I have been doing a lot of BJJ. My ground skills are definitely my
weakest area, but I'm making decent improvements.
I have a black-belt in Kempo Karate. I'm a two-time undefeated
middleweight champion in bare-knuckle karate (back in '97 - '98).
I've done some kickboxing. In short, I'm very comfortable with the
stand-up fighting aspects of the game. I still train in Muay Thai,
and some boxing, but I have been spending most of my time training
BJJ, wrestling, and trying to leverage my stand-up striking skills for
So far I've developed good defensive jiujitsu skills. I can keep a
good JJ guy from submitting me (most of the time), but I still rely
heavily on strikes to finish the fight on my feet or on the ground.
I'll try for an armbar or a triangle from time-to-time, but when the
going gets tough, I usually just resort to driving a fist or elbow
down into the guys face.
