    You got Video in my Article section!

    Yeah we did. There wasn't a really good way of honoring this individual without visually demonstrating his badassery. So here you go:

    Very nice job ! Definitely a badass of high caliber
    I don't mean to sound bitter, cold, or cruel, but I am, so that's how it comes out.

    I had a poster of him on my wall as a teenager in the late eighties.

    It's too bad doesn't live in America because I can't afford to stalk him in Russia.

    If we're nut-riding wrestlers, can't we have Saitiev instead?

    What's the name of that particular suplex variant he keeps doing? Or is there not one?
    Go placidly amid the noise and haste,
    and remember what peace there may be in silence.
    As far as possible, without surrender,
    be on good terms with all persons.
    Speak your truth quietly and clearly;
    and listen to others,
    even to the dull and ignorant;
    they too have their story.

    -excerpt of the poem called "Desiderata," by Max Ehrman, 1927.

    AKA 'anus lift'. My neck always hurts everytime he slams the crap out of pple with that one.

    BTW, this is an awesome choice for Badass of the Month.
    Read this for flexibility and injury prevention, this, this and this for supplementation, this on grip conditioning, and this on staph. New: On strenght standards, relationships and structural balance. Shoulder problems? Read this.

    My crapuous vlog and my blog of training, stuff and crap. NEW: Me, Mrs. Macho and our newborn baby.

    New To Weight Training? Get the StrongLifts 5x5 program and Rippetoe's "Starting Strength, 2nd Ed". Wanna build muscle/gain weight? Check this article. My review on Tactical Nutrition here.

    The street argument is retarded. BJJ is so much overkill for the street that its ridiculous. Unless you're the idiot that picks a fight with the high school wrestling team, barring knife or gun play, the opponent shouldn't make it past double leg + ground and pound - Osiris
