Fair game in Texas...that's good.

I took 2 years of judo and 9 months of BJJ. At first I did it for fitness, but then I got into the history and liked the hands-on application.

That stuff in the ring for grappling is unreal! I can't believe a guy that thinks he's that good will let himself get pinned for that long without trying to squirm out. There are plenty of techniques when you're on the ground. I like choking when I'm on the bottom.

I used to spar in BJJ with a guy who had taken over 10 years of either kung fu or wing chung (boy, I hope I didn't say that wrong). That dude was badass and had certain pressure points down pat.

And no, I don't have the patience to learn all the katas of certain arts. I tend to stay away from those now. TKD was my first art I tried, and it left a bad taste in my mouth.
