I'm On The Fightworks Podcast!!!




Wow, I was interviewed by Caleb for the Fightworks Podcast. You can listen to the show by downloading the mp3 track here (about 24 minutes in):

Or through your Google Reader embedded player.

I'm absolutely stoked to be on the show - one of my mini BJJ life's ambitions now fulfilled! The Fightworks Podcast has been transmitting quality shows for several years now and is one of the very best BJJ media outlets for learning about what's happening out there in the BJJ world.

Caleb was kind enough to offer me a slot on the show where I talk about the winners of the Crazy-Ass Design a Gi Contest. It gave me a chance to describe on air the range of gi designs that were submitted and to thank all those who helped put this project together. I hope I don't come across as too geeky with all my 'um's' and 'you know's' and the Skype recording wasn't the best quality, but hey, I'm not complaining, it was such a thrill to be on the show!

For those clicking on this blog for the first time searching for pictures of the gi designs, please visit the official Crazy-Ass blog to see the winning designs, plus lots of others.

Thanks to Caleb for the invite and thanks to everyone for taking part in the contest. As I say in my interview, watch out for next year where I will announce more awesome gi-based contests.

Great job Seymour.


Also, you sound like 6ft tall and at least 90Kg.

Woohoo! Congratulations on getting Fightworks! I loved all the gi designs. I think you guys should do something like this again!!

Meerkatsu said...

Yeah! thanks guys. It was fun to beon the show and I had so much more I wanted to say but I deviated from my crib notes and then lost track so made it up as I went along, which meant I forgot to mention a few people.
Maybe I'll get to go on again one day.

Already gave you props on FB, but I thought I'd mention it on here too, so... great job!

Sounded more well-spoken than I remember, for some reason (not that you're some gruff cockney normally, of course ;p).

Also cool that you managed to slip in Liam, Matt AND Scramble. No coughing required! ;D

Sooooooooo cool! :) :) :) :)

Props on a great idea and smooth execution, Seymour! I'm excited to see what's in the books for next year.
