Some memories

HB Punk w/ the 100 hitters

Hawk defending the Gracie Academy saying he would bet on Ryron in a no-time limits match against anyone and explaining how the Machados beat the GA in a crosstown showdown

Scotty and/or Gumby with the crazy stories from Brazil

SReiter with the visit and friendly roll with Brian M.   No one liked him not even Paul Viele who was looking for him.

Threads about the socal scene - Cleber / Fabio Santos / Roy Harris / Joe M

Remember the guy with screen name that started with something like 'jjj' that was dropping juicy insider stories near the end of NHB? Jiu Jitsu police probably got him and shut down the forum. I'd love to see those threads archived somewhere.

That was Randy Bloom.  Probably still surfing it up in San Clemente.  i did go to one of the free BJJ camps he had down there with guest instructors.  I think it might have been the same day that Eddie beat Royler the 1st time.

Val references the forum and several members in her book. 

"Training Wheels: How a Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Road Trip Jump-Started My Search for a Fulfilling Life."

Highly recommend the book. It's awesome.

Some of the forum members she references in the book are Da Crippler, Superstall, The Vanilla Gorilla, Twerp, Wen, Goatfury, Clinzy, The Infamous Grip, Dr. Kimura, Joemoplata, and Letmbleed.

I was on nhbgear and mostly lurked on itg. I’m pretty sure I was HBM on both. Those forums helped make Jiu Jitsu viable in the early desert years.  I used to drive 40 minutes each way to go to HBJJ. 15 years later, there are two schools on the same block as my business. At least 4 schools in Burbank.

I was on NHBgear.  I’m 90% sure my screen name there was “exjudoka” (my first mma.tv name too btw) but it may have been “stephankesting”

Yeah, it's very good. Did I mention that documentary where lots of NHBGear members pop up? Probably, but I'll link it again anyway:

It's in four parts (featuring people like Dave Jacobs, Andrew goatfury Smith, Val Worthington, Chrissy Linzy, etc). So, other three sections:

You were so nice about that challenge match with Sreiter. Also gotta give Sreiter credit for showing up.
