Haha that's me. It was my first submission grappling tournament and I was laughing at how bad I was going to get worked in the team challenge. I jokingly said I was just going to get the flying armbar or flying gogoplata. I actually saw the guy do the thai plum in his first match though so I thought, why not try one, and I actually got it. I got worked in the finals of course, but that was expected.the one who was jumping around like he just took a hit of speed?
In a little gym in Wilkie. It is mostly just a hobby for most of the guys there, only train once a week and we don't train in the summer, I wish there was an MMA gym closer to North Battleford so I could train, gas is too high to make the trip up to Saskatoon weekly. When I am done school next year if I can do well enough in wrestling to get a scholarship to the university of regina or saskatoon, then I can finally train like I want to.
Thanks for the encouragement man, I just can't wait to start training full-time or at least 5 or 6 times a week. I am just ready to wrestle next year and try my best to impress anyone and everyone watching so I can go to University and wrestle in a bigger city, Saskatoon has a few good MMA gyms and I would love to train with AJ Scales in Regina.You could be a demon, if you're this young and pulling shit like that off already while just training casually. That would be awesome if you could get in with the Huskies. Todd Hind is a great trainer. He has pumped out some phenomenal wrestlers like Jeff Adamson (world class), Daniel Olver and Keith Folkerson.
Random Update: Did pretty good in wrestling this year. Started off 22-0 with 5 gold medals but lost the provincial final by 1 point to a guy I beat twice before so it was kind of disappointing. 22-1 overall high school year.
Then went to nationals in Burnaby, B.C. and went 2-2, placing fourth. Also tried out greco and went 1-1 getting a silver medal since there were only 3 people in the category.
Got some scholarship money from the U of R so I will be a Cougar next year competing in CIS and NAIA. Hope to become an All-American and All-Canadian as many times as possible. Since I'm in Regina hopefully I can train at Complete MMA as much as possible with AJ Scales and the guys there. Hope I can make a splash in MMA in the coming years.
It is likely that nobody will read this but I'm bored as hell.
