WildBill...

Its an old nick, returns to haunt me no matter where I move. I am a guide, also an exbiker, and I look quite wild at times. (long uncombed hair curly red hair and beard, not quite dreads but close after a week or 2 in the bush)

With MA it started because of my fighting style, very aggressive and not always well controlled, or completely "by the book". I like to go hard when sparring. I modify techniques, and add things from other styles to my Muay Thai. Also I do a lot of things instinctivly that no-one ever taught me to do, mostly with my elbows, backfists, etc.(street stuff, like turning a backfist into a guillotine, or sticking a pointy elbow into a leg or punch as a block)

I am nice to begginers when I have control, but the faster and harder it goes the more likely I am to hit a little low...its never intentional, but I do it more than others. Any where I spar people know to always wear a cup with me, no matter how light we are supposed to be going.

My family calls me the Monkey cause I roll around on the floor and do a great monkey impression for the kids

One sensei calls me Rockin Raul... not too sure why but he's 250lbs so I'm not gonna argue.

And lately my kids class has been calling me "Mr. Pushups" because I make them do push ups if they are givin me crappy stances

Jonnyboxcutter and several variants, but I canít remember why I got it. It started back in the early 90ís when I first started tech work. Nobody uses it anymore; I just use it as my online persona.

Oh I almost cam to be known as savage Joe (becuase I'm aggressive and eat like a savage normally) but that fell through. My friend Joe's friends all have Joe nicknames as well as him (he's G.I. Joe or G.I. Jew) but he decided not to.

When I was extremely young I was called Pumpkin because I was a chubby baby. My father used to call me Scabs as I was always injured and had cuts and scrapes and stitches ... and nothing has changed. A friend who I joined TKD with (who quit at white belt) called me and still does Band-Aid Boy (same reason). During my junior/high school football days I was called CO as I was usually a captain and also because something to do with my last name and it always being mis-spelled. My wife likes to call be Darebear. When I first joined TKD we did some grappling but not to as much as we do now. We had brought in a Roman Greco coach and I manhandled quite a few people and my Instructor nicknamed me The Bull at that time. All in fun.

If I wasn't nicknamed The Tiger I'd probably be The Bear. That's the next best nickname for me but I like The Tiger, I think I'll keep it.

'Zombie' is a nickname I got while I was in the service. If you'd ever seen me after a night of partying, but before coffee and shower, you'd understand.

When I started playing online games, I tried using 'Zombie' as my screen name, but it was always taken. It always suggested adding a number, but I didn't want to be 'Zombie68375' so I figured, if it's going to be a number, then why not Zero?

Hence, Zombie Zero.
or Zom, Double-Z, Zed...
