    I lamed out on Sunday and didn't go to morning class.
    B.J. Penn came in and trained -- rolled with purples, browns
    and the prof. And I missed it. Laziness never pays.
    Supposedly he is coming again this coming Sunday...fingers crossed--
    would be very cool to meet him

    You must train at Machado BJJ in the Farmer's Market then, because I was there Sunday (I'm a white belt). It was indeed really cool, Penn spent some time rolling no gi with his friend, then he spent a long time rolling with John Machado, working on some guard things.

    Penn looked a little bigger than I would've expected.

    On the other hand, during rolling that day I took a poke to the eye, a shot to the nads, and ended the day by getting stacked into a neck crank, so I was a little worse for wear ...

    Hallman has problems beating non-cans not named Matt Hughes. BJ Penn just has trouble trying to fight guys 200+ lbs who KO Middleweight Champs like Rich Franklin. :D

    Cool. I'm sure we've probably met, but can't remember it. I'm Dan, white belt, 6'1 and about 180, buzz haircut. I'll see you there, but am gonna be out until Sunday.
