View Full Version : Read or Die (ROD)

The Question
8/21/2009 3:18pm,
I don't think you'll die if you don't read it, but it would be good to read it anyway, right? I mean, has reading really ever hurt anybody? Well, not anyone with decent vision ...

Right, now Q-dot the vicious has not been vicious over the past year, what with the abrupt stopping of Muay Thai training last year and so forth. There is no good MT/Kickboxing/Sanshou out here, no fighting anyway, so I figured I would go for the next closest thing.

As such, I have been boxing. It turns out I'm not that good at it. I think I used to rely on kicking people in the head or something, and didn't really have any power behind my punches. Also, boxing was just so different. I lost the first two fights narrowly by decision, then won the third one narrowly by decision. I don't think I'll lose too many more though, because I think I'm starting to get competent. Or I may be delusional, I dunno.

Then a couple days ago I heard of possible MMA fights going on on the island. Like whoa. I could totally kick people in the head again. Of course, my kicking is sure to be rusty, due to all the recent inactivity. So what am I going to do to get myself ready for the possibility of Mixed Martial Combat? I'm going to start my own gym. Right

So I know I'll need a coach. But **** it, I can't get one. Unless one of you guys knows someone in Jamaica who can coach people for MMA fights, or grappling and so forth.
Still, the absence of a coach will not hold me back. Me and some dudes are going to get this gym up and running.

We must give ourselves a fighting chance.

Which by the way is going to be the name of the gym:

"The Fighting Chance"

Oh my word, this is going to be so fucking awesome.

Anyway, what I need you guys to tell me is what exactly I will need. What will we need to start our own gym?

Oh, and I'm not fucking around here.

Money. You will need money, to buy stuff and a place to put it. Sniff around the local business community and find people who are fans of combat sports. See if they would sponsor a gym.

So do you listen to Bob Marley instead of ACDC at your Gym?

Well no, but we do live up to all other stereotypes. For example, during the break between rounds, all smoke a fatty and sip on white rum. It makes fighting difficult after a while, but **** it, we'll be damned if we aren't 100% committed to jammin, mon.

Also, I have dreads.

Get the basics. A bag or two, matts for the floor and some padding for the walls, some weights, some sparring partners and other people who know what they are doing and some basic equipment, like gloves etc. If you are limited in equipment set up circut training or somthing. Maby a locker or two for the important stuff, like cell phones and wallets and junk.

I'll coach for you. It'll be about as legit as the rest of the gym anyways
and you're going to be short on cash while I am willing to work for weed.

Isn't white rum a little to harsh for you? Maybe try some purple kush and a Smirnoff Ice.

I read it, I didn't die, its probably safe.
Will you still kill me though?
Some of us want to die already geeez

You should get mats a bag and a cheap stereo, and maybe some weights, and one of those big blue balls, and a hooka pipe that you use to smoke weed

Won't the ganja make him eat too many doritos, thus making him gain weight?

You need to smoke some "I Can't Believe Its Not Ganja" and you'll be fine.

Or any tires for that matter. Dragging, flipping, pushing. And go get some sand bags, big rocks, coffee cans(fill them with concrete),.......

Get creative with the equipment. And if you want some crazy good workouts, let me know. I am offering my sports conditioning knowledge to you. Providing you go out and bust some heads.
