it sits on the door frame, but the frame does not support your weight. instead the frame acts as a hinge so your weight is projected horizontally into the wall. its pretty neat how it works and if i wasnt an engineer i would have no idea (i guess 5 years of school + a masters degree werent wasted after all!). took me a minute to figure out and it still amazes me when i think about it.
sounds good. i was reading matt thortons blog and article on 'aliveness' .. sounds very cool i will PM you before I take the class..
Cool miz. Thanks for answering my questions. I like the ego-less approach. Not so concerned with the color of my belt but I do want to feel like i can keep getting challenged and that i am advancing my knowledge and skills as quickly as possible.

I am a blue belt in BJJ and am looking for a school that can take me to purple and has guys at higher...
you can find some good ideas and workouts here: little-to-no equipment needed - maybe the jungle-gym at your local park
to the OP: your situation and pics remind me of me when i first started. I was like "i look pretty good" when i actually looked pretty rediculous (cheap clothes way oversized). i am learning the folly of my ways and still have far to go. someone mentioned find your fit and get the basics. this is great advice. you dont really know what your style is so if you spend $$ on something because of the style you might regret it in a short amount of time because your...
