    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    Got a direct link to the Pride rules?

    The subject say it all.

    I've got a bug in my bonnet to get in the ring by around this time next year. Originally I was thinking to jsut try out some smoker matches around LA next I visit home but someone on another board dropped me a note and mentioned he might be able to set something up for me in Japan which is actually much closer to me than home.

    So he asks me if I like Pride or K1 rules?

    I'd probably go K1 as I am only a mediocre grappler but in the long run I think I'd still have too many doubts in my mind if I didn't fight something closer to NHB. I also don't like how K1 rules appear to not allow knees, elbows or forearms. That makes it pretty hard to prove anything about Baji. The ruleset seems to make it pretty kick-boxingish. :( I'm not saying I'm that hard core and the rules are sissy but I'm not so much interested in proving I'm a tough guy as I am in just plain getting in on BAJI! style in a full contact competitive enviroment. I want to really test my **** out.

    If I can hook up with some local wrestlers or a Judo club though, then Pride rules could be more of a possibility. My teacher says do the standup first and if it goes well I could try out somehting more freestyle.

    Trying to wrap up here:

    Direct link to the Pride rules?

    How long would I need to be in Japan and what woudl it cost?

    How short of a gig teaching English is possible to maybe pay for my trip?

    I speak no Japanese, only English and Chinese. What kind of handicap is that?

    Are there little gyms around I could train at for a bit to get used to the enviroment, rules etc.? Cost? Welcoming of us barbarians?

    Thanks deepbluehalo. I tried going to the Pride site but I kepts getting stuff in Japanese.

    liuzg150181 .

    Not join....fight. And probably not NHB. More likely K1 rules. Not K1, just under those rules. But I'm looking into K1 mma rules and now that I have teh faq, Pride rules are a possibility. I'd probably be most competitive in a K1 format though. I am just more of a fan of Pride.

    I'm actually curious about what smaller arenas there are in LA too and how people get involved.

    In LA, as for the whole state of California, MMA competition is illegal. :-/

    Just say you're holding a "high fives and hugs" competition, and all the competitors are really bad at being gentle.
