    I will sum this up the best I can.

    In 1994 my brother got me a private lesson with Royce Gracie, I basically just wanted to roll with him, to feel his power etc.. I setup the appointment on the phone with him and asked if I could bring a video camera, he keep telling me "No" but after the 3rd or 4th time, he finally said it was cool, and now I have this video.

    Anyway, I brought my best friend with me.. because we were both training in BJJ at the time, and we were curious what it was like to roll with the legendary RG.

    My friend asked him one question "So, you dont like time limits in the UFC?" then he went off and spilled so much info, its insane.. he talked about Keith Hackney, Ken Shamrock, Dan Severn and a shitload of other stuff (UFC related). I'm talking detailed shit, people being on cocaine before fights and shit hahahahah and I have it all on video.

    My question is, would anyone be interested in viewing it? Should I take the time to transfer the video tape to digital? Do you think its worth anything etc?

    Everytime I went to the Gracie Academy.. I actually saw a few "Gracie challenges" (Full contact fighting) live, challengers would get their ass kicked.. then one of the Gracie brothers would get them to sign up to learn BJJ.

    P.S. I was on my back, and Royce was standing up, my foot was tucked in Royce's armpit, and I was setting up a heel hook from the ground.. I was getting all excited.. then Royce applied instant pressure to my ankle, I didnt even get a chance to tap, he straight up, fucked up my ankle for a few days! hahahah I remember slow tapping because my foot was already fucked up haha, oh man!

    P.S.S before my first grapple with Royce, I did a crazy power ranger stance, like I know some exotic shit, I remember him looking at my friend as if to say "what the fuck is this?" it was funny to see his face, then I started to laugh, and tell him just kidding! (I didnt start filming right away, so its not on tape)

    Interesting titbits.

    It all sounds legit but by the law of the internet I have to assume you're lying until I see the video.

    And then this one time at Gracie camp we were in the showers and Royce was all like laughing and I was wondering if I could borrow his shampoo and he looked at my friend and was like "What?"

    Wow that story should have been 5,089 sentences shorter
