Hi guys. Just got back from the get together, tired but pumped at the same time. I had a really great time, and everyone there was extremely cool. Some quick highlights:

*JohnL is an excellent teacher, and completely changed my impression of what people can do with Shotokan. He worked different concepts that were straight out of the Wing Chun stuff I was going to show, as well as some stuff similar to AKK. Really excellent.

*I feel really sorry for someone that draws a knife or gun on RangerG - he is relentless!!! Scary!!!

*Raul Perez - very knowledgeable, and not above getting dirty to prove it. He and I rolled a match at the end of class, and despite a very nice reversal (if I do say so myself ), and a collar choke attempt on my part, Raul almost got a better choke on me, and then tapped me with a nice arm bar when I attempted to stack him to break his choke. Props bro!!

*Gojuwarrior1 is a muscular, scary dude! His technique is very powerful.

*Schanne is a very knowledgeable guy, too. His skills with stand-up grappling and ground stuff was quite impressive. He showed a couple of really cool leg locks that I wished we had more time to work on!

Unfortunately, no stand up sparring for liability reasons, but at least we got a couple rounds of free-grappling. JohnL worked a top control drill with me that pretty much told me that my shrimping skills blow.

Now, I know the question that everyone is waiting to hear:

Did MattJ break anyone's nose?

Sadly, the answer is no. I did give JohnL a pretty good fat lip during one of the grappling drills, however. So we can all feel good about that.

I have a group photo that my dinosuar dial-up will not let me upload. I will put them on as soon as I can, hopefully the other guys can put up some, too. RangerG took a bunch.

Now, if anyone needs me, I will be whimpering softly in the corner about how sore my wrist is!

Yea, JohnL put all his weight on you. I thought you were going to pop! Its a shame we couldn't spar, i would have loved to get beat up on some more . I don't think JohnL or schanne liked me too much, because they sure were pickin' on me. I took the fun away from everyone else!

I would love to get together with any of you guys again, you were all very knowledgeable and kind, the way all martial artists should be. This venue should definitely be every 6 months or so, it was great! Hope the others enjoyed their sushi .
