    Is it true that he's Kimbo Slice's cousin?

    There's a couple things you left out of your template:

    1. The guy writing the article is always passing the secret along 2nd-hand. "I have to tell you about this guy I met who knows a super-secret deadly technique that he has never told anyone else but for some reason has allowed me to sell it in the back of comic books!"

    2. The deadly secret MUST NEVER fall into the wrong hands. The honor system should suffice. "You have to promise that you will not apply for this if you are the type of person who would misuse this power!"

    And hes not scary cause he does judo. Hes scary cause hes massive.

    Also - didnt teh gr4ppl3 come from judo?


    He's a BB in BJJ as well; and his intensity level is what's scary. I have grappled with him before and I could not tell how big he was in a gi but his intensity not his brute strength is what inpressed me.

    Then why the hell is Kimbo getting grappling at Bas Rutten's gym??? Seems he'd be better served by keepin' it in the family.

    I'd train with Bas, given the choice in a place to prep for an MMA fight.

    "Magnetic Marketing"

    Yes, the Fureyish advertisements are based upon the “Magnetic Marketing” templates from Dan Kennedy (google him). His ideas are based on the idea of “turn yourself from an annoying pest into a welcome guest.” I think he failed.

    Furey, and many of those who follow the Magnetic Marketing templates, aren’t just selling their knowledge/goods: Their commodity is actually prestige. Sure, you can get in shape doing calisthenics. That isn’t to say they’ll do better than a conventional fitness program-- and even less likely give you psychic abilities, superior health, vivid dreams, etc. like Furey claims.

    The prestige comes from knowing the secret they’re selling. It makes people feel special to know better than everyone else and even more special when they’re in an elite group who confirm their mutual superiority. When you can combine feeling superior with belonging to a group, people will pay dearly for what you’re selling.

    No, I would too, but if Rhadi's his cousin, the grappling doesn't get better than that, especially considering their size and build being some comparable. I think Kimbo's style for the time being will be more ground&pound, & seeing the throws that someone who can bodily fling a guy through the air is able to perform... I don't know, I'm just saying...
