I thought it would be nice for us to all get to know each other a little better! It's totally optional, of course, but also makes for some good conversation. To get the ball rolling, here's a bit about me:

Name - Andrea
BJJ practitioner since - August 2009
Current level - 2nd stripe white belt
Favorite position - butterfly guard
Least favorite position - toss-up between getting stuck in side control or mount, though I am getting better at holding them!
Favorite sweep - sumi gaeshi
Least favorite sweep - up-and-over, lumberjack
Favorite submission - Ezequiel choke, triangle
Least favorite submission - "gift wrap"
Training goals - 1. attend classes at least 4x a week, 2. enter Ontario Open in April, 3. improve core fitness

Hey all,

Nice to meet you. I am from Canada but I live in Japan. I am still pretty new to bjj. I look forward to chatting you you all.

BJJ practitioner since - June 2009
Current level - Blue Belt
Favorite choke - North South Choke
Favorite lock- Shoulder Lock from Guard
Favorite sweep - Helicopter Sweep
Favorite pass - Tozi Pass
BJJ Teachers I dig- Keith Owen, Marcelo Garcia, Marcus Soares, Stephan Kesting and Roy Dean.
Training goals - Attend class 3x a week. Have less focus on 'winning and losing' and more on growing. Tap before getting injured. Have fun.

Cheers

I thought I was alredy registered but I guess not.

well, better later than never. I am really busy so I will drop by when I think of it!!

Now that the new location is done, I can finally go back to my old hecktick schedule, of training and teaching.

First up is kids BJJ at 1730 hrs. Maybe I won't feel all old and broken when the adult class starts!!

For those that know me, you should have figured out who this is, and for those that don't...

My name is Charlie,

I have been training BJJ for a bit now (4,5,6 years...can't remember)
Okinawan Karate is my thing, and BJJ is there to make my ground better

Fav. choke, submission, is the one where the person gives up and quits
Fav. sweep is the one where the person ends up under me
Fav. position is the one where I'm in a positon of adavantage

leat fav. are all the ones that are opposite to the above listed

training goals are: Continuous training, work on weaknesses, become stronger because of it, make life miserable for others so that they can learn and get better.

PostSubject: About Me   Thu Aug 25, 2011 5:16 pm

Name - Kevin Kroft
Loving BJJ since - May 2009
Current level - White
Favourite position - Modified mount
Least favourite position - Bottom of half guard
Favourite sweep - Omoplata
Favourite submission - Ezekiel choke
Training goals - Fitness and competition
Why I love BJJ - Keeps me in excellent shape. The only other exercise I do without fail is a full-body weight routine once every two weeks. I love that BJJ has significant individual and team components. Feels like you're part of a family learning and growing together, while providing much individual satisfaction from sparring and competition.

Welcome, Nice to meet ya. I love the omoplata too m8 (even though mine needs lots of work). Mine is more of, what I've it heard called, a fail-o-plata. Cool
