    It has Chuck & Randy on the cover.

    Go get it! Daynin’s article on the get-together she had for female black belts is in there, along with some no gi and gi lessons from Felicia Oh and Cindy Omatsu (no gi – triangle choke and open guard pass; gi – transition from guard to rear mount and guard pass to side mount).

    Great article Daynin! Good to see so much female coverage in there.

    Bodyguard Magazine.

    That’s clever marketing, as I don’t think there is a massive, erm, literate, bodygaurd market out there… 😉

    Actually, they’re going to be changing their name to TapOut Magazine. From the sounds of it, they’ve evolved so much since they first started that “BodyGuard” doesn’t fit their audience anymore.

    From Robert Pittman:

    After careful consideration and due diligence we have decided to join forces with TapOut to re-brand the name of Bodyguard Magazine to “TapOut Magazine”.

    In March of 2005 at the MAIA Show in Vegas we were honored to have the TapOut crew work our booth. As we spent time together, we saw the huge buzz they created just by standing with you. After all, how could you miss them? As time went by, we realized we have outgrown the name Bodyguard in an effort to meet the needs of our MMA (mixed martial arts) loyal readers.

    We toyed with names as Fight Fan, MMA Magazine, MMA Health and Fitness and others, but the marketing efforts to re-launch an already successful magazine would be very costly. TapOut, the word, is synonymous with MMA. The TapOut crew is a marketing machine, they live it. Their dedication to the sport is endless, giving up their free time to aid promoters and connect with fans in ways outside the norm. Since the beginning, they have worked hard to build the sport, literally from the ground up. They have become ambassadors of the sport.

    For the fans that subscribe and buy our magazine, MMA will become a larger part of the format. With the help of TapOut we will find new teachers of the sport, like up and coming superstars. We will find more interesting celebrities to interview and special MMA behind-the-scenes articles that no one will have.

    For the advertisers, the goal is simple, grow the number of readers. With TapOut promoting and marketing “TapOut Magazine”, subscriptions will sky rocket and newsstand sales will explode. Your ad will be seen. TapOut will be e-mail blasting to all their current customers, who will then buy the magazine with YOUR AD IN IT. TapOut and Bodyguard have some awesome deals coming up that will be featuring “TapOut Magazine” over the airways. These venues will be seen by millions and so will “TapOut Magazine”. This is a win-win for everyone involved.

    Our main goal for “TapOut Magazine” is to be the world’s largest, most read, and most credible MMA Magazine in the world and this would complete the circle. The content will not change but evolve as we proceed through this new venture. We have made a commitment to keeping the magazine fun, clean, and dynamic and this will not change.

    This will be Huge for everyone involved. If you are not a part of this NOW is the time…..

    To all of you I say Thank You for 1 _ years of Bodyguard Magazine and its setting of records on ad sales, subscriptions, and newsstand sales. We at Bodyguard intend on beating those records with our new magazine re-brand “TapOut Magazine”.

    Have a great holiday and a wonderful New Year!

    Robert Pittman

    Publisher of the New – TapOut Magazine

    Check out her website keeps articles online.

    Wow, quite a few black belts out of the Leka/Machado school and seemingly most of the gals with black belts come from the west coast except for DC Maxwell.
