Anyone else see this?

It was a 2 page spread about Elvis and the UFC and was actually a decent read because it wasn't bagging out MMA but actually trying to break down some of the stigmas associated with the sport.

I read it at work, should have brought it home and scanned it. It was in last wednesday or thursdays paper.

There's several clubs in Canberra.

EPIC BJJ - Runs out of Elite Physique in Phillip
Elements - Runs out of Elements Fitness in Mitchell

Phoenix - Out of Phoenix Gym in Mitchell
Roots - Out of the ANU Gym

EPIC has the highest ranked guys with one brown belt, 3 purple belts and 4-5 blue belts.

The first two are Machado gyms (EPIC and Elements), the 3rd is taught by a former EPIC guy who (I think) is under Spinks now. The last is a Roots gym under Paulo Guimares.

I'm biased, but I legitimately think you'll learn the best BJJ at EPIC with the other 3 all relatively even.

I know it is very awesome because the standard of journalism in that paper is the highest in the country. Well done Elvis. You deserve it.  

The message of appreciation I sent to the Canberra Times was:

"Awesome article on MMA and Elvis Sinosic last Thursday. Nice to see media cover the most popular and fast growing sport in the world without any petty concern with ad hoc readership's objection to barabaric violence. Also nice to see something so well researched and factual."

I also think this serious coverage marks a point of change in things for the MMA community. People don't really cope with change :) Which is probably why I'm the only on here doing back-flips of appreciation.

Go for it :) 

They used some of my favourite shots. Wish they'd used V for vistory. That's the best shot of all time.

Bloody editor misspelling, "mixed martial arts," and, "jiu jitsu," consistently... Doesn't he know what a Proper Noun is?

You know when women get fat they try everything to shift as they age it turns out to be red meat fat that vapourises as soon as you cut it out and switch to tofu, though I would through a lot of fish in there rather then eating exclusively tofu because I went anemic for the frist time in my life. But the unmovable weight dropped off.
