I might have been drunk cuz we used to drink a lot before the club lol
I quit that now though.
LOL @ thismiss trying to make herself out to be ugly. I remember her posting a picture of her that literally looked like one of them joints you get with the picture frame.
Ben, I used to wrestle, I know how that goes. It's not fun at all unless you're winning. That and if dude took a shower, or are you one of those guys who purposely doesn't shower?
lol no i shower.... thats gross haha, i hate whe you gotta grapple with sweaty stinky people and their smell rubs off on you. and thats not wrestling although i use a wrestling stance and use wrestling take downs, its a brazilian jiu jitsu tourny which i won both gi and no gi hehehe, tapped everyone out in under 2 mins cheaaa
but yea i love wrestling too
You used to wrestle? Or no?
If so, what weight class?
I used to go 145 which was probably the most competitive class. I remember my coach was so cool, but turned into a huge dick head at meets. Some kid from Hobart was a fucking monster at 145 (8th grade). I mean, he was fucking jacked. I remember him getting me in some type of almost headlock and squeezing so tight that my ears popped. I can still remember my coach yelling for me to scissor and who knows what obscenities then all I could do was look at his mouth move.
I lost that one. But I did come back and take city that year so w/e.
Ay, you watch Tapout?
i didnt wrestle in highschool, nah, but i wish i did. i didnt have the respect for it then that i do now.
i do train with a wrestler who took 1st in nationals in college, he is absolutely insane. so a few days a week we train wrestling take downs and some ground work with him before jiu jitsu. the guy is absolutely insane with it.
but nah i dont watch tap out i hate that show, those guys are the most annoying people on the planet. and the one with the afro, what does he even do? just stand there and look gay?
Look at that picture and honestly tell me, that my eyes don't look like donuts. Come on.
They might be pretty donuts. But they're still donuts.
LMAO, the donut thing had me laughing just because it seemed like such a colorful description. Like you're writing a remix to 'Your Body Is A Wonderland' or something.
were those the same tourny? homie doin it big. i got friends in jiu jitsu, winning NAGA is huge. when was that?
Someone in the alley came up with it. And I said oh, you know, you're right. My eyes are like beautiful donuts.
no those werent the same tourny. NAGA was sept and the other was last weekend, october 27th. yeah, naga was HUGE this year, lots of ufc heads were there, a lot watched my fights, i got to meet some cool mma guys. yeah naga's are always well run and they mean a lot... gets you lots of bragging rights hehe
lmfao..that guy who got 2nd place looks depressed ahahaha
he's not even smiling or nothin
and 3rd place looks overly happy
that finals fight was tough because i puked right before i had to go out. it was rough, i was trying to finish without puking. in that pic i was still nauseous as fuck trying to look happy hehehe
Yo Live that bitch in your pics, the one who you said was on bangbus, looks like her eyes are rolling around in the back of her head. She's scary as fuck Lmao
Here's a new one of me. I'm in the best shape I've ever been
i dont have a pic yet more of a question to the wrestlers... how old are yall? im 23 wanted to know if it was to late to get in the sport.
lol@the bangbus chick they have alot of stupid shit on there.. midget porn and everything.. shits disgusting..
^yeah its too late, well too late to go anywhere with just wrestling.
wrestling lives in highschool, college, and the olympics and your not going to get there starting when your 23.
but it depends on your goals, what are you trying to do? just defend youself? or do it as a sport?
u can do submission grappling and stuff like no gi jiu jitsu.
i didnt wrestle in high school but i train wrestling with a nationals-winning wrestler and it helps my jiu jitsu a lot.
the sport of jiu jitsu is very similar to wrestling, the way tournaments are run is pretty similar and the grappling itself has its similarities.
and i am 22
well i wanna do like mma type fighting... i was going to go to train but i didn't wanna move to LA
you dont have to move to la to train, where do you live? i dont think you just want to do wrestling if you want to do mma. i would start with bjj.
and instead of taking a freestyle fighting or a general mma class, i would take classes individually. for example im taking bjj, judo and muay thai (although my main focus is jiu jitsu, judo comes 2nd and muay thai a far third for now)
but you cant focus on all at once, you'll become decently well rounded but you wont really be an expert in any area. to be an mma fighter i believe you must be an expert in one area and well rounded in the others.
bjj should be the first thing you work on, its a great base to have and the most essential fighting style to defend yourself and the most essential for mma fighting. if you dont know it you will get owned, so i would create a base in that first. later on work some striking into the mix and you'll be good to go. it will be hard to go into mma starting at 23 but you can at least get some local fights after a few years
i agree that you should try to learn both stand up and ground game. you dont need to be excellent in both. generally people will gravitate and be better at either stand up or ground but you gotta atleast learn the basics. Mirko Cro Crop is an excellent stand up fighter (or was) however he lost an easy match up to Gabriel Gonzoga due to his inexperience and flat out disregard for ground training.
i think the two most vital styles are
ground: no gi ju-jitsu (this is ju jitsu but without the uniform and there are also punches incorporated which is absolutely crucial to mma)
standing: muay thai
if you only want to fuck around and do the stuff for fun you probaly wont have to move anywhere. but if you are looking to be professional i suggest you find a well respected camp. thankfully i live very close to the best Muay Thai academy in the country and one of the best in the entire world. If you dont know Mark Dellagrotte, you dont know Muay Thai.
ehh im from indiana not really a good market for anything unless your selling corn
