I want to prove that a lanky red-headed guy can do what most people will simply write off as crazy. Because anyone can do it - I'm just stepping up to the plate.
    All you're going to prove is how funny the Internet can be. Seriously, you'll get busted up by low to mid range fighters IF anyone even takes you on and you'll prove what by doing this?

    It's like running a mile and saying that you'll do a marathon tomorrow.
    Climbing 10 feet up a kids climbing wall and deciding to climb 100ft of granite.
    Learning to drive a hatchback and then enterif a raleigh stage.

    Positive thinking is all well and good but without grounds in reality it becomes fantasy. Lay off the king Fu films and just TRAIN.

    He hates his ribs. He protects his teeth and cares for them. Not with a mouthpiece, but by ruling out shots to the head, of course.

    But yet you wrote a book about boxing, yes?

    The fact that kids are sparring with head shots disturbs me. It's 2011 - we need to be more educated on this issue. I also think that there should be a type of sport fighting that allows fighters to compete without worrying about long-term effects on their brain and personality. People can say fighters who avoid taking head shots are cowards all they want, but if you're willing to take a roundhouse kick to the ribs, you have my respect.
    Hey why don't you go to Harvard so you can identify the logical fallacy you just created.

See for them, it's a challenge that should be met with what they would consider to be "equal to the task or appropriate responsiveness". If they look at things from a time wise perspective, they might think that time spent would be better served learning in their class as opposed to an outright sparring exhibition. There's many people out there that are great to learn from... it's just going to hard to find them.

    Sure anyone can do anything, but in the end, the only person I believe you need to prove anything to is yourself. Thats all that matters.
    You really should refrain from talking for anyone but yourself.

    Can't see the vids from work, so I don't know if he's trolling or has delussions of grandeur, but I know that he will regret the "no-headshot" rule after the first livershot tko ;-)
