Looking forward to an explosive 2010

Well, we made it through the holidays and are into a new decade as the year 2010 gets underway. No doubt this will be an explosive year for Tupelo Brazilian Jiu Jitsu (TBJJ), Amory MMA and Paragon MMA in Corinth.

We already have two fighters getting ready to put on big shows in February. Terry Robinson (TBJJ), and Jonathan Burdine (Paragon), both have fights scheduled. Both are training hard and getting fired up to put on a great show for the fans.

There will be a lot going on in the coming months and we look forward to keeping you up to date as you check back with our blog.

Our hope for this year is that you will tell you friends about the blog, newsletter and the facebook page and that we can get more people on the path to a better life through good habits and training. Remember to comment often and send an email to Ken if you want us to cover any particular topic or fighter. He will be glad to help any way he can. Send emails to ken0021@yahoo.com.

Thanks and have a great 2010!
