MAN in the last 3 hours I got 6 emails from is email blast about the freakin Miyao DVD?!?!
The dude is inches away from Elliot Rodger level of social insanity. Check out the UG thread he started yesterday on the Miyao set, it's well worth reading for comic relief.
A serious cry for help here.
He made that catchy headline as viral marketing to get us to check out that dvd. LI marketing at it's finest right there, straight money grab.
Probably true. It doesn't matter how insane or loathesome it is, as long as there's a chance, any chance, of making 35 cents off the deal, a True Committed Winner would do it. Anything.
--- Do you have what it takes to throw your personal integrity and credibility away so that you can fail to achieve anything noteworthy in an undercompetitive niche sport?
--- Then come with me, as I teach you Master Llimp's secrets to sociopathic marketing 101.
--- Also, never forget that male prostitution is an option too.
Nice thread Jordon
I had not gotten an e-mail from him in about 1year 1/2.
then yesterday --- boom! 2 e-mails. And like the T.S. I got like 6 about the dvds since early this morning.
I actually got 1 (email) from Lavato jr. - because I had ordered his guard dvd a while back.
I ended up getting the meow dvd - since i got the lavato pressure passing dvd free and it was only 97$ for both.
Anyhow, j.s. is a scumbag, and annoying as well.
Anyone remember when he went nuts because people were not opening his "free" techniques that he was e-mailing? free techniques he took from Cobrinha.
*make that 7 emails since 9am - just got another.
Maybe you should "Get the FUCK off [his] list" then!
You can take the grappler out of TLI but you can't take the TLI out of a grappler.
lmao! TS has only 1 post.
lol, remember this goodie?
I, along with many of you, have been keenly following the adventures of Trey in Jordan's regular "Training Blog" emails. For those of you who have missed them until now - I have posted them below. It is a real emotional roller-coaster journey, with cliffhangers and moments of true heartbreak.
Please, if anyone has heard ANYTHING, please let us know. Let's not forget the little guy.
I pick up Trey on the way - a white belt who
doesn't drive. I give him rides when I can. He's
a good kid - 20 years old, wants to do MMA.
He needs a good mentor and I talk to him
about dedication, drive, pursuit of goals and
hard work as we drive.
I tell the kid about my mindset, about how
all it takes in one.
"all it takes is one" is a mantra I live by. And it
came to me from a mentor at a very critical
point in my life, actually it saved me life...more
on that later.
I say "all it takes is one match, one tournament, you
can lose a thousand times, but if you tap a good guy,
that's when the magic happens."
He asks about failure and I say:
"Trey, in this game failure is around every corner, but when you
view it like a corrective tool, like a smart teacher
standing over your shoulder telling you, "that doesn't
work - try something else" failure becomes your best
friend, your guide.
He laughs. You don't actually like failure do you, he says.
I don't, Trey, I hate it actually, I say.
But it's grown on me, I say.
He goes quiet for a moment and nods
as if he understands.
We arrive to the school and start the first
session of the day...
I see Trey cleaning the common area and ask him how his day went.
"Good man" he says. But I see right through it.
His face is sunken in, and I can see pain in his eyes.
I can tell he's hungry. He doesn't
have much money and when I can I help him.
I buy him food.
I sneak him a twenty dollar bill and
tell him to buy bread and butter. He smiles and
looks around to see if anyone's watching - then
gives me a quick hug.
I leave and prepare for night training...
I see Trey, the white belt kid who I mentor in
the hallway, laughing and joking with a few
I ask him how he's doing.
"super-fantastic" he says.
I tell him he needs to be more serious.
He says "I'm almost done cleaning - chill out"
I say " DO YOU WANT TO BE A CHAMPION?! " in a stern voice.
I then explain how a determined person is serious about
everything, whether it's cleaning a toilet, or drilling a guard
pass I'm going to give 100% to it.
He say's "yes sir" and walks away.
I was probably too harsh on the kid, but
sometimes I think he needs that.
I can see in his face that he's startled. He wasn't
expecting that from me.
I see Trey again after class today
I say "what up man"
And he goes "I got taken off the mat dude"
I say "for what"
He goes "skin issues" and walks away prematurely.
I think I know whats going on I say to myself. Trey doesn't
have a washer at home, he lives with his sister, who is poor.
He's probably been hand washing his gi's. Poor kid. I tell myself
that over the weekend I'll wash all his gis for him.
Coming from TLI he probably trades these favors for other "favors". Poor kid, indeed.
the last $10 i have to my names says that Jordon has a shoebox filled with cat and dog bones under his bed
Surprised nobody else has called TS out for this. Hope the mods come along soon.
Interesting, TS. You have the same IP address as chliu1109, LondonBJJ, and Digitsu. Doesn't Digitsu produce DVD's? What's going on here?
For what it's worth, I think Jordon is mentally ill, from everything I've seen (no, I don't know him).
Digitsu also has been spamming the forum with "question" threads recently ("What's your favorite belt?" etc). Something going on?
PS good sig SSR I just revised a legal brief where my junior associate kept misusing the term "predominate" as if it was an adjective. It's seriously irritating.
People still buy DVDs?
They have this thing called Torrent now. You should get it.
Most lawyers are actually pretty poor writers. It's been bothering me lately that I find myself having to revise things written by people with years more experience than me.
make that 9 e-mails since 9am this morning.
fuck off j.s.
*make that now 11 emails.
Separate names with a comma.
