Der Jäger 2018-01-25 19:15:43  

but be prepared

Der Jäger 2018-01-25 19:15:47  

shit is going to cost.

Der Jäger 2018-01-25 19:16:09  

i spend $90 for two days a week of boxing/jkd/muay thai but it is worth it

Der Jäger 2018-01-25 19:16:27  

i feel confident/not cocky when I'm faced with aggression

Der Jäger 2018-01-25 19:16:58  

technique over mucles all day

Der Jäger 2018-01-25 19:17:19  

when I first stepped in an MMA gym...KMAA in Knoxville I was deadlifting 420 and benching 260

Der Jäger 2018-01-25 19:17:26  

thought I was hot owned by a 5'4 female

Der Jäger 2018-01-25 19:18:07  

never underestimate your enemy...the guy who looks skinny might have been doing BJJ for 10 years straight and will put you down

Der Jäger 2018-01-25 19:18:25  

the bulked up dude might get dropped with a right cross, left hook, elbow

GenZ_88 2018-01-25 19:18:59  

Or you end up grappling and get symbolically raped.

GenZ_88 2018-01-25 19:19:26  

Always do both train the muscle and the skill.

GenZ_88 2018-01-25 19:20:13  

In wrestling the strongest and most aggressive will always win.

Der Jäger 2018-01-25 19:22:23  

yup...and here's a perfect example of what I'm talking about

Der Jäger 2018-01-25 19:22:26  

this guy Dan Baker

Der Jäger 2018-01-25 19:22:30

Der Jäger 2018-01-25 19:22:35  

might not look like much

Der Jäger 2018-01-25 19:22:52  

but he's a BJJ Master and bodyguard for the leader of Tallahasee antifa

Der Jäger 2018-01-25 19:23:16

GenZ_88 2018-01-25 19:31:41  

He's nothing compared to our best.

JCAdams 2018-01-25 19:45:59  

@Der Jäger good to know. I'll make sure our guys are informed for the rally this weekend. anymore Tallahassee intel?

Der Jäger 2018-01-25 20:04:40  

@JCAdams check your PM

Der Jäger 2018-01-25 20:05:43  

@GenZ_88 Just don't let him get you on the ground...then you're fuked. Personally unless its strickly one on one with rules and sheet, I prefer to stand up any day

Der Jäger 2018-01-25 20:06:03  

grounding and grappling in a crowd of who knows who is dangerous af

John Mosby 2018-01-25 23:35:24  

@Der Jäger

LOL! You trained at KMAA??????

That's where I trained.

When were u training there?

CatoHostilius 2018-01-25 23:38:42  

Just got back from the gym

John Mosby 2018-01-25 23:38:46  


Im skinny AF, and they always put the new shredded guys who joined our gym against me, to shut their egos down. I'm 6' and flux between 150 and 160...been in more street fights than I can count, always against bigger guys, and I've only lost a couple fights (not bragging, just stating facts...muscles dont account for shit against someone who in trained in fighting).

CatoHostilius 2018-01-25 23:38:50  

I'm a scrawny boy but I'm trying

Der Jäger 2018-01-26 00:04:17  

@John Mosby yeah when I first got the idea to do mma I went to KMAA, trained with OSPs coach. Did a session with Tractor when he came into town. Good times, cool you trained there as well! What time period? I was there in 2013-14ish

Der Jäger 2018-01-26 00:04:45  

Now I train at this place

Der Jäger 2018-01-26 00:04:52  

Jus finished actually

Der Jäger 2018-01-26 00:04:57  

Head ringing lol

Der Jäger 2018-01-26 00:05:21

John Mosby 2018-01-26 00:06:11  


I was there from 2009 til 2011.

I had to quit cuz I moved across town and started having kids.

They have a new location a lot closer to me, and lowered their rates, so I think Ill start going back this spring.

John Mosby 2018-01-26 00:06:46  

Sorry, 2010-2012

Der Jäger 2018-01-26 00:07:15  

Nice! Good ppl there. I probably jus missed ya then. Eppolitos boxing gym is also a good spot

Der Jäger 2018-01-26 00:07:25  

Frank trained osp on his stand up

John Mosby 2018-01-26 00:08:14  


OSP is really cool...always super nice to me, even though everyone there knew I was WN (everyone was super cool with me, for that matter).

John Mosby 2018-01-26 00:08:59  

A good friend of mine is training there now, so Im gonna start going back

Der Jäger 2018-01-26 00:09:06  

Generally speaking ppl at combat gyms are cool about race

John Mosby 2018-01-26 00:09:55  

Ya, they wanted me to fight on their team...I was scheduled for my first AM fight, but had to drop out right before it, cuz my kid was born with heart problems.
