His name is Wil Whitlow, great guy, love him to death.
unfortunately, a couple of my coaches have participated and werent too successful. It's really set up to favor people who have experience in point-fighting. kinda lame.
Hes never done point fighting but he hits/kicks really fucking hard.
Hes got a really good kickboxing record.
I'm excited for him
He had a small falling out with my head trainer so he doesn't teach at Memphis BJJ anymore though
my coach just got back from japan monday night. he won his fight and got picked up to fight in K1.... ....he got beat pretty bad in WCL. The fact that they make the fighters throw non stop attacks at eachother more or less nullifies any talent you bring to the fight.
I hope he does well
explain. I'm not sure what you mean...
There is no strategy, you can't pick your opponent apart, you are forced by the rule set to just flurry constantly.
I'll try to locate it after its shown on Sunday. I'm sure he will post a copy of it.
is this chuck norris' thing?
i'm intrigued...get back to work
Last time I was up at Memphis I got tackled by a large black man, only to discover it was Will. His brother has scary MT too.
I miss him, I hate he doesn't teach at memphis bjj anymore.
We went together to Atlanta for some fights we were in. We got stuck in 5pm Atlanta traffic. Dead stand still. The Peaty Pablo helicopter song came on. He rolled down my window, got half out of the car and sat on my door and started singing it while spinning his shirt around.
It was epic.
exactly. It caters much more to the TKD guys
Yeah, but I see him up there quite a bit, actually. He's allowed up there, I just don't think the ever plan to pay him again.
Oh thats good
I figured he was just about banned.
my old trainer is on it also
anthony njokuani on the oklahoma team
the rules really favor point style fighting though
They want a fast paced fight but you are not forced to flurry. You can't really pick your opponent apart cause you only have 2 rounds but you don't have to to nuts tho they do like when you do.
shit everyones on the wcl
