I just found out that one of my training partners got word earlier this month that he's headed for the mid-east for a year. He's a soldier (I'm pretty sure--if I'm wrong, let's presume that I said the correct branch moniker and offended no one in the process), and he's been training with us for a bit over a year. He took some time off to go to basic, then came back once he was back in town. Now, he is headed headlong into fire. He said before he left, though, that Klint's instruction has him progressing through the Army Combatives program faster than those around him. (Force sprawl, spin to the back, choke, repeat.)
I didn't expect these kinds of relationships out of jiu jitsu.
