Duane really has done wonders for TAM. They all have great wrestling, and generally need some striking work. I wouldn't be surprised at all is some go with Bang.

Doubt it. He's taken them far but there are plenty of kickboxers they could bring in. I'd really like them to bring in ghkoan saki. Phone Post 3.0

Bang made TJ a champ. Who would stay with the mediocre when they could go and be part of the elite? War Bang!!

I don't really know all the issues behind Bang's departure. I believe his plans were to move home and start his own gym I at some point so the Alpha Male thing was always temporary, however him and him alone was the reason for the success of that gym this past year or so. Soon as he started working with those midgets they went from striking line Uriah, to striking like Bas Rutten. They all need to work that out because it's best for both parties to stay together.

I hear Kenny Monday's available. Bang should teach out to him and together they build a new top tier pro team.

Dillishaw should stick with Bang IMO. Phone Post 3.0

I have always thought part of the problem with Faber and Ludwig was Faber seeing how good TJ was getting and Ludwig I say absolutely TJ will leave

I remember reading in some interviews that Bang was not focusing on building a pro fight team. That life wasn't the one he wanted to build.

He wants to own a martial arts academy and train some fighters.

TJ said he'll cross train with Bang. Alpha Male for camps; Bang's at other times. And he'll pay to have Bang come in for his camps.

They need to pay Bang, guy was making less than $70 thousand a year coaching their team to an incredible streak of wins. I know he wanted to move and start a gym but those thoughts could of been calmed for a while if he knew his family was going to be taken care of. Phone Post

TJ probably benefited the most from Bang. The way he moves now is completely different. At first he was imitating Faber quite a bit, and it only took him so far, but now he has a style all his own. Phone Post 3.0

Alpha Male should just merge with Duane's gym. They're a perfect fit for one another. It would suck to see TJ's potential limited because of outside issues...

Mark Hominick would be an ideal replacement, he was brought up under Shawn Tompkins who knew the Bas system well, and I hear Mark is a really good coach. Phone Post 3.0

In the presser (iirc) TJ said he'd be staying with TAM, but he would definitely go train with Bang on occasion when he isn't in a camp. He also said he would get Ludwig to come to him when he has a camp if possible. Phone Post 3.0

I'd imagine there was some sort of non-compete agreement signed beforehand. Phone Post
