Hey guys,

39/m/NJ, newly training BJJ and MMA. I have a few years of Judo experience at Clyde Worthen's Tech Judo in North Bergen, and as much as I'm enjoying BJJ and MMA, Judo may always be my first love.

I've also spent quite a few years of my life in Isshin-ryu, TKD, Miyama Ryu, Yoshitsune/Hakko ryu/Daito ryu. As much as I love the modern method of sparring, rolling, and randori... I often reminisce of the days when the hardest dudes in town were the locals in Isshin ryu/Japanese Jujutsu, etc, and were trying to organize local events, and prove their toughness. The late 80's were a wondrous time for martial arts!

I guess I'm an all around martial arts lover.
