New t-shirt designs!

Edit: I just found out from Spreadshirt that it’s 20% off until March 30, so get on with it!



I’ve made some Pride-inspired t-shirts, with some mock Engrish on the back and some fancy Japanese writing because us gaijin like that kind of stuff. You can buy them here.

The reason I don’t do much colour is 1) because I am colour defective, but also because I like to keep it simple. There will be some colour versions of these shirts coming soon, as well as these designs available on coloured shirts, but that takes longer as you have to create a vector graphic and have it manually checked by the staff at Spreadshirt.

But don’t hold out! I’m keeping the price as low as possible on these shirts so they are a pretty good deal.


Stop! Don’t move! Before they move the fighters back to the centre…


Judge! Judge! Judge! And then FIGHT!


Do you hear me Mr. Takada? I said no holdings! More action!


With a joy! Kakutougi daisuki! (I love combat sports!)


Didn’t make it to training tonight, which really sucked. Anyway, no use dwelling on my eternal cold symptoms.

I did have a good day though… here’s why.

First I went shopping, and bought some scales to weigh myself. I perused the shops and came across some classic Engrish and decided to share it with you.


I can’t tell you how long I’ve waited to own a t-shirt that said



BOMB Everybody loves that I spend it peacefully peacefully. I dislike that I fight. OK, I mend a new friend today! NEW WEAK FRIEND GOOD!


Fuck, that’s superb.


Cincinnati Peoples Meat.

The best tasting people, or so I hear.

Another good thing about Japan? All you can eat yakiniku (BBQ meat.) Drool.




And the best thing about the day. Sitting back with a Starbucks Tall Double Soy Latte with Honey (I’m not gay, just lactose intolerant) in a combined Starbucks and bookstore where they not only let you read all the magazines for free, they encourage it with comfy chairs and the like. I flick through all the Japanese MMA magazines just looking at the wacky pictures of fighters. Want to see what was in the magazines? Tough shit. I’ll save that surprise for when you make the trip out here. Let’s just say Nogueira doesn’t look quite as good as Takada in a white loincloth.
