hello Jake:

hmmm..."Jake"... boston area... Tony Blauer/PDR coach.... i've met someone ages ago... year 2000 iirc, at a Phil Dunlap seminar.... Jake S. went rolled with a catchwrestler, Jerron S., and was outweighed by at least 100 lbs. lost touch with him as he used to post on the UG forums and i've not been as active there.

i wonder are you him?

regardless... thank you for the post. IIRC, i have Tony Blauer's recommended reading list archived to my site and you beat me to it as i was going to repost some of the reco's from my archives.

thank you!

very truly yours in the MA,

Hey SG,

Yeah, that's me. I had actually blanked on getting tossed around by Jerron S., though I remember the seminar pretty well.

I haven't been terribly active over on the UG lately either. It got a little...repetitive.

Anyway, I stumbled across your blog somehow, and figured I'd say hi, and give you some more reading lists to post.

Keep in touch!
