I'm off to Portland, along with Greg Everett to get my fanny kicked by Matt Thornton and crew at Straight Blast Gym in Portland, OR. Please remember my smiles, my humor...and my terrible punctuation.
Peace Out!

See, see, Robb is behind some sort of conspiracy.

Pass the donuts and milk.

The thought of Robb getting there and wondering where Greg is, meanwhile Greg is at the gym cracked me up a little.

I had the opportunity to take part in a seminar Matt Thornton put on at the Hardcore Gym a couple of years back--it was one of the best I've ever been to. Matt has a wealth of knowledge, and is a great communicator.

Have a great weekend!

Cassidy-
I wish I could make that event in Berkley. We had scheduled for Matt to come to Chico in August...but Greg, John "the blender" vernon and a few other folks who were "supposed" to help start a core group fled Chico. So now its off to Portland!

Allison-
I try to avoid Seattle until after July 4th...when the sun finally comes out! I may be back up there giving a seminar on the Eastside in May or June. I'll let folks know ahead of time and we can all gt together.

Mike, Ron...you guys are in charge. The Kegerator is charged with CO2 and the Nitrous tanks just arrived. Please check Id's.

Allen- I would not be surprised if Greg bails and lets me go to my doom.

Hmmmmmm maybe I need to open a MMA gym in chico:D :eek:

One question: Is Nitrous paleo?
Pass the balloon!!

Ron,

Dude! Ouch!

No, really OUCH! Great weekend...I feel like I was mauled by a bear but it was awesome. Got to hang with Scotty Hagnas over some Indian food. Greg and I were great conversationalists as we went face down in the curry!

I can not recommend the Straight Blast Gym curriculum enough. If you get a chance to train with Matt or any of the coaches in the SBGI family do it.

They have a members forum with extensive video archives detailing technique and training concepts. They have a small membership fee that is worth every penny:

As to the questions: Yes, nitrous and balloons are paleo...at least when in Chico.

Scotty Hagnas

Glad to see that you survived. Spackle on some makeup, and you'll look good as new!

I was sure to sleep a couple of extra hours for you guys....

About that goat in the closet. . .
I can totally explain.



It was MOD.

Mike ODonnell
02-05-2007, 11:13 AM
Whooaaaaaaaa...Ummmmm....Yeah that was for the cookout........at least I didn't put a dress on the Duck.......and was the lipstick really necessary Ron?

Ron Nelson
02-05-2007, 04:13 PM
Lipstick on a duck does not make it any less "paleo." Yes, the duck was delicious.

The lipstick was for "presentation." It was Yael's idea.


Everyone goes under the bus.

Yael Grauer
02-05-2007, 04:17 PM
It was an emo duck!

Where did my CD go?!

Robb Wolf
02-05-2007, 04:25 PM
Wow...sorry I missed that cook-out.

One bright lining to the story of Robb getting the shite kicked out of him this weekend (as if that were not happy enough info) Greg and I will be in the SBG television commercial that will air during the IFL! While we were in there getting killed a camera crew wandered into the gym and started shooting video. One of the camera people said to Greg "hey, can you take this to a submission?" Greg responded something to the effect: Yea...give him like 5 seconds and I'll be tapping.

Scotty, set your DVR!

The key to my not-so-triumphant return comes to see you every tuesday and thursday morning, so lay it on thick brother. In the meantime me thinks I'll be paying through the nose for BJJ down here in Sacramento.

The Beckster is kicking ass! She is going to be an animal in no time. I hear Sacto is pricey for Jits...tough stuff!

For the uneducated among us (OK, me) what is IFL?

And what does it mean that Greg took something to a submission? I have an image of this guy rolling another guy on his back and tweaking (or biting) his ear as some suggest for dog training but that's a little disturbing ...

Submission = placing someone in a position in which they're compelled to submit or have a given joint/limb broken and/or severely damaged and/or be choked unconscious. And it was I in this case who was being submitted by a large golden gloves champ in the process of working out his 'aggression issues'.

But then I snuck out and beat up his little sister.

Allison Barns

Greg,
Thanks for the reply. I see I was not that far off on the submission thing :D
That looks - uh- painful.

hey Cassidy, are you by any chance going to the seminar in Reno on July 14th and 15th?

Robb Wolf
02-28-2007, 05:45 PM
Hey Everybody!
Nicki and I are off to Portland for Scotty's wedding. If i don't respond to email, I'm getting hammered with Scotty and crew! I think Greg is at the Ahhhnuuulds so I'm not sure how much he will be around. Any ordering or back issue...well, issues may take a few days.

MOD, Ron-
You guys are in charge.

Scott K., Shaf-
You guys write on MOD and Rons faces after they pass out. Then you are in charge. Lord of The Flies style.

I think Heather had a term when she worked at Pro Sports Club "Who is piggy this week..." gotta love being the lightening rod for bad feelings.

Congrats Scotty!

I have no idea but this song was ringing in my head:
Scotty Doesn't Know - From the film Euro Trip (If you haven't seen this movie, stop what your doing and go rent it!)_
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0Vyj1C8ogtE (http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=5312211256805114743)

I also find it pretty funny that the lead singer of the band in the movie is Matt Damon made up to look all hardcore.

Oh and for those that watch that clip, your welcome for getting that song stuck in your head for the next week.

I think Robb came home, saw it, cooked it and ate it.

Being the "fat kid" in school, I always hated that book. Also, I never pass out when I drink. At least not in a completely incoherent type of way.

Next, same rules as last time. $10 per cup; no sharing; two kegs, no light beer (don't ask); costume contest at 10:00 (dressing up like "Naked" Robb Wolf is strongly discouraged); if you pass out, make sure Shaf doesn't find you.

I'm with you Ron - I hated that book too. Guess it made me a little too nervous .....
