police Athletic leagues, or the Y, some of them still offer boxing programs...

Lol, I found a place in my community where to do boxing and I mentioned the instructors name and then my dad was like "No, your not joining that. No way! You'll get your ass kicked those guys are rowdy". Sometimes my old man is cool but other times a complete loser and let down. I can't wait till the kickboxing tournament I'm going to have. I'm almost in the same belt Dana White is in-blue belt . I'm pretty strong and smart but none of my fights have been mixed martial arts, only school fights .

- BJJ
- Muay Thai Kickboxing
- Greco-Roman Wrestling
- Judo

I have also trained in:

- Boxing
- Yoga (may sound funny but it helps with your flexibility a tonne)
- TKD (at a younger age)
- and JJJ (before i found out about my favourite Martial Art BJJ)

Well to me, when i took JJJ, we learned mainly the Judo style takedowns with many submissions, as opposed to when i switched to Bjj i learned a wide variety of new Takedowns that i hadn't learned in JJJ, plus their were many, many more submissions and variations in Bjj then their were un JJJ. This is no disrespect to JJJ in any way, Maybe it was my instructer, maybe i just wasn't at a high enough level yet but from my experiences (not the same as other peoples) Bjj taught me more.

Bjj does come from Bjj it's just that the gracies have developed Bjj into a more complete ground technique.
