Weight: 165-175 depending on whether or not I have the time to eat well
Preference: I own a gi, and use it when my regular clothes are all so dirty they're growing new forms life.

Favorite takedowns: Fireman's Carry, Single Leg
Favorite sweeps: I would try to translate into BJJ talk, but I refuse to speak fag.
Your contributions to the BJJihad: Started a website aimed at exposing BS in MA (at that point, IMO meant anything not BJJ by one name or another)
Did a one-man dojo invasion of the local Judo club, tapped some BBs, got my neck hyperextended, thought better of dojo invasions.
Gimmicks you've invented: None...whenever I figured out something "new" I found somebody else who thought of it first, fucking retroactive intellectual piracy!

Limit break: whatever I can get
What you tapped to most often recently: arm bars from under mount

Style: Kung fu, Jiu-jitsu
Rank: I train at an MMA gym. No belts, but I guess white belt.
Time training: Almost 2 months.
Weight: About 145 lbs. last I checked.
Tournaments you've done: None yet.
Last sub you pulled off on anyone vaguely competent before writing this: Noob. I did pull off a triangle on a fellow newbie, at some point, though.
Limit break: Noob. Gassing, probably.
What you tapped to most often recently: I think RNC.
Favorite takedowns: Dunno what it's called, but you essentially drag the guy down from clinch and land in side mount. It's more of a wrestling-esque takedown than jujitsu (IMO). Hip throws are cool, though.
Favorite sweeps: Noob. Stuff from butterfly guard, I guess.
Your contributions to the BJJihad: Um... taking BJJ?
Gimmicks you've invented: Noob. Getting tapped.
I love it.
