I've been "away" for a while and recently found myself transplanted in the Cedar Rapids area.I used to compete a lot but then other things took over my life.I'm looking to start training again and I need a positive constructive crew to workout with in the area.I have seen a couple of places mentionned on here but I'm looking to explore all opportunities.However it must be in the Cedar Rapids area as A) I don't have a driver's license and B) I'm currently restricted to Linn County.Thanks,Clayton Miller

 Clayton, good to hear from you.  Are you looking for MMA or BJJ? Vahalla/mainstream has a good team with the Koch brothers and others.  I know that Hawkeye BJJ has a branch that you can find off of the Hawkeye Bjj website (go to blogs) and you are always welcome to come up to Waterloo and train.

 And also congrats on your pre 01 date on the profile.  I have no idea how you did that.

Mr.Miller, My name is Demian, and myself and a few others operate the Valhalla Combat Club in cedar rapids. We are the home of team Harddrive, and have a pretty decent facility with about 15 - 20 pro's and a handfull of ametures that fight out of our club. We've got Keoni and Eric Koch , Devon Christiansen and Dave Sherzer as coaches. We're open from 4-8 Mon - Fri and on the weekend depending on participation. Team Harddrive practice is from 6-8 Mon, Wed, Thur. Dues are $55 to sign up, and then $30 a month; we also offer a day rate of $5 a visit. We're located on the corner of 5th ave and 12th St. South East in CR. give me a call if you have any questions or want better directions

Cool man, we look foreward to having you. We've got 155ers and under falling out of our pockets, but are a bit short on the heavier weights. Your size and experience will be a welcome addition... hope to see you sooner, rather than later

Whats up y'all... No point in starting a new thread; no one reads this shit anyway... i got a chance to referee the Nick Marin show last night (Sun. 5/24). Was a very interesting experience. There's nothing quite like being inches away from someone and actually seeing their will get broken... witnessing the moment of surrender... did you know if someone bleeds enough, you can actually smell it in the air? fuckin' awesome... if any one saw the fights i would appreciate any constructive critique... this is not an opening for the guys i train with to blast me... but good luck stopping them... bring it...
