Lux Fixxins -  What makes him an authority to make such a claim? Phone Post

Adam Singer, as mmaguy noted, is the co-owner/head coach of Hardcore Gym along with his brother Rory. Most of yall probably remember Rory from his stint in the UFC. In addition to Rory, Adam also trained Forest Griffin, former UFC champ (although Forest had moved to Vegas by that point). But Adam was his trainer when he actually made it into the UFC. Adam is also the only trainer Brian Bowles has ever had. And Brian won the WEC 135 lb belt when it was the real world championship. Adam has trained a host of other high level fighters. He is also a Roberto Traven black belt. So...yeah I'd call him an authority.

I haven't read this book, but I have trained under Adam in the past and he is an EXCELLENT instructor. I'd imagine that anything he puts out is excellent. For $5...that's a steal.

Oh...and he's also a fellow UG'r...so support him!
Thank you Phone Post

Rory, Long time brother...

Adam, congrats on the book. Still waiting to hear from you though. You guys are way over due for a vist to Nor-Cal.

Rory...remember the "Bumble-Bee Man"?

Happy holidays to you both. My best to you and all those you hold dear.

Additionally everything they knew about designing book covers was wrong. Hire professionals, people.

Irishman84,

The title of each chapter is the myth. So the title is MMA Isn't For Women and then Adam goes on to detail why that's a myth. Hope that helps clear that up.

Just to add... The singers were apart of the tiny, elite, MMA authority in Georgia when I started training 11 years ago. That was long before there was money or fame to be had coaching I joind one of the better gym in the state and it was a converted tool shed. The Singers have done a wonderful job of surviving through the change by sharing fabulous knowledge and most importantly, investing in their students.

 

In other words, buy this damned book!

 

Adam, $5 isn't much but is there enough room to offer the book at a lower bulk rate for gym that may want to carry it?
