Today we launched many new changes for the team! We've renamed and rebranded the team as Militia Fight Academy - or Team Militia. We felt with the new ownership, new coaches, and new momentum of the gym, it was time to create our own identity and lose the "Extreme" moniker from the gym's old ways and ownership.

Interesting... I hadn't heard about this. I remember that Extreme had some health issues, but I don't know if they were all that serious.

Its almost like he just dropped of the face of the earth. He was real hardcore when it came to his gym. Seems odd that he would just give it up.

He moved to Florida. I don't know about his health, but saw him recently and he looked good. He was very into Muay Thai, but didn't seem interested in MMA. But a lot of the students wanted to do MMA. Wonder if that played a part?

I'm remembering some kinda health/injury issue from years ago, I think... the more I think of it, I think it was an injury.

Yeah his back was shot. He was doing all sorts of things to help his back out. He moved to FL. Probably retired. Good for him though. He did have a good academy though. Some real tough guys.
