Big thanks to Joe Rogan and Robin Black for another amazing JRE episode. In December, when I was just starting to do striking analysis, I sent a breakdown to Joe - "Ernesto Hoost: The Perfect Low-Kick.

 
 
As you can see, he was incredibly supportive and it led me to start producing video breakdowns, with the first being the Ernesto Hoost low-kick. 
 
About 15 videos later, a UGer named TazStyles shared my work here, and Kirik generously gave me an amazing platform to share the analyses. 
 
More recently, I've had the honor to collaborate with Robin Black, a man whose great underdog story you have to hear. He faced improbable odd and was criticized as an outsider, but years of hard work and persistence turned it all around. Now he's living a dream. It's great folks like Robin that entered an uncharted territory and paved the road with excellence, endless passion, and enthusism.   
 
Yesterday, I got a shout-out from them both, and I'm still floating. Really appreciate the generosity and it truly means alot. Also big thanks to the UG & Kirik for all the support! I wouldn't be here without all this altruism, and now I'm more driven for continual improvement than I've ever been. 
 
Do check out the amazing episode,

Thanks for the kind words Lawrence.

Hey, all we did was talk about work we liked. You did the work man!

This little niche within a niche analysis that guys like you and Jack are exploring is really exciting and I'm proud to be a part of it.

Like I was telling Joe I'm also really glad that guys like Jack and you and I are thrilled by each others' work and supportive of each other.

Keeo up the awesome work man, keep doing what you love.

Thanks for the collaboration on our last piece and thanks for being someone to bounce ideas back and forth with. Lookin forward to working again lots more.

Dude, seriously, man I had fun with Joe. Glad I could represent for our little niche.

Robin I love all the breakdowns you do, the Condit one really opened my eyes to how high level you have to be to respond to your opponents movements and attacks. I really enjoyed the podcast, particularly interested in the science of the mind helping you achieve set goals. Thanks for a great podcast! Phone Post 3.0

Mind is blown. I mean, Kirik was an owner of a karate school... AND he's stayed in Britain. He also writes beautifully... and who else has more historical knowledge of MMA than Kirik? Jack's slogan is the "Fight Historian" after all...

Alright, conspiracy theorizing means it's probably a good time to sleep.
