    I had heard of Kyle before, but that was the first time I've seen a video of him him grappling. It really puts shit into perspective...


    "I can't" is now perminatly removed from my vocabulary.

    I've trained with her at Purebred in Omiya. Instead of training I just kind of sat and paid attention to her adaptations. It was amazing. She had no problems locking in armbars and triangles believe it or not. Her guard was easier to pass, but mounts were much difficult to hold.

    Her arm drag was unstoppable and any amount of weight you could use to crush her would lead to having her slip to your back. I learned a lot about grappling from her. She's hot too.:icon_chee

    all I vaguely know from viewing those pics in 64color through VNC is I think he trains at JJU under Saulo, but not sure. (Saw Saulo on something, and university on something else)
