    Love these threads (Read your advice to fighters post as well). Great insight and you touch on a lot of things a lot of other fighters won't touch on ( Like be a good F***ing person ). It's important to keep your humbleness and good vibes through any walk of life, even the fight bizz. We've got a lot of the same ideals man, wish you all the best. :)

    Anyone find it ironic that the guy whose writing a tip/mentor sticky was 0-4 in competition with all his losses coming via stoppage ?

    Currently 1-1. My coach (Travis Lutter) requires 3 wins before going pro (works out well since most guys need 4 to 6 fights to get 3 total wins; as a result we get valuable experience).

    If your ever in the DFW metroplex send me a PM and you can come train for free

    At first glance i would say yes but there was alot of good advice here imo. i know who josh is from the Muay Thai and Kickboxing scene here because he runs a rly strong group of fighters. i never spoke to him or met him but I do know from others that lots of peeps say he is the go to coach in mtl for anything to do with striking.

    Jean Yves Theriault and his promoter brother mention him all the time as being rly high level as a coach and here in Canuck land that means something

    Yeah my post i made was almost 3 years old. It's was more of a reflection of a previous sticky thread he had where it was literally called "the fighting bible" and it was literally him just spouting generic info ( "uh listen to your coaches" "uhhh don't eat junk food" "uhhh don't get arrested"). It was kind of a joke

    i dont know if i ever saw it. he is an ok guy by me. he has a few really good fighters in the scene here. he has trained alot of champions on the scene here but he's for sure the last guy id go to for mma LOL. a shit fighter can be a good coach tho as we know and most here says he is rly good and mtl is a huge city with lots and lots of gyms so maybe he is a good coach

    Hey Guys
    Can anyone offer advice here ....


    I have been taking Gracie and boxing with two separate coaches.

    Coach (a) boxing
    Coach (b) Gracie

    I respect them both a lot. The bjj coach is well mastered in MMA ( coach b). I tried the pads with him this week. He pretty much slammed everything I have learned from my traditional boxing coach (coach a).

    coach (b) pretty much wants to un-train everything coach (a) taught me.


    I’m training for my first fight early next year. Unsure if I stick with the mma coach or my boxing coach. Has anyone been in this kinda situation ?
