For those who aren't aware, MMA in CA is now sanctioned by the California Amateur Mixed Martial Arts Association (www.camo-ma.org
One of my students, Alex Bondarenko, who has also had the privilege of training with Guro C, had his first fight on 8-22 at the Fight Factory in Canoga Park, CA.
He did managed to pull off what he has been training and won the fight in 33 seconds of round one.
He broke the guys nose on the ground and the fight was stopped by Sensei Cecil Peoples.http://s387.photobucket.com/albums/oo315/gab1ml/?action=view¤t=2010-08-21_20-23-50_759.mp4
Unfortunately the video doesn't play smoothly until it has completely loaded. and I apologize for the camera man's language.
Thank you Guro for everything you have given.
