- Trained Judo as a kid, Karate as a kid, got nowhere. Block kick punch. Block kick punch...what?
At age 33 started TKD, got to purple belt, got tired of it, joined Kendo, BJJ and Judo all at the same time. Tested for my Blue Belt in BJJ in 1998 under Carley Gracie in SF. Failed: "much to easy to lift the leg". Oops. I was trying to set something up!
Got to green in Judo the same year, about three months later broke my back.
7 years of yoga and PT and I joined Modern Combatives in Berkeley and started again at white in Judo and BJJ.
Got my green in Judo in 2007, expect to test for brown soon. Got my blue in BJJ in July 2007 from Lily Pagle, Brown under Matt Thornton of SBGi.
