    Not necessarily self-trained, as they may train with multiple groups, or take some private instruction, or do some other types of training, but don't consider themselves a regular members of any of these clubs/organizations.

    None that I can think of. Some, run their own teams, but most good fighters I can think of are part of a team.

    The closest thing to a high-profile independent fighter right now is Crocop. He has his own training setup at his house, and a couple different instructors that he brings in to work with him, as well as a rotating set of sparring partners, but nothing that really approaches having a "team".

    But he's got a cage in his fucking house, so that's gotta sort of put him in a league of his own.

    My skr33tz setup is better. I included the broken glass, ninja shuriken and caltrops, concrete and masonic lodge symbols into mine. Boy is grappling hard on a 32nd degree square and compass *wink wink, nudge nudge*
