Ashida Kim "koga" man to compete in MMA?
I so want footage of that fight.
Since i haven't competed for many years (since i quit Kyokushinkai), i'm un-acustomed to getting in shape for championships / tournaments of any kind. My question is; what whould you advice (apart from / on top of the ordinary drills during training) to "get in shape" for something like that?
The reason that i'm asking this is that i've decided, along with my wife, that i'll go for the Combat Martial-Arts Worldchampionships this year. Maybe i'm setting high goals, but isn't that what life is for (setting goals)?
I sincerely hope some of you can give me some advice, so that i can get some metal around my neck (since naturally i strive for that), though less can do (though it will not feel as comfortable ;) !!
Sincerely, and in respect,

wtf is an MA-union? Are the karateka trying to keep the scab-fighters from joining the dojo?

It looks like the guy might not be telling the truth.
The "competition" he's talking about is one where you submit a video of yourself and are graded to see if you are a "champion".
Details here: http://icmaua.com/Championship.htm
Also, here is the account of the competition he posted. It seems a little hokey.
"Well guess it's time for some info for you, since i've got a break now. The eliminations are over, AND I'M IN THE FINALS !!! Sofar, i've met some awfull opponents (but then again, that's what i expected ). The first 2 where Kung-Fu people (monkey-style & praying mantis, the last one was the worst!!), then i met a Kempo-fighter. The last 2 fights where bad, first i met a MMA-guy (he wasn't too rough, but MAN was he a royal pain when we hit the mats ) who squished me a bit (and bent a couple of ribs ). The last one was a Systema-guy, and MAN was he tough!!! It took me 12:54 to KO him (after having lost 1 tooth and having another chipped (thanks to a perfectly legit headbutt, that was stronger than my mouthguard could take )."

From the first post on the 16/10/05 where he says he is considering entering a tournament to his "I Won" post on the 24/10/05 a total of eight days had passed. That's some pretty short notice. Great post takeanother:
Are you sure you're not telling us a tall tale?
It seems that the competition you're reffering to is completely unknown by people who live and breath for such compeititions.
Furthermore, it appears that the competition doesn't actually involve fighting. Instead, you submit a video or yourself. Then, they decide if you are a "champion" based on your video.
Here are the details: icmaua.com/Championship.htm
Please let me know if you have any evidence to refute this.
Edited: Was looking at the organisation members list for the ICMAUA, http://www.icmaua.com/
alot of ninjas of unverifiable styles on there and guess who pops up? The so-called pit fighter himself:

Hahaha. Just went to the guy's website and on his forum he has uploaded two of his techniques. A knife defence tech and a mount escape tech.
Check those shitty videos out, oh and to the groundfighters out there, try that mount defense out at training.
And I also found his so-called bio:
My martial Arts 'carrer' started out when i was 11 years old, with Kyokushin-Kai. I enjoyed it a lot, and has adopted a few training-methods from that (such as a few body-conditioning techniques and the fact that we emphasize Kata's highly). After 3 years of Kyokushin-Kai, i ran across Kawachi Yon Tengu Ryu and was 'instantly hooked'. Over the years, i've spent some time in Japan (where i trained under Mishima Ooyama (may he rest in piece). In the mid '90's, he and i started developing the principles for Ryoku Ryu Ninpo Bugei (though it wasn't until January 2005 that it was formally founded). On 23'rd of August (2005), Mishima Ooyama died, leaving no apparent succesor for the Sokeship of Kawachi Yon tengu Ryu. After some debate, the O' Kaigi decided to hand the responsability to me, which left me as (not only) the 2'nd Soke & Co-founder of Ryoku Ryu Ninpo Bugei but also as the 38'th Soke of the Kawachi Yon Tengu Ryu Ninpo.

For the record, I am not out to bash Ashida Kim's message board. There are some posters there who post interesting, unorthodox information.
However, it looks like there is a clear disconnect here between somewhat "easily" verifiable objective facts and what the poster presented. I'm hoping that some of the senior members of that board will investigate and publically frown upon such behavior.
