    While injured I started putting together a zine, and I am just putting the finishing touches on the first issue. Im printing it tonight after dinner. Do me a favor and add us on myspace and start checking the blog, because things are going to be rolling soon. Im stoked, hopefully people will be into it. Interviews, articles, etc etc. These will be circulating at the Us Grappling Diamond State Games for sure. For more info check out the blog. For now just start adding and spreading the word!

    Cool man, great use of your down time. Not sure I get the name though.

    In any case, well done, and I hope you are successful. Are you back training yet?

    Yup this was my first week back. It feels great. Ill start competing again in july once my weight goes back to normal.

    The name is a nod to bad brains, the greatest band of all time. And I felt it fits since a lot of the articles are sarcastically written

    Which still doesn't make sense in the BJJ context.

    Don't get me wrong - Bad Brains were one of the greatest groups of all time. Not downing them, just saying...

    I agree, it makes no sense at all. This kid is like a 16 year old punk rocker, I didn't make much sense as a 16 year old punk rocker, either. He also mentions to listen to Black Flag and to F your parents...which is kind of weird.

    I put out plenty of zines that said lame 16 year old stuff in them when I was his age, so I definitely get it. I commend him for doing it, zines have always been a throwback to the DIY culture in the punk rock scene.

    Fuck your parents?

    Is this "zine" targeting the 13-21 suburban crowd? Mountain Dew!

    It's your venture, it's free, and it's not hurting anyone, so I wish you well.

    NO, this is serious. I think with this name, Kenny is implying that Catch >>> BJJ, because they bann all the godd stuff in BJJ, like face cranks.

    I vote for Kenny getting demoted to Sherdog white belt. Tat is where it hurts the most...
