Hey Guys and Gals,
Sorry for the lack of updates. I have been focused a lot on my training and students lately. In fact, one of them may have his first fight coming up this year. As a result, my site has been neglected a bit. Just to give you a few updates with me, I have been taking a yoga course recently, and may be adding that to what I teach in the near future. I love Yoga, and find it helps immensly with proper breathing when you fight.
Also, a lot has been going on in the MMA world. There have been some great fights in the last month or so. Chuck Liddell should officially retire after that last fight. I have a lot of respect for both Pat Barry and Rich Franklin now. I’m really looking forward to the Carwin vs Lesnar fight coming up soon, as well as the UFC Fan Expo which will be in Boston in August.
At the end of the month, I will be in DC for a weekend. If anyone knows of a gym I should check out while I am in town, let me know and I’ll write up a review if I can make time to check it out.
So stay tuned in the coming week for some new updates. Thanks all.
I found this 3 day seminar which looks pretty interesting. It is with some Top MMA coaches for fighters such as GSP, Rashard Evans, Nate Marquardt, Kenny Florian, Patrick Cote and Michelle Waterson. The actual coaches are: Mark DellaGrotte, Greg Jackson, Shawn Thomkins, Dave Camarillo and Ricardo Liborio. Also, the events have been known to have guest fighters appear such as Antonio Nogoueira, Jon Fitch, Bas Rutten, Pat Millitech, Chuck Lidell, BJ Penn and more. Now, I seriously doubt that all those guys will be there. Most likely they have been there at past events, and probably no more than 1 big name guest per event. It seems pretty promising, and it’s something I am considering when it comes to the East Coast. Here is the pricing, schedule and other information:
Dana point March 13-15 Colorado March 20-22
Chicago March 27-29 Boston April 3-5
Miami April 10-12
Three day seminar (for early birds) $400.00
Three Day Seminar + Meals $550.00
One day seminar $150.00
Spectator Fees $30.00
Special Rates for families and groups!! Call
*Deposit of $200.00 is required at the time of reservation.
