    Helloooooo!

    Hey everybody, just wanted to introduce myself. I'm a fulltime fireman in West Michigan that's been training in a hybrid kickboxing style since 1994. I just recently started to gravitate to an interest in grappling since my school is moving more towards a MMA cariculum (a larger focus on submission and the transition between ranges of unarmed combat, however we're still largely a striking school). I've just recently lost 30 lbs with a focus on a decent diet and I can't put into words how much better I'm feeling.

    I'm sort of at a crossroads right now as far as where I want to go with my studies of the fighting arts. Right now I'm making my way around and visiting some local schools in my area to see what other options might be ot there for me. As I said, I'm starting to research where I might want to go with my grappling interest and so far I've found at least one school that seems damn good for BJJ. Anyways, just thought I'd say hi, see ya'll around.

    Well, the name is more of a reference to my being a large fireman. Sexually, I'm straight as an arrow :biggrin:

    Nat that there's anything wrong with that.

    It's usually how I reference the style of fighting we do. Elements of thai boxing, western style boxing, and transitions between the ranges ( clinches to grappling). I've really enjoyed studying there over the years as it's very non traditional. Heavy on the sparring and no katas.
