    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    Anybody ever heard of Ruffhouse?

    Thinking of joining here:

    http://www.ruffhousejiujitsu.us

    Anybody heard anything good or bad?
    Any opinions just based on the site?
    I'm a newbie so try not to flame me up too much. :)

    I know not to join the places you guys refer to as McDojo's, this place doesn't seem to hand out belts like candy, and it is on the way home from my work. Those are my reasons, but perhaps I need better reasons.

    Sounds ok. MT + BJJ is a good combo.

    However, I found this on the instructor page under the Kid's BJJ/Kickboxing instructors resume:

    Black Sash in Wing Chun, Hung Gar, Choy Lay Fut
    Black Belt in Pulang Kamatayan/Tadsukan (Filipino Kickboxing Style)
    Black Belt in Kickboxing (American Kickboxing Style)

    That's a lot of black belts in addition to a purple belt in BJJ.

    Three black belts in numerous styles = alarm bells.
    Depending on his age, this is questionable. Not neccessarily because it can't be done on the up and up, but there is a better chance that he got his Black belts from instructors who give them out too easily.

    Ruffhouse... that sounds like a leather/bear gay club or something...

    Meh, sorry for derailing the thread, but I couldn't resist the temptation :P

    The street argument is retarded. BJJ is so much overkill for the street that its ridiculous. Unless you're the idiot that picks a fight with the high school wrestling team, barring knife or gun play, the opponent shouldn't make it past double leg + ground and pound - Osiris

    That is a man.
    And that's when I figured out that tears couldn't make somebody who was dead alive again. There's another thing to learn about tears, they can't make somebody who doesn't love you any more love you again. It's the same with prayers. I wonder how much of their lives people waste crying and praying to God. If you ask me, the devil makes more sense than God does. I can at least see why people would want him around. It's good to have somebody to blame for the bad stuff they do. Maybe God's there because people get scared of all the bad stuff they do. They figure that God and the Devil are always playing this game of tug-of-war game with them. And they never know which side they're gonna wind up on. I guess that tug-of-war idea explains how sometimes, even when people try to do something good, it still turns out bad.

    I think you're right, but this one at least has a smaller prick than that blonde tranny he had for an avatar last week.

    Gasp!!! I always thought people waited for my posts because they were mentally estimulating... but I guess my avatar does that job much better. LOL... btw, wait and see for my next avatar of her (insert evil smile/laughter.)
