Kissed by God is back on the calendar. https://www.tetongravity.com/films/andy-irons-kissed-by-god/tour

Who wants to go with me and Marianne on 6/24 at 9PM? C'Mon Y'all!

Oh and there is a lot of good buried in this thread. Goodfish, thank you for the link (https://beachgrit.com/2018/05/kissed-by-god/) "Where were you when Andy died? Is it significant enough to stand out?"

My response (Ted 2.0's early days): The night of Andy's death I was a hospital inpatient, 65 days into my recovery from a nearly fatal car wreck. The accident was my fault and nobody else was injured, thank God. The first week and a half (or so) I was in the ICU with halo brace, tracheostomy, and stomach tube, tied down and on heavy meds that prevented me from remembering anything from ~1 hour before the wreck until they pulled me off meds two weeks after. I will never forget that sense of shock finding out that Andy died just after my near miss; Andy never made it to 33 years old and here I was in a halo with a stomach tube hanging out having barely survived into my fifth month of my 33rd year.

I'm so glad be here - enjoying each and every day. Life is good. Cheers to remembering Philip Andrew Irons and spending some quality time together at La Paloma!

Thanks for the heads up on the dates! Got my ticket booked for Encinitas on the 26th at 6:30. Yew!

I don't think Karate is worthless, I have one in Shorin Ryu. Nothing is worthless. Mcgreggor has a Karate background and fights in a karate style stance.
and a belt is only for rank in your own dojo. A belt won't help you in real life, nobody cares or asks.
One schools blue belt may be more advanced than anothers black belt...... you have a black belt, you know this.



I got a black belt in karate 25 years ago. I havent practiced the art for over 20. First time I got in the ring with a Thai boxer and got leg kicked I realized that my karate background wasnt going to help me. smile



There is a really wide variance in Karate. I'd go so far as to say 90% of what is out there is fraudulent. If you'd trained all that time in say a good Kyokushin dojo that leg kick wouldn't have been an issue for you at all. I once had a guy who was reputedly a New York golden gloves thing attempt to take my head off in casual training. One leg kick ended it. His hands were better than mine at that distance, but he hadn't a clue re any other distance. So obviously that's where you take them. Kick a TKD guy in the leg and he'll look at you like you just stabbed his puppy dog. (no doubt there are exceptions to that, that was just my experience)

Back to "the fight" I believe Mick's father had been a pro boxer and I believe Mick had a couple of fights under his belt. One knockout and one on points as I remember. Swinging the surfboard made Andy look like a bitch. Of course, I'm not sure if Mick ever went back to the North Shore after that.


For your entertainment... what the old school game of tournament "tag" used to look like. It don't look like this anymore.

It was legit full contact Kempo.

Still lacking in so many ways at that time....

We used to sublet from a Kempo school in the late seventies. IMHO, it was very low power, and overly complicated. Inter style sparring tended to not end well for them. But that was a different time and place. I have no idea who you were training with.

Even on land he let his surfing do his talking.
