    I would say Medial Collateral Ligament strain or tear partial or otherwise. Or Anterior horn of the Medial meniscus. Check knee flexion at end AROM and PROM Muscle test the gracilis and Medial hamstring as a unit. May want to get an X-ray to rule out Tibial Plateau Fx. KC

    KC,

    Thanks for the information. Sounds more serious than I thought. I'll run it down.

    Ouch!!!!!!!!

    I just got back to reading the thread after being away for some time. I must admit it was a painful experience. I'm assuming most of your know why. It did open up a number of questions for me though?

    Is Goju originally from KY and an insurance salesman?

    Why is Goju so fascinated with attempting to discuss CMA when his time could be better spent studying his beloved MMA or karate?

    Did Goju pass his seventh grade Language Arts class?

    Hopefully, we will never discover the answers to these questions because enough is enough.

    I hope all is well with everyone who is sincere with the purpose of these forums.

    No to the first question..MK verified this and a first year student of the Colorado school is meeting him today for a friendly sparing session. This how Cujo can prove his skill to everybody.

    Yep, though he bears a striking resemblance to him, he's not. I really hope there's video of the meet up.

    Hey Everyone,

    Im back from my sparring match with Goju.

    First off, Goju seemed like a nice guy and so did his Uncle who came to film.

    We went straight to business and started pretty much right away.

    I went one three minute round with him.

    Hes definitely quick with his hands and feet, and has much better conditioning than me. By the end of the round I was pretty tired out and declined to go again ( i didnt want to tiredly drop my arms and get creamed )

    He got in a nice kick to the side of my head that I really would not have liked if he had been kicking full force. I think he also may have gotten me with a shot to the mouth. (i was bleeding but no swelling 'shrug') well we will see from the video. He definitely had control over me with his hands most of the round.

    I got in a couple short sweeps that I was unable to turn into anything, and I almost hit him with a spinning back fist but went too low and hit his shoulder. Overall I was pretty pleased with it. It was fun and I learned that if I really want to fight for an extended period of time I need to step up my conditioning.

    Goju definitely has some skills, If we had been really fighting I'm sure I would have gotten creamed. But I will say that Ive definitely sparred CSC BBs who were on par with him or better. These are people who have had at least as much experience with MA and I can recall being handled, tricked, and hit with strong attacks just like today.

    Goju is strong and fast and I think he probably could kick some ass on an amateur MMA circuit.

    I look forward to sparring him again and next time I can bring some of my more experienced friends.

    Hopefully the video will be posted soon and you gentlemen can make your own conclusions, but coming from me; Goju is no slouch hes definitely got some MA skill.

    As of this month I have 1 year of experience at CSC's in Colorado, mostly learning from master David and master Sharon. In high school I wrestled for like 2 years ( I wasnt that great).

    Glad it went well and glad Cujo was straight up...sounds like a good experience for both of you.....but we will wait to see his response to your post and how he presents his video.

    Hey FP,

    Kudos for getting out there and also to Goju for being a gentlman. While BQ is right that we'll have to see how he relates the story, this seems like the most gentlemanly internet challenge match I'm aware of. Thanks for being willing to go and to share.

    Go Ju may get more cordial and enlightening Sparring maches if he didnt come across as he did. I for one love a good hard sparring match and dont mind trying new things. I know I am just an old wannabe but even old wannabe's have a few tricks up their sleeves. KC

    I will add to my last post that Goju seems better than like 80% of people who Ive sparred at the CSC so far.

    There are definitely people with about his amount of experience that seemed as challenging as him.

    There are some who were better particularly several masters who Ive sparred. I can remember being knocked to the ground with no idea how it happened from some of these guys.

    But yea. again Goju def has skills

    I received a text to my e-mail from goju saying his computer crashed so it may be a while before we get his perspective on your match. Let's hope he speaks with levity and respect and not crowing about how he dominated the match and that's more proof that SD stinkes etc.

    Huge props for you to show up and meet someone for a friendly match. That takes a lot of spirit, but that's really what being a martial artist is about. Your teachers should be very proud of you.
