I think the Phoenix, Vegas and Ca. mma/bjj scene are a little hard to match "peaches".

BJ PENN still remains the one that whipped my ass best. I don't think anyone else will ever make me feel as clueless as he did.

Phil who does your Muay Thai there? I know your credintials say you are a Muay Thai Boxing instructor do you do all the Muay Thai classes? Do you have seperate classes or is everything MMA based?

thanks for any help you can give me, I am moving back to Austin next Friday and want to get training lined up before I get there.

Hey Migel how are you buddy? Lets hang soon.

Hey there GAME DOG. I dont really care if me cutting & pasting my non updated resume does much for you. I bet my place would make you appreciate that choking people is a favorite past time. I founded an academy full of humble hard working technical team mates that help each other meet their goals. We have had the fortune of having 7 black belts on our mats this month alone we have had people that have owned the UFC title belt, and a couple very accomplished & known UFC fighters, many Bellator, Strike Force & WEC fighters along with their accomplished training partners for their camps. We have had a World Champ of wrestling and a 5x World Champ of Jiu-Jitsu all this month. Oh, Rhalan Gracie is in town as we speak... Hes starting to gear it up for the worlds. Last year he placed 3rd. Looks to do better this year & has never been more focused.

Texas Thai, I have Rodney Soliz, Brandon Hilts, Chis Yeager (trained @ chute boxe Japan) myself and many fighters are in there working pads. Some VERY VERY skilled stand up fighters in the facility that have kicked people in the head & knocked em out in the UFC, and people that have punched people hard enough to detach some retinas. Its the best kept secret about our facility. Several People that have been to Thai land train at our place.
