The very sad thing about this is that it's in a way true. When doing my research on brazilian jiu-jitsu and after reading all the "Gracie" propraganda I was about ready to take a trip down to Torrence and the Gracie Academy. I thought, "Why learn Brazilian, when you can lean Gracie..." Now I just want to lean Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu from Dean Lister, Judo from Karo Parysian and hook up with Kyra Gracie for a date...but then again, don't we all!!!

Flesh the character out a bit more, the D n' D type thing sounds too close to to our ninja friend..
What about starting him out as more of the XMA type, athletic and goodlooking if just a slight bit geeky, but sheltered and misguided, who ends up seeing the light of the BJJ goodness to become the ultimate nutriding dork?

Awesome...the whole internet girlfriend, magic the gathering type deal just seemed a little bit too reminiscent of ninja-boy. Keep it up, though, it looks promising.

Thr price of the seminars go just outside the realm of realism and really spoils it for me.

I finally found a Gracie Jiu-Jitsu school but it is two hour drive from home. Hopefully SwEeTnEsS can hold up for the trips. Damn IROC is a fucking pain in the ass but it’s a mint chick magnet, at least that’s what Mack’s bro told me when he sold it to me. He said I may have to get the two tone racing stripe redone and see if I can find a passenger side T-top at the junk yard. He scrapped the racing stripe off of the driver side while on a high speed chase with the North Dakota State Police after he robbed a liqueur store and had to toss the T-top from the passenger side to get away with the 4 kegs of Old Milwaukee. Fucking SwEeTnEsS was on “COP’s” man!!!!!! I got it for a fucking steal though, apparently Mack’s bro has to pay some “initiation fee” to some one in the pen so he had to sell it, it was cool talking through the bulletproof glass at the state penn. That car’s bad ass, although my chick count is still zero.
Soooo, I drove 2 hours to Cankleville to check out Lenny Kimple’s Gracie Jiu-Jitsu Academy. The dojo is friggen sweet, wall to wall mats and a 4’x4’ gold framed picture of Helio “Holy Crusader” Gracie. Helio’s picture is surrounded by nine other pictures, like the friggen solar system and Helio’s the sun, damn straight!!!! The other pics are Mr. Kimple’s instructor, a guy by the name of John Finkle, a guy named Bill Hord, who gave Finkle his brown belt, a guy named Ricardo Jimenez, III, who gave Hord his black belt, Mike Fairchild, who gave Jiminez his black belt, Kerry Dugan, who gave Fairchild his black belt, Carlos Chavez, who gave Dugan his black belt, Donny Domingez, who gave Chavez his black belt, Joe “Bag-o-Donuts” Smith, who gave Domingez his black belt, and Rickson Gracie, who gave “Bag-o-Donuts” a black belt. Mr. Kimple is a GJJ purple belt. The next closest school is Mr. Finkle’s school almost 6 hours away; there is no way SwEeTnEsS is making that hike. So I will have to be satisfied learning from a friggen purple belt. It’s OK though, given my extensive MA experience I imagine I’ll pass him up pretty quick. Roundhouse ************!!!!!!!
I decided to watch this class rather than “roll”. After about a half hour of bowing in to the various pictures on the wall they started to warm up and then proceeded to work on something called “the guard”. That’s the position that Royce guy was in most of the time I saw him in the UFC on TV. My step-dink and his buds kept yelling at the TV calling jujitsu “queer eye for the fighting guy” but I just kept my mouth shut….oh yes, he will **** himself, SOON!!!!
No one shat themselves or passed out during the class I watched but the wrestling seemed pretty sweet. Everyone there was pretty cool and friendly, they talked openly about the benefits of Gracie Jiu-Jitsu, and about how there are no true counters both physically and spiritually to Gracie Jiu-Jitsu techniques when done properly. This is apparently true regardless of whether fighting on the street or in the local Gracie Jiu-Jitsu tournaments. After class everyone gathered in a circle to discuss the benefits of GJJ and share some grape fruit punch. The fruit punch bit was kind of strange but it was oddly comforting…..and I didn’t **** my self this time.
I’m gonna ask Mr. Kimple about the defecating thing next time……
GJJ Up In Y’all,

Meh. . . . it's kind of hard to decide if this is mocking BJJ or not. You almost slip back into the nut-riding with him getting destroyed by the purple, thinking his ATA stuff is great, etc.
However, your version of BJJ history rivals Milton's Paradise Lost, so keep going and let's see what happens.
