On Saturday, December 2, 2000 at NAGA, the North American Grappling Championships (a competitor of Grapplers Quest – http://Grapplers.com), I was dangerously spiked on my back and neck from an illegal slam at the hands of Randy “The Savage” Rowe. I had a tight triangle locked on during the first round of the North American Grappling Championships hosted by Kipp Kollar in Danbury, Commecticut. I found out later from Randy Rowe himself that it was an orchestrated “hit” on me from competing promoters, Kipp Kollar and Jamie Levine.
The emotional processing of something of this magnitude was extraordinary to deal with. I couldn’t imagine the level of evil was possible in the world. Rather than suing the promoter and embarrassing the sport, I internalized the injury, pain and damage and began to campaign for tournament promoters worldwide to BAN SLAMMING. Even NAGA followed by banning slamming after we publicly disclosed all that occurred. I’m confident that the campaign saved lives and prevented unnecessary suffering. Accidents can happen, it’s a contact sport, but grappling isn’t a striking sport and slamming can be a violent strike, just watch Quinton Rampage Jackson vs. Ricardo Arona in Pride.
Sadly, during the slam at the conspired hands of Randy Rowe, my T-9 and T-10 were immediately crushed and nearly pulverized when the weight of both our bodies folded my spine in half. The neurological shock was overwhelming and it was the first time in my life that I was knocked unconscious.
During a deep meditation yesterday, I relived the moment when I was being taken away on a stretcher with Randy Rowe videotaping me laughing and
Creating a quasi-highlight tape from the incident.
I remembered the X-Ray technician at the Danbury Hospital in Connecticut asking me to slide from the stretcher to the X-Ray table – and I couldn’t move. I had a 2 minute experience of being fully paralyzed from the neck down. I panicked and asked the technician to help me.
That was a scary day – it was a long journey back to realize that I needed to emotionally heal from that old injury.
The subconscious fear of “getting hurt again” was released, because I finally faced the emotional repressed memory to it’s fullest, forgave my perceived adversaries and move on with my life.
I nearly lost faith in humanity, but I didn’t, I never will. We can never lose faith in humanity, because there is more LOVE in the world than EVIL. We cannot let acts of evil turn us evil or cause us more suffering in life. If we hold onto anger, resentment and emotional pain, as the Dalai Lama
Says, “it’s like throwing a hot coal at your enemy – it’s YOU holding the coal who gets burnt.”
Remember, compassion and understanding leads to forgiveness, forgiveness releases and heals emotional scars and you become free of the pain of the past.
I competed randomly at Grapplers Quest in 2011 just to challenge myself.
I started my true physical healing process back at Yoga nearly 3 years ago and rediscovered my deep love and need for meditation 2 years ago and NOW…I’m finally back training martial arts THIS week – it’s been a LONG road to recovery, but I’m finally ready to step back on the mats, confidently, ready to have my ego and fears smashed and subconscious mind retrained. I forgot how much I loved training and how important it was to my life after being injured. I internalized the injury and it became an emotional scar. Every day, in every way, I’m getting better. The BEST time of my life was when I was teaching, training and living the martial way. I’m back on the path…the tide has turned, I’m coming back HOME!

Taking off the first few months of 2013 has allowed a lot of time of reflection about the past, present and future of Grappling and my overall life balance in general. I’m proudly doing 1-2 hours per day of meditation to help quiet my mind, relax my body and heal my mind and soul.
Spending time with my two children along with working on several Coaching clients and the 2013 Grapplers Quest season keeps me busy, but not overwhelmed or stressed.
During one of my meditation sessions, I focused on remembering my proudest professional moments in life and wanted to share a few with you…
One of my proudest accomplishments and life moments was when Women could finally stand alongside Men at the “ADCC World Championships in 2005”. I’m proud that the “Professional Female Grappling” legacy has been maintained since inception, but It didn’t come easy and no one ever told the full story how it all came to fruition against all odds.
I forgot how hard I struggled to petition and literally beg for Women to be involved in the first ever Abu Dhabi Combat Club World Championship Grappling Event in the United States in May 2005. I remember overhearing, “The Event could never be held in Abu Dhabi again once Women were invited.” I couldn’t believe the resistance, but I refused to take NO for an answer.
For two months, I battled with the ADCC committee, which was completely against allowing Women into the tournament until they finally approved the proposal for Women to Compete at ADCC, but sadly refused to pay the Female Purses. I refused to give up, accepted their challenge of, “Approved But We Won’t Pay for it” and immediately sprung into action to secure the Female Tournament Purses and sponsorship for the ADCC 2005 in Long Beach, California. I pushed hard, but in the early days, even $1,000 was a lot from a sponsor, so it was a long uphill battle.
Our one main sponsor who promised to cover ALL of the Women’s Purses, only to have them completely bail on us just three weeks before the competition, abandoning their investment into paying for the Women’s Cash Prizes, but we still didn’t give up.
Gilberto from Jiu Jitsu Pro Gear (http://JiuJitsuProGear.com) and I (Brian Cimins from Grapplers Quest) paid for the Women’s Division Purses out of pocket from retail sales from the event because the ladies deserved the same honor and opportunity. I couldn’t let this opportunity pass for Women in Grappling, I knew it’s significance.
I would do it over, again and again, because I’m so glad to see how far the sport has come since the dark ages. I never fully grasped how the “Women in ADCC” was actually a Gender Equality and Female Empowerment movement victory and was a turning point in the history of grappling.
Sometimes when you are pushing forward so hard, down in the trenches, you forget to look up once in a while and realize all of the amazing people you met along the way and how many challenging situations you faced – and the Women of Grappling deserved the same spotlight, it was TIME. Remembering this proud moment makes it all worth it for me.
Another crazy memory popped up while writing this, I remembered that Alicia Anthony and Gazzy Parman and many of the Top Female Athletes in the Sport put together a Plaque and Beautiful book of hand written “Thank You” cards, but the ADCC Committee blocked the presentation of the award at the 2005 World Championships, so instead, the ladies presented it to me at World Grappling Games 2005 hosted by http://OnTheMat.com – that award meant the World to me and still proudly hangs on my wall today.
Ultimately, I want to Thank ALL of the amazing WOMEN who helped be pioneers for Submission Grappling and Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and inspirations to many future generations to come.
Searching through old Grapplers Quest tapes, I came across footage from the first Professional Female No-Gi Grappling Tournament ever held in the World on Saturday, February 21, 2003 at Grapplers Quest, nearly two years before ADCC “approved” Women to compete alongside Men.
To celebrate the historic moment for the “First Female Professional Grappling Tournament” and commemorate this historic moment for eternally, I will be posting all of these previously lost matches for Free on YouTube at: http://LiveGrappling.com during this week sponsored by Super Body Care (http://SuperBodyCare.com), Onnit Supplements (http://StressExpo.com) and Meditation and Hypnosis training from http://HowToHealYourLife.com
Thank you for believing in Grapplers Quest, the Sport of Grappling and yourselves – we are evolving and will continue to push through the peaks and valleys of life, together as one.
On the horizon, the first women’s match headlines UFC 156 with Rhonda Rousey. The future is bright for men and women alike in Grappling, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and Mixed Martial Arts!
With Your Happiness and Success in Mind Always,

Please enjoy another “Positive Affirmation for Kids” with Logan John Cimins, 5-year-old son of Life Coach and Grapplers Quest founder, Brian Cimins
“Every Day in Every Way, I’m Getting Better”
– Logan Cimins inspired by American Monk, Burt Goldman
This great positive affirmation is inspired by one of my mentors, Burt Goldman, aka “The American Monk”. It can be used at ANY age, especially for people who’ve been sick or with some type of long term illness.
People who consistently wait for others to ask, “How are you doing?” or “How are you feeling?”, just to launch into a 30 minute conversation about how much pain they are in or how bad something hurts or aches. Complaining and reliving an “old injury” is just magnifying the problem to you and the listening party.
Complaining doesn’t allow you to focus on your progress, however big or small, you are just wallowing in your pain. I broke my back in a martial arts competition on December 2, 2000 and was nearly paralyzed. As a martial arts event promoter, I refused to let my scary story give a black eye to the sport. I set out to completely recreate my mental frame of mind to help others deal with challenging situations, something life always seems to deliver.
Even if you are in pain, please realize EVERYONE “suffers” in their own way. By responding with a more uplifting and inspirational response, even if you are in pain when the person asks, you will quickly accelerate your own healing, even if just in your mind – at least it’s a start. Start healing in your mind first and YOUR body will follow. You must believe in this, if you really want to live pain free.
Give it a try, start today and repeat this Affirmation and Mantra every day for 30 days, “Every Day in Every Way, I’m Getting Better”.
Until next time, BE positive 🙂
With your success and happiness in mind
Your Strategy Coach,
Brian J. Cimins
