Chen,

Since this thread is centered around you perhaps you could shed some light on your previous training.

1. Where and what style. How old you were, how long etc..
2. How you trained.
3. Ranks (if any).
4. Fighting experience in dojo's or with other styles, etc..

Share anything you like!

How would I reacted had someone else posted this? Its hard to say, it really depens on who it was, and how much respect I held for that person. Id like to think though, that I would give the best advice possible, and wish them luck. Then that way, if they got in, they might put in a word for me!




Well, there was advice amongst the humour in my first post (if you look at that post in full, feel free to notice the 'raz' emoticon in there ), so I will copy it here:

Quote:

Make the leap and go train with a pro MMA team. Impress them, get used as training partners for their top guys, win on undercards/small promotions, get noticed by Dana. Now you have to not only win on various undercards and spike freeviews, but win with style. Now you will get on the broadcast undercard of a big PPV, and you have to win well and start calling out Sylva inbetween shouting sponsors names down the mic. Rinse, repeat 4 or 5 times, and you will get your chance to be owned by...er I mean, your chance to fight Anderson 'i am a very good Muay Thai fighter and thats why nobody can clinch me that well' Sylva.

Good luck.




That really is the progression from where you are, to where you want to be.

my thanks for your condolences, and i understand the sentiment behind the 'life is too short' stuff, but imagine if you died having never enjoyed a good row with anyone- how dull would that be?

Quote:

Oh, and we can have that JKD experience talk whenever your ready!




I have always seen JKD's concept(s) as the seed from which MMA has grown, so was wondering how you see your JKD training fitting into your newly chosen path?

Turn this thread away from the final destination (Silva), and concentrate on the journey (the transition to a pro MMAist), and you will get no doubting thomas's on here at all. I believe you have every chance of doing that Chen, and look forward to hearing about how it goes

Brian,

1. Chen Tai Chi Chuan with GM Dillman for 6 months.
2. Online mostly, one or two seminar back in the 90's with Dillman.
3. 7th Dan given to me by Musashin Minamoto by mail.
4. I've fought off ninjas on a daily basis. Damn ninjas!

Wait.. you asked Chen? Err... I thought you asked me lol.


Chen,

What lineage of JKD do you come from? I'd be cool to see a JKD fighter in the UFC instead of the MT/BJJ dudes.

Also knowing you're a striker mainly, any ideas of how you're going to implement your strategies into this game where most people are eithe GnP or submission fighters?

I'd hang on to those thoughts Taison till Chen advised he has finally started "training". Not just attending classes to learn but training to fight.

Anderson Silva... That's a tough nut to crack...

Why not set a smaller goal and advance from there?

Anything happening yet Chen?

Since this all started a buddy I train with has decided to fight and his fight will be this Saturday in Lloydminster, Alberta when Evolution Fighting Championship makes its debut.

He's been wanting to try his hand at MMA for a while. We currently came up in TKD/BJJ together and now train at a school that does BJJ, Muay Thai and MMA. However unlike myself he is training to be a fighter so is putting in extra time and has visited our school's owner's other school that they have a MMA fighting team. Having trained with this kid for 6 years, knowing his mentality, knowing how much energy and never quit attitude; I expect good things from him.

I really wonder if he will retire. As for a "super fight" between him and GSP; don't see it happening as George is not coming up in weight and I think would be too hard to drop another weight class. Would be a good fight though.

If GSP can get to Welterweight, I think Anderson probably could.
