I look at it like this: When guys talk of how bad they are I ask the following:
1, Who trained you?
2. How many times have you competed?
3. What’s your record? I mean in a sanctioned contest? Not sparring or at your gym.
If they start dribbling excuses out their mouth then I simply tell them you are not a grappler, wrestler etc you are simply practicing.
I know what I’m talking about, here is an article from 1999 about my Coach, our School and a little about me.
