    I was just curious if you guys practiced any sort of martial arts. If you do put what you practice, where you train, and how long you have been doing it or what belt you've got.
    I've just gotten into brazilian jiu jitsu- white belt

    I train in mixed martial arts. There are a number of different facets that I train in, jiu jitsu and muay thai being my main focuses right now. I have been doing this seriously for a year now, but dabbling for four years.

    I train with a friend of mine at UGA, and we both go over to the Hardcore Gym.

    I took it and made it to a green or red I can't remember but I do know I used to own black belts in sparring and testing for the next belt at this gym. Lone Wolf, I think me and you would put up a good fight.

    And to answer your other question, I have not yet competed in any sanctioned fights, although I am planning to schedule one for next spring. I am trying to get up to welterweight so I can compete there instead of 160.

    You could fight at 145 and tear it up dude. Are you actually on the UGA team?

    No, UGA does not have an official MMA team, although I have been toying with the idea of starting a club team. I am just not sure how many other schools would be willing to start teams so that we could have matches.

    I used to wrestle at 145, but I would like to see what I could do by adding another ten pounds of muscle rather than losing 15. If I get completely destroyed, which is probably pretty likely, then I will fight at 145, but I want to see what I can do at 170 first.

    They do have a BJJ team though right? Phoenix Martial Arts has MMA (it's where I train), in Buford. They don't have a cage, but they do train there.

    I am pretty sure we do have a club jiu jitsu team, but I don't think we have an actual varsity team. I don't train with them though. I might have to make a trip to your gym one day and see about sparring with people.

    I take it you like where you train a lot.

    I am definitely going to come check it out sometime. And if you ever want a sparring partner, hit me up lol. I am not sure how big you are, but as I am not a big guy, I typically end up training with people who are bigger than me.

    Well I have just started, and it's all about technique. Let me know when you want to come up there. The guys there are pretty cool and very helpful. The instructor studied under Pedro Sauer.

    Truer words have rarely been spoken, technique truly is everything. And that is very impressive to have such an experienced teacher. I wish you luck with your training, and I will let you know when I get the chance to make it over there.

    Phoenix Martial Arts will be having an "Open Mat" in about a month. It will be on a Sunday and is open for BJJ only. (I believe) http://www.phoenixmartialsystems.com/ give them a call if you'd like to see if you can come.
