Having known Kelly for several years and had the opportunity to work out with him on several occasions, I'd recommend that anyone who can make this seminar should. He's a good guy with a very solid grasp of Harimau and good stuff to teach. I don't know if I can make it, but I'm going to try - Athens isn't all that far from me. And it'd be cool to meet some other people from here while I'm at it :)

Thanks for the recomendation Mike. You are more than welcome in Athens and for the cost of the seminar, I think everyone would get their money's worth. I hope to see you there and I can introduce you to some of the OU MMA club.

Absolutely. I'm going to try to make it. I've penciled it into my schedule and, barring unforseen obstacles, I plan on attending :)

I'll e-mail you when we get closer to the date and let you know for sure and, if I am coming, to get directions. I'm hosting a seminar the weekend before that here in Louisville - if anyone's interested, the info for it's at http://impactacademy.com/seminars/flyers/triple_impact

Part of my ability to attend your seminar depends on how well that seminar does. So, hopefully, it'll do well enough to give me some spare spending money.
