A couple of weeks ago I wrote a review that I put here on Bullshido for CFC 14, Australia's Cage Fighting Championship, as seen here:
Australia's MMA Event CFC 14- 5th of June, 2010- Review - No BS MMA and Martial Arts
I was contacted by the CFC and asked if they could print it, with edits, on their official website:
I was also asked if they could print it in Blitz Magazine's, Australia's leading Martial Arts publication, next edition. I am a very happy writer at the moment.
Now, let me retreat into my laboratory to bring forth more written wonders for your reading pleasure (and the obligatory criticism).

Hey, nice work Battlefields.
See if you can get a mention of Bullshido in the article!

Good point, plissken, I'm on it.
EDIT: Sent an email saying it would be greatly appreciated if they could put it with my site name in the magazine.

Nice going. Good article, well written. Are you getting paid for it getting in the mag? I haven't read Blitz in ages.

For a moment I thought you were talking about your spiel on Gi's

The guy who quit after three weeks because they "preferred karate" even though in the first week they proclaimed their respect for judo's "physicality", you knowing full well they wanted a martial art that didn't require hard work. The guy who, when he rolls with you, you are reminded of that week in early childhood where the neighbourhood bullies befriended you, went "exploring" and said they'd follow you down into the sewer, but once you reached the bottom of the ladder you looked up as they closed the manhole, laughing as they placed the full bin that wasn't to be emptied for two more days over it, entombing you in the festering cesspool of faeces, all your cries unheeded for what seemed like an eternity, the muesli bar in your top pocket rendered inedible by the stench that permeated your very soul, the bleeding from the tops of your fingers as you scratched at the rough, pitted from rust undersurface of the manhole cover, the blackness, oh the blackness... wait, what were we going on about?
Oh yeah, TKD cashing in on MMA. Stupid.
That read like a fucking dream.
