Here’s the deal.
I’ve got the new Mike Fowler No Gi Made Easy DVD’s, and they’re pretty bodacious. If you remember, a while back I got the first version of the No Gi DVD’s, and I reviewed them here. Now I’ve got the first edition and the second edition of the DVD’s, which is one too many DVD sets to be cluttering my nightstand.
So I’ve got an extra DVD set floating around, waiting to be gifted away to you!

There will be two beginner MMA classes this summer, Moday 8:15-10:00 PM and Wednesday 8:15-10:00 PM. Summer semester starts next week, May 17.
The for credit listings for the classes are here and the non-credit are here.
Again, if you didn’t know, there are two halves to each semester for fitness classes. You have to sign up for both halves if you want classes all semester.
Above, Jon Favreau (Hogan) and Robert Downey Jr (Stark) chillout after working their boxing.
After watching Iron Man 2 on opening night, I’m pretty impressed. Nice to see that Hollywood has taken a break from destroying my childhood joys and let a decent comic book movie slip by, un-bastardized. No really Hollywood, thanks for sodomizing Spider Man 2 and 3, Dare Devil, Ghost Rider, Judge Dredd, 80% of the Batman movies, GI Joe, and the new Superman stuff. I’m glad you did that.
Anyway, during one scene Tony Stark is boxing with Hogan and slips in an elbow to the head from close range. Hogan says something like, “What the hell was that?!”, to which Tony mockingly replies, “It’s called mixed martial arts, and it’s been around for about three weeks.” Hogan spits back, “It’s called dirty boxing, and it’s been around a long time.” Of course, then Scarlet Johannsen is there for some logical cinematic reasons and ends up jumping in the ring, doing this crazy flying-leglock-on-head throw and finishes Hogan with an armbar.
At least that’s what I think happened. Scarlet’s hotness made that part a blurr.
Where were we? Aw, yes. The point, if I even have one, is that the components of MMA have been around a long time, but it’s nice to have a little media love, besides the Diaz brothers kicking a dude while he’s down. To sign off, I leave you with some pics of Robert Downey Jr practicing his martial art of Wing Chung on set.
