    Hi Brian:

    My name is Neil Antin and I am the president of TheFightChannel.com. TFC.com is in the final design and engineering phases and will be launching a full time streaming HD web TV network in June 2008.
    TheFightChannel.com will be powered by Content Delivery Network Ooyala.com.

    TFC.com will air live Pay-Per-View, taped and library footage of boxing, wrestling, martial arts and MMA fighting events, seminars and competitions. We’ll also produce original programming and air movies, documentaries and TV shows that have fighting themes and our 24/7 live news desk will report on the fighting world at large.

    I’d love to talk with you about airing any content you may have on TheFightChannel.com and in developing a working relationship with us to co-produce live martial arts events for our Members Only PPV network…

    Thanks and I look forward to talking with you soon.

    Best regards,
    Neil Antin

    Just wanted to drop in a say hello. I’m not sure if we ever met but I feel like we have.

    The Blog looks great (also familiar :)-I do appreciate your mindset and approach to martial arts.

    Good training and I hope we have a chance to meet and discuss things martial in the future.

    Hey Doug,

    We have been in the same room a few times. (NJ Tai Kai, Hombu Dojo) However we have not really been introduced.

    Thanks for saying the Blog looks great. I appreciate your Blog as well. As a matter of fact it probably is the best Blog on the internet. 🙂

    One of these times when you are back in the States we will have to have you over to Michigan for a seminar.

    Take care and I to look forward to getting together to discuss all things martial in the future.

    Your friend in Budo,

    Brian R. VanCise

    I have been training in Alma with Gary for two weeks now and can honestly say this is the best training I have ever received. Scott Sober has also been incredibly helpfull with working with me. Like your website says, I do not feel like another number in class. Looking forward to seeing you at the grappeling seminar in November. Thank you.

    Hey Patrick,

    That is great and I am really happy that you are enjoying training with Gary and Scott. Trust me you have a great opportunity to learn a lot from them that will help you in your chosen profession and life in general. See you soon!

  11. I think other site proprietors should take this web site as an model, very clean and great user genial style and design, let alone the content. You’re an expert in this topic!

  12. This design is incredible! You definitely know how to keep a
    reader entertained. Between your wit and your videos, I was almost moved to start my own blog (well, almost…HaHa!) Wonderful job.
    I really loved what you had to say, and more than that, how you presented it.
    Too cool!

  13. Michael Lupo, I emailed you but it did not go through. You can contact Guru Eric Kruk here: http://www.baringinsakti-silat.com/ or on facebook.
