Rob Voss is a sambist, judoka, and BJJ stylist in Minneapolis out of Cellar Kickboxing and BJJ. He is affiliated with Team USA Storm. USA Storm Founder Lance Campbell has appropriately expelled him from the organization. According to Campbell, Voss's membership will be reviewed by the USA Storm board pending the trial...if Voss is found not guilty. Voss was also affiliatd with Roy Harris. According to OTM, he is a BJJ purple belt, judo brown belt, and sambo master instructor.

I have had occassion to talk and chat with Voss. It is real scary when **** like this hits home...WTF? I can only imagine the shock that people who knew him better than I are experiencing.

I just got a VERY long e-mail from Voss from prison. It was a bit old (from June) as it ended up in the general bullshido mailbox. I replied to him and asked his permission to post it (as it contains some very personal info he might want redacted). It basically summarizes his side of the story.

Could you please make your argument in properly written English?

The first thing I would suggest is that he apply to his local public defenders office and ask them to consider filing an appeal on his behalf.

Have someone translate the thread for you as well. No one said anything bad. What is written is from the news article so, take it up with the news website.

Its not like anyone took sides or even said much of anything. Sambosteve posted a news article, that's about it.

You should probably follow Sam's advice on this one.....

So this is your brother's unsuccessful appeal.

I tell you what, if you can get a release from your brother waiving his attorney/client confidentiality with his attorney and provide me with their contact information, I'll call them and ask them why they agreed to a stipulated facts trial as verses a regular jury trial. Until then your brother looks guilty as charged.

Sorry Sam, that was a facepalm hahaha we both found that link post.


This thread should be a testament to the acronym STFU. This thing laid dormant for nearly a year. Two angry posts later and we know he was found guilty.
