Forrest Gimp - Ryan Hall's letter to the Martial Arts community:

http://livingthemartialarts.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/01/Open-Letter-to-the-Martial-Arts-Community-2.pdf

Wow.  I saved the pdf and it is heartening to see this, the Gracie video, Tom Callos, and others come forward and show what martial arts is really about.

 

Let's keep the balance on the side of right.  There's a lot of it out there and I'm proud of and grateful for that.

 

TTT and keep fighting the good fight.

And keep fighting what's wrong.  Never stop fighting what's wrong.

 

That's what it's all about.

ttt for Marcos Avellan. It was your NON cult mentality that led you and Dave to be innovators in grappling- the 2 of you did NOT think like everyone else. I don't think you would have posted something like what you did on FB before becoming affiliated with Irvin.

tomcallos - A thank you to the people in/on this forum for your nice words and support. It's a weird, weird time for the martial arts world --and due to all of this, a weird time for our family. What a sad, messed up, disheartening, slap-in-the-face for the martial arts community. What a dishonorable record of shame. Helio Gracie, Meada, and Kano must be spinning in their graves. I too, in the shadow of this disgrace, find myself questioning whether I have wasted my time pursuing the study of the martial arts as a path to any sort of clarity. When these are our "Masters," what does it say about the martial arts? Ugh.

You sound a bit down Tom.

But don't worry! I have just the thing for you!

Black Belt Pyschology!

Yes taught by the fully non-credited not-degree having not-a-psychologist Marcos Avellon.

http://blackbeltpsychology.com/

Im not posting that to impress you... but to impress upon you importance of... some shit I dont know i got through about 2 minutes of the video.

This stuff is great for chuckle.

Cant wait for Marcos to make another thread so it backfire so spectacularly like the last one.

Great video from Rener and Ryron, and excellent read from Ryan Hall.

It is nice to see some big dogs in the BJJ community speak about all this.

Good to keep this thread alive.

Respect to Tom Callos, Ryan Hall, Rener.

As for LI, screw that man and what he stands for, and anyone who supports him. He is a black eye to the BJJ, grappling and MMA community. Phone Post 3.0

The thing that saddens me the most is how twisted and distorted this has all gotten from the ideology and virtue of a true martial artist. Phone Post 3.0
