    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    Congratulations Coffeefan and Sirc:

    Today we had a huge test today and I awarded Coffeefan his SAMBO Blackbelt. He's been training for 8 years now. Pictures to come. In the process he injured his rib but forced himself to finish out the test by fighting 3 guys all over 190lbs at the same time and fighting 4 combat sambo fights with the lightest guy weighing in at 230lbs and the heaviest being 300lbs.

    Unfortunately I called the test when I could see he was taking too many shots to the ribs during his combat sambo fights.

    Sirc came down to help Coffefan during his test and I decided to pressure test him. I'm awarding him his first official rank in SAMBO. His test consisted of some basic throws and ground techniques as well as conditioning and 15 minute iron man round that forced him to fight a fresh person every minute and thirty seconds.

    Any clips of Sirc in his Ironman? I'm interesting in seeing how he performed.

    I don't think my wife got any of that (was running out of memory on the camera), but it's possible someone else got it. Sirc also got his ribs jacked up during his ironman

    You guys are big on rib smashing out there it seems like. Congrats on your BB by the way, that **** is badass. Those running tackles you ended up taking a few of looked brutal. Hope you recover quick from the rib damage!

    Congrats CoffeeFan. Took a beating and still fought through it. It is an honor to have you as one of my instructors. Hope that rib heals fast.
