Not to take anything away from Dan with the sticks but I used to go to professor Remy Presas seminars twice a year and that was a guy that could move some sticks.

bahaha, I know this place. It's way north, basically out of town in an old building that looks like it used to be an olde time schoolhouse. I drove past it the week before on the way to some pub in Dewitt.

The only reason i brought up discounts is because of the timing right now. But yea, you'll have it for Crystal Mt.

Plus you have a great return policy in your hands should you absolutely hate it. Win-win.

I have no qualms about buying hardgoods at full retail. Soft goods, that's another story.
Preach it.

/never bought soft goods at retail either

Yeah I did some Muay Thai and Brazilian JJ over there, but it was pricey as hell to train there IMO. I wound up going and working out with Joaquin Rodriguez over with Murcielago MMA for a half a year or so; he was one of the guys who originally trained Rashad Evans. Most of the guys there were actual amateur fighters (couple of small time pros as well). Holy fucking hell that was a workout. But I know how to get myself out of a rear-naked choke now!

Gouge the shit out of the dude's eyes or shove your fingers way up their nose as hard as you can.

It's more likely the board is going to be sold out before the sales begin, the chance to save that 20% was slim AND you'd have to wait till next year to enjoy it but more likely would have been stuck without and you'd end up buying the 2013 at retail price.

Thanks guys, I'm not worried about it one bit. I've researched the hell outta this, asked a lot of questions and believe I made the best choice. I do have to thank everyone for their input on it all along the way.

Edit: On the flip side of that, I'm coming after you motherfuckers if I hate the board, so make sure you study up on the MA! lol

In MA schools, usually the shitier the school looks, the better the training is going to be.

We should all attempt a late season meet somewhere even if it's at Mt. Holly. Ideally, Highlands or Crystal Mt...

I'd like to meet you new guys in this group! *cough* Karp, Trap, and KungFu *cough*

Oh, Angela too even though I've already tried a billion times lol.

I'm much smaller than you so I'm going to assume faster. Good luck trying to catch me. I have no qualms about committing to a stun-and-run tactic against big oafs like you, Sabatoa, and David Z.
