Favorite thing about Vision MMA: The family. I've only been training here for about 4 months now but I've met so many cool people. Everyone is willing to help one another and really push each other. You gotta be a certain type of cool/crazy to get best up everyday!
Best memory at Vision MMA: I've had a few, but I'd say my first day coming in, not realizing it was a sparring day... First person I sparred was Tyger. Talk about eye opening.
Little known fact about you: I am a lefty by nature, but fight orthodox because I just always learned that way. It makes switching a little easier, though.
Best thing about training: Leaving it all on the mat, and walking out of there feeling accomplished and ready for a good meal!
Worst thing about training: Having to stop periodically because I'm an old man now. :) Person who has had the most impact on your training: My first TKD instructor has been a part of my life for almost 20 years now, and was a very important figure in my formative years. Basically a father to me as I grew up.
At Vision it's gotta be either Jeremy or Tyger. Matt said I had to say him, and that's not far from the truth anyway!
Who would you like to thank (if anyone): Clare for always sticking by me even through my crazy antics, Tyger for being an inspiration daily, Matt for welcoming us immediately through the door, Jeremy for being patient as we fumble around in BJJ, Scott for all his knowledge... And everyone we train with as well.
Why would you recommend Vision MMA to a prospective student over other gyms? The people. The trainers. The atmosphere. Everyone's work ethic. And the HEAT.
