Stevie is a true desperado: he effectively blocked me from the forum and now comments on something I posted earlier!

I registered there for one reason, to be able to read Members Only section. Not that it turned out to be any more useful than the rest of it. I just get suckered in by the answers some poor sods get from the glorious Elite Master Instructors and their followers. Like the guy who can barely hold 24 kg above the head. "Lift lighter kettlebell if 24 kg is too heavy!!!!!" The same is you suggest that some aspects of GS technique is useful for everyone training for strength. "That's not what Strong First teaches!"

Fuck it. Mr. Freides particularly. He takes wankery to new heights.

Hey everyone!

So I just had a look at the USWC 2020 Kyokushin championships results and noticed in the Mens senior division at 1st place was a Pavel Tsatsouline!
Well, as much as a lot of his stuff makes me cringe this is legit.

Much respect. And double respect for not publicizing it.

As I read it his finishes were:
2016-- 3rd (out of three placings listed)
2019-- 1st (out of two placings listed)
2020-- 1st (out of two placings listed)

Not sure that means only two people entered in his category in 2019-2020, but props for him for entering, competing, and winning. And if it wasn't the most competitive tournament, extra props for him not trying to sell books by claiming it was.
