I havent seen one since the 90's. Maybe in spite of all the roids that are being used, a lot of people have evolved past the dojo storm. i know some teams still send out spies to join other clubs and assess thier skill level while learning some new stuff, but has anybody here seen a full-on 'chinese connection'- style dojo storm lately?

Yoji Anjoh may not have been one of the best fighters to ever grace this sport, but he's got one of the biggest set of balls for storming Rickson Gracie's dojo. Sure he ended up getting his ass kicked by Rickson, but how many people have the balls to show up at somebody's dojo and do what he did? Not many. Also, after Anjoh got his ass kicked, he didn't wine or cry, he came back a day or two later and shook Rickson's hand. Also, props to Rickson for not calling the police or calling a lawyer. If somebody tried this shit today I could see the police getting called and lawsuits happening.


I miss the days of dojo storming.

Yeah, dojo storming was back when men were men.

 

Could you imagine storming a dojo and screaming 'Let me bang bro, just let me bang!' and then crying?

 

I like to hope the Dojo's answer would not be 'But I do let you bang bro!' and to hug you deeply, with no shirts on.

 

Somewhere along the line, something went horribly wrong.

No dojo stroming needed nowadays, just ask when the good pros are sparring.

Or just roll with their top guys if you question their skills. Dojo storms are less popular becuase people are willing to do more open sparring/rolling, no storming needed.

i have never heard of a dojo storm with a happy ending.
the closest thing i have seen to a dojo storm recently is about eight mma players chasing away thieves that were rummaging through cars in the parking lot. until the thieves started shooting. the mma blokes stormed back into the dojo, me too.

I think you're the reason I bought the 'leglocks 101, because any idiot can throw a punch' T-shirt.

 

Aren't you?

Gannon knows. The Kimbo challenge was one of my favorite times of this website. I was glued to the UG waiting for live updates. Phone Post

I think people realize how much of a clusterfuck the legal process would be after said storm and it just does not seem worth it.

Would also be curious if occasional brawls and riots happen at grappling tourneys (all types)

I'd say there's not much full blown dojo storming going on, but there are still dickheads who come into gyms asking to try a class and go apeshit.

Why anyone would do this is beyond me. If dojo storming is how you spend your time you clearly don't have the Internet, a flat screen and regular pussy. Phone Post
