Matt J K replied to Regular Joe's discussion Vote Now: America's Ugliest Accent

Jail

Hamming it up at the Jail Hostel in Ottawa. It used to be a prison, but has been converted into a great hostel. I had great cell mates (of course, we could leave whenever we wanted). I never knew prison could be so much fun!

Wrestling Fight Club

This group is for anyone interested in the sport of wrestling, whether you wrestled in school or are just a fan and want to learn.  People say it's a dying sport but the popularity of MMA has really brought home the importance of wrestling as a skillset that every man needs, especially anyone interested in martial arts in general.  Hopefully this can facilitate discussion and people looking for training partners in their areaSee More

Hey Matt--

How is the jiu jitsu going? I have been away from it now for over a year, and really want to get back to it, but hate the idea of having my ass kicked for weeks just to get back in the routine. Any inspirational thoughts on this one?
