    Tricia Sanders = Tricia Saunders? (Head coach of the womens Olympic Wrestling team?)

    Haha, I have a copy of vision quest.
    I really liked the movie Shadow Boxer. I wish the whole thing would’ve been about Lucia Rijker. They could’ve left out that girl at the beginning of the documentary.

    Surprisingly, I was inspired by the documentary “Choke”. I absolutely did not enjoy watching the event that it covered (Japanese Vale Tudo Open1995) and I grow tired of die-hard Rickson fans. I put off watching this documentary until I had a free video rental at the rental store, so I watched it. This video gave me a ton of respect for Rickson. I wish the documentary was more about him as a fighter/trainer/father/whatever …and had absolutely nothing to do with the event. My favorite part was watching him and his 5 year old son (Rockson?) playing Jiu Jitsu and his son was doing an armbar on him. I wish my father did stuff like that when I was little 🙂

    I was not inspired by the documentary The Smashing Machine. I am a fan of Mark Kerr’s but that documentary depressed me. Mark Kerr has gone through a lot…he gets props for having the courage to air it all publically. But I seriously doubt that he has shaken his “demons” since that footage was filmed. An aggrevating part of that film was when he was sitting in a doctor’s office waiting room and some older lady started chastizing him about fighting. He tried to make a point or two in support for MMA fighting, but he didn’t do very well. :-/ He was probably on pain killers at the time.

    Speaking of inspiration…how about those who crosstrain and kick ass!
