    I wrote this small book on how to make the most of the resources and still get as much potential as possible. It's also my journey from a lookey loo to a fighter and then a trainer in the very first generation of MMA. Not a masterpiece but I'm good with it...

    A book I wrote

    I've mainly been discussing muay thai on here but I'd like to take a minute to self promote. That's not the reason I'm here. Although it took me a long thoughtful process to write it. I haven't promoted it at all. I've published 3 books and had one printed by St. Martins press. It's not...

    Teaching MMA as Muay Thai

    I'm familiar with Queensland Muay Thai back to the glory days of JWP. In fact I have a picture of him at my house when he came to do a seminar at my gym. Essentally, what I'm saying is your question is NO, if you want to fight muay thai train at a MT gym. If you want to fight MMA, train at a MMA...

    Teaching MMA as Muay Thai

    Well, I'm going to say you are pretty uneducated. The title of your thread just irritated me and the video was not Muay Thai. Dude, the world has known grappling beats striking or smothering beats a boxer. How many fights did you coach have? its silly to waste my time with this argument anymore...

    Teaching MMA as Muay Thai

    we can agree to disagree but so your coach fought a muay thai match? did he really? against a real muay thai fighter? did he gain anything except saying, ' Look, I had a MT rules fight and I just smothered the **** out of him, I'm multidimensional' . It may impress the **** out of you but I...

    Train in self-defense program, or MMA?

    How realistic is this compared to a gun in the US these days. Gangs used to rob and fight with knives. Stay away from those areas and give the guy your wallet and let him walk away! I would only fight on the street if I had no other option. Not to brag but I could really damage people on the...

    Train in self-defense program, or MMA?

    So even if you are on the ground, you can pull your weapon and put it in the guys gut and empty the clip. Let's not overestimate our abilities in martial arts. Also, when is the last time these days someone was in a knife fight? 1950?
