That's reasonable

2018-01-25 19:00:46 UTC  

If they had to choose between the two, I'd tell them join a MMA gym before joining a regular gym.

2018-01-25 19:02:00 UTC  

How many dead hang pull ups can you do. Push-ups etc

2018-01-25 19:04:37 UTC  


2018-01-25 19:15:10 UTC  

hell yeah glad to see you guys jumping in FUK YEAH

2018-01-25 19:15:39 UTC  

exactly what Mosby said...MMA gym first, regular gym second

2018-01-25 19:15:43 UTC  

but be prepared

2018-01-25 19:15:47 UTC  

shit is going to cost.

2018-01-25 19:16:09 UTC  

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

2018-01-25 19:16:27 UTC  

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

2018-01-25 19:16:58 UTC  

technique over mucles all day

2018-01-25 19:17:19 UTC  

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

2018-01-25 19:17:26 UTC  

thought I was hot owned by a 5'4 female

2018-01-25 19:18:07 UTC  

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

2018-01-25 19:18:25 UTC  

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

2018-01-25 19:18:59 UTC  

Or you end up grappling and get symbolically raped.

2018-01-25 19:19:26 UTC  

Always do both train the muscle and the skill.

2018-01-25 19:20:13 UTC  

In wrestling the strongest and most aggressive will always win.

2018-01-25 19:22:23 UTC  

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

2018-01-25 19:22:26 UTC  

this guy Dan Baker

2018-01-25 19:22:30 UTC

2018-01-25 19:22:35 UTC  

might not look like much

2018-01-25 19:22:52 UTC  

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

2018-01-25 19:23:16 UTC

2018-01-25 19:31:41 UTC  

He's nothing compared to our best.

2018-01-25 19:45:59 UTC  

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

2018-01-25 20:04:40 UTC  

@JCAdams check your PM

2018-01-25 20:05:43 UTC  

@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

2018-01-25 20:06:03 UTC  

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

2018-01-25 23:35:24 UTC  

@Der Jäger

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

That's where I trained.

When were u training there?

2018-01-25 23:38:42 UTC  

Just got back from the gym

2018-01-25 23:38:46 UTC  


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).

2018-01-25 23:38:50 UTC  

I'm a scrawny boy but I'm trying

2018-01-26 00:04:17 UTC  

@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

2018-01-26 00:04:45 UTC  

Now I train at this place

2018-01-26 00:04:52 UTC
