    That would be a pretty good thought on that. I was always one of those that didn't care so I would just do it and didn't matter who it was. Those types of things can cause issues even if there is no bad blood at all. I'm all up for competition but just not up for competition against guys that I've trained with or currently train with. Sooner or later fighting your own guys CAN, not that it will, but it CAN cause bad blood, to me anymore it just isn't worth the STRESS. Now, there is a problem that comes to mind, what if one of my teammates at the same weight has the belt and we are fighting for the same organization?? Do you or don't you take that fight if offered? My vote would be no, been there, done that, caught nothing but living hell about it from teammates and it isn't worth the stress. I'll never speak ill of AJJ, good guys, good teammates over the years. The days of competing against them are done for that reason as I would not compete against another MFS fighter either. If this is Rob (KoldKoK) thanks for the roll time the other night, definitely smaller class and more personalized, more like what I started out with in AJJ.

      I can agree with that Good Rev.... And no this is not Rob,this is Troye.... But the classes have gotten better. It works out better to have a lot of smallerclasses than two or three large ones.

        You know, if more AJJ people start posting here it's going to be pretty hard for me to cover up how much I suck.

        At least for those people who haven't seen footage from Throwdowns and such.

          Haha, man from time to time we all suck. Hey Troye, good to see you again. Had a good light roll with Rob and the guys last week, didn't know if KoldKok was him or not. How's it going for you? I remember the days of rolling out mats at Moffetts or going to Mac's in SKC etc...those are the class types that I remember, big change when you step into a class where the guys can barely move around it is so crowded, haha.

            I'm telling you, this is exactly what happened with MMA as a participant sport:

            1. Fight Club, the movie, planted the seed.

            2. "The Ultimate Fighter" reality show added the water and sunlight.

            Ever since TUF1, Crawford's has been booming. Couldn't happen to a nicer guy either.

              It is true everywhere. Hell, sometmes it is hard to roll there are so many damn people now (even though now we even have our own school).

                I'll never take away from people that can actually make it and survive teaching martial arts. I've seen too many fail miserably trying to make it. Anyone that is successful in MA is in the minority.

                  Well Good Rev I agree, I miss the old days too. But look where we are at now. I can't say that it is 100% better, but it is definately better than where AJJ was at. I am glad to see AJJ grow considering how much Mr.Crawford has put into it. I guess that I can stop waving my AJJ flag now. Neal you don't suck, just stop trying to roll with people who out weigh you by 200+ lbs.

                    Yeah that 200 plus lbs thing sucks... If you aren't Royce in a style vs style setting...you're screwed haha. Troye, we'll have to go do some lunch some time or something and BS for a bit man.

                        Cool, I know this week is booked with training and work, next week should open up on at least wednesday (usually my day off during the week). Stupid question...I will shortly be running pro wrestling shows again, (most likely few months away) plus teaching again when I have time but I will have an assistant that will handle a lot of that, when I start running shows, you guys want to sell tickets and make some extra bank as a ticket outlet? Normal ticket prices are from 10-15 bucks, couple of bucks per ticket sold. You're making money plus getting advertising at the same time as it would be listed on the flyers, show match booklets and any ads ran.

                          Cool, we'll met up and talk more about the details. Weds I teach but not till 8:30pm, so before that is cool.

                            I have a question for the American Ju-Jutsu crowd.

                            What throws do you guys work on and find practical in a MMA environment ? Are you guys dependant on the single/double leg shoot or do you go for things like Seio Nage (shoulder throw) or O Soto Gari (Major outer reap) ?

                              I try to throw as many passes at females as I can, does that count? Look at quite a few AJJ guys, most of those have wrestling backgrounds thus are good at leg takedowns to slipping the jab and getting close in to the waist/or swinging to the back for a dragging takedown. A lot of shoulder throws and upper body throws can be a pain to get when GI's aren't involved, although they are possible, look at Karo in UFC, judo player that adapted it for MMA.

                                Fair enough. I suppose it comes down to preference. Gi or No Gi, the body mechanics or executing hip throws and takedowns are still the same. Just the grip is different.
