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?

Hey Matt,

Thanks for the friend request.

I'd like to talk more as well.  What your status now and did all that effect you later or influence your direction?

I noticed you've read healing the Masculine Soul. Did you like it or did it help?

"Having tried out a few hundred fountain pens, I was left unimpressed by MontBlanc. They are simply not writing tools, but rather fashion accessories that look better in your shirt pocket than in your hand. "
