Damn these things do not fit my officejet 6300.
What is interesting here is notice the membership number I was given in Mr. Gracies group.... then again #2 could mean ****.

i don't have anything earth shattering to add, but as long as this thread stands, i don't see how anybody could question your credentials.
Now, just to prove I was dumb enough to stand there and let people kick me in the balls.....
...and choke me with ropes...
...and punch me in the gut, which killed Houdini!
PS these things really don't fit. Note: You guys who watched the UFC at my place, we need to do a storage garage run to find all these things.
You've shown a great deal of class. Thank you.
You really shouldn't allow people to think you're in the wrong when you're right and can back it up. Much as the Underground may not be terribly important, false claims against legitimate instructors are just as bad as false claims made by illegitimate ones. I think it's equally important that the truth be upheld in all situations.
Well, I think they know they are full of crap over there. They think it hurts me, or gets a rise out of me, so they keep it up.
In truth, I really don't give a crap about any of them, and I lose no sleep worrying about what they think of me.
Right now, with the evidence in plain sight and site, they look pretty darn foolish. I expect they will try to squirm away from it, but I really don't go over there at all, and I don't read what is posted there. This latest was brought to my attention, so I felt I should show people how things like this should be handled.
I expect a challenge to a fight any day now..... lol
I have other major bombs to drop of need be. A big one is that the current President of USJA, Jim Webb, came to my school, and trained there for quite some time. I have not brought this interesting commentary to him, but I know what he would say about it, and it would be said as the President of USJA.
It's just all so stupid.....

I meant to ask about that, one of the things they say there is that the USJA sucks.
Why are you USJA and not USA Judo?
Well, that of course is their next "change the subject" assault. First it was Porter, now when proven wrong they say USJA sucks.
I was in USJA because my Uncle was and he was my main Sensei. Like it or not USJA and USJF are Class A groups under USJI and their ranks are as sound as any.
I am not going to rehash the Judo wars about this, other than to say that the claim is simply changing the subject. When I ran my school, my guys crushed any and all, the record is there. In fact, I was accused in Ann Arbor of UNDER ranking my guys. So which is it? Does USJA rank suck or not?
My cousin Ron was president of USJI (USA JUDO) for some time. In fact, when I ran the club, I was a member of all three groups, and ALL THREE GROUPS accepted my rank.
So, its a non issue.
Especially when you know that many people over there (Quincy Rice & Walter Lamb to name two), ARE RANKED THROUGH USJA!
So again, if USJA sucks, doesn't that mean......

Got it. Quincy and Josh said that you were only entering in USJA events to avoid the bigger tourneys with stiffer competition. If that's not the case, then it's a dead issue.
Umm... never claimed to be an Olympic Training center. In fact, my problem with USJI is that they only care about elite players.
My program when I ran it had over 100 members (active) and was one of the top 10 USJA clubs for several years. This was because of my attitude that there was more to Judo than Olympic Judo. 90% of my guys were there for combative, not sport training.
About 12 of them over the years were involved in violent personal assaults. NONE of them was injured and all defeated their attacker(s).
That's the only record I really care about.
But lets be clear, I could say "day is light and night is dark" and Josh and Quincy would take issue with it. It's why I ignore them.
As long as other people don't get sucked in by their vendetta, that's great, but they shouldn't be allowed to spread lies unchecked.
I definitely agree that there's more to Judo than Olympic Judo. Olympic Judo is boring.
