Who is this? I imagine a BJJ stylists, but I have not heard the name.


My Professor. Taught me everything I know and introduced me to the world of BJJ literally. Traveled all over with him. To this day I call him like a father to ask advice as he started Gracies jiu jitsu over 30 years ago. Great man.

Can't go wrong putting Bruce at the top of this list.

The Gracies as a whole need props too for again revolutionizing the arts.

Norris is a personal fav of mine for his early influence on my desire to study (not to mention that Walker is guilty pleasure of mine ).


Walker!?!?!?!, cmon your better than that

My instructors- Life would have been different without them.

Bruce Lee- Do not allow limitations of style.

Niccolo Machiavelli- The man just understood human nature.

The Spartans- Discipline and no nonsense.

The Vikings- Imagine being shieldbashed and attacked with an ax by a crazy guy who lives on a boat. Scary.

Royce Gracie- A reality check in the 90s.

Ninja Turtles- awesomeness.

Sho'nuff- Not only is he the master, he's also the shogun of Harlem.

Jean Claude Van Damme, not only because i love his movies but because he proved how good a fighter he is with his full contact fights under his real name Van Varenburg, only loss he really had was a TKO if i remember rightly, the rest were wins with predominantly first round knockouts. Plus, he's a really nice guy and my inspiration for hours of pain aquiring the side splits.

This is interesting. I have never heard this about Van Damme. I always was under the impression that he never competed in anything like full contact. Can you point me to this information?



Just to clarify the JCVD point. Yes he was a successful fighter. In fact he has a full contact fight coming up in 2011 against a muai thai fighter. Apparently he recently had a minor heart attack while filming but he has denied it so not really sure what to make of it. He is said to have been doing alot of cardio for his fight. I think his opponent is like 10yrs younger but I hope he will do well im very much a fan.

That would be interesting to see. Van Damme is no spring chicken any more.

To me my list is both Long and Short

God - need I add why, Amen
My Father, he gave so much to us growing up. I hope I can be as good a father to my children as he was to me
My Grandad, because he was a boxer and knocked out Eamon Andrews Irish Champ, but it wasn't a Championship bout.
My Uncle because he claims to be something he isn't (a 4th Dan Jujitsu Champ) and I don't want to be like him
My Levie, she gave me love and accepted me for who I am
My best Mate and assistant instructor Alan, who without him Black Tiger Karate wouldn't exist
My students, who's loyalty is amazing.
Oyama Sosai- Founder of Kyokushin
Ashihara Kancho - Founder of Ashihara Karate and Direct student of Oyama Sosai and teacher of Ninomiya Kancho, who founded Enshin
