TODDLER PARENTS: Check out ‘Debbie and Friends’ on YouTube and LIVE February 11 in Long Island- Logan Loves Them!

My 4-year-old son, Logan John actually found Debbie all by himself while searching in YouTube for Goldilocks (he googled it himself, true story) and the rest is history – we’re a Debbie and Friends family, my 2-year-old daughter Kaylee loves it to.

Sometimes, they’ll gently drift off to sleep after watching musical videos and songs from Debbie and Friends. Debbie Cavalier’s is a wonderful performer based out of Massachusetts, who really has a gift in entertaining children. I bet you she gets a major television show on DISNEY or NICKOLODEAN in 2012, she’s that good and unique, a breath of fresh air for parents like us. She and her funny and adorable cartoons and animations enchanted by 4-year-old son and I’m proud to say that he and I both know nearly all of her songs by heart. I bet one day you’ll see Logan (and us) in one of her Music videos live in concert :-).

here’s one of his favorites:

Logan Signs my MacBook Pro and APPLE Fixes it FREE of Charge – Best Customer Service EVER by Brian Cimins


Logan John woke up early today, school was cancelled for holiday and school meetings. I woke up at 7:18am to find marker everywhere Logan was this morning plus his nails and toes covered in Pink nail polish — ughh…but I kept my cool and didn’t yell. I fully controlled my emotions and frustration and just asked him why he did it. He replied, “Today was arts and crafts day at school, but there was no school. I wanted to color on the iPad, but it was dead. I’m sorry Dadda.”

So, I controlled my thoughts, I controlled my anger – I didn’t flip out. I tried to clean it with “Lens Wipes”, nothing. I just called Apple and scheduled a service drop-off. I had posted this to Facebook early in the morning. When I arrived and brought out the computer to show what Logan’s “John Hancock” on my 21″ laptop screen. One of the technicians mentioned that someone in corporate customer service was forwarded my story from Facebook and they wanted to show us APPLE is listening to their loyal customers.

It was amazing – I went from about to pay an $800 screen replacement (and just live with the Permanent marker on the outer shell) to paying $0 because APPLE is a very special company who will forever be a powerhouse and successful business with exemplary customer service coupled with high quality products. I will strive to be like APPLE always and will forever remember this day for the funny story with Logan and how it all played out. Try not to sweat the small stuff – even if I had to purchase a brand new $2,700 laptop replacement, at the end of my life, the amount of money I saved or spent during my life will not matter. It’s the special loving relationship we develop together as father and son. I broke my Dad’s $3,000 laptop screen at 20 years old and he barely yelled at me and I remember how much it cost to repair ($900). I tried to emulate my Dad – thank you father.

Logan, I forgive and love you, it’s a funny story now for us to share for many years.

Apple is amazing. Period.

With Love Always,


My Angel, Kaylee Paige Cimins – Born May 28, 2009 by Brian Cimins, Proud Daddy

In the darkest days, my little Angel, Kaylee Paige can take it all away with a smile or laugh or even just a loving stare like the one above. Having a son has been amazing as well, but my relationship with Kaylee is something very special, I’m sure she’ll even help take care of me one day, if necessary, like all amazing daughters try to do. I hope to stay healthy and be alive and well to walk you down the aisle one day – NO RUSH…AT ALL :-), but, I want you to know that our song since you were born is Frank Sinatra’s “You Make Me Feel So Young”.

Love you baby girl – can’t wait until one day you read this and know how much of my heart you fill

A Fight Spirit – Tribute to September 11, 2001 – Thoughts by Brian Cimins

This Sunday marks the 10th anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks. I remember running a Grapplers Quest on Saturday, September 23, 2011 at City College of New York with the horizon still smoking, the grappling community came together. My old academy, Machado New York City with Marcos Santos was gone, just 2 blocks from World Trade. Many people told me to cancel it, but I knew it was important for the grappling community. It was a sad day, as we found out that we lost many of our fellow Grapplers, friends, family and the heros of civil services – and I’m glad we did it. People should always know that expressing love in times of sadness is sometimes the greatest form of healing. God bless you all

Directed by Kahleem Poole-Tejada (director of the full-length documentary “New York MMA”) and produced by Matthew Kaplowitz (Editor-in-Chief of in association with Ranger Up, the film takes viewers around a tour of downtown Manhattan and provides a glimpse inside several of New York City’s top MMA gyms. 

It features many NY-based fighters, such as Renzo Gracie, Chris Weidman, Pete “Drago” Sell, and Vitor “Shaolin” Ribeiro, as well as Stephen Koepfer of NY Combat Sambo, Mark Yehia of “Elite Plus MMA,” Rob Constance of “The Renzo Gracie Academy” and President of the “Ultimate Absolute” grappling tournament, and Emilio Novoa, President of ADCC North America. Also appearing is UFC middleweight fighter Jorge Rivera, as well as Strikeforce middleweight Tim Kennedy, who adds the voices of members of the U.S. Armed Forces to this emotional piece.

Locate to Donate – Where have all the donation boxes gone? By Brian Cimins

Wayne, NJ — Today, I was driving around trying to find a clothes donation box in my hometown of Wayne, New Jersey. I stopped by all of the spots I remembered as a kid, nothing.

A little took my son to Burger king to play on the slides and Space Ship jungle gym (not for food, I get a coffee, lol), then I stopped at a local bagel place to pick up Sunday breakfast for the family. No donation cans anywhere, just EMPTY tip jars, it made me sad.

At the worst point in my financial life, I focused on charity and giving to others and my life improved in every way. When I became too focused on the “goal” or just improving the bottom line, nothing changed. Help others, use your talents for something other than profit, it’ll make you feel better about yourself and you’ll leave the world a better place.


Grappling Autism Launches: In-House Academy Tournament Fundraising Program to Help Desperate Families in Need

My nephew, Jonathan Cimins was born on April 16, 2003 as a seemingly healthy, beautiful blue eyed baby boy. At 18 months old, soon after his booster vaccination, his speech rapidly declined, his behaviors started becoming repetitive, spinning for hours, jumping for hours, making strange noises and even seriously injuring himself without fear, we were lost. Sadly, he’s never been able to say, “Daddy, I love you,” but his father, Paul Cimins NEVER gave up Hope. UPDATE: On May 6, 2013, Jonathan said “Daddy” – check out:

Cimins’ mastery in the Culinary Arts as a graduate of Culinary Institute of America and consulatations with DAN Doctors and Nutritional Experts propelled him to create the world renonwn, “Autism Spectrum Diet”, voted “best tasting gluten free and cassein free recipes”. He sought out international Autism experts and doctors, herbalists, phychiatrists, alternative biomedical treatments and most importantly, family crisis support groups throughout the World. The family support radio show, Hope Saves The Day is free on iTunes here:

There was very little information available, no health insurance support and no guidance or help for families who learned their child or children had Autism. There were no treatments or hope for many of these families. The Divorce rate amongst parents of Autistic Children is 75%. With one in 91 boys being diagnosed with Autism, now is more important than ever to help raise funds to directly support families. Other Autism organizations boast “awareness” campaigns, but lack in the true families that need their help the most.

Paul Cimins and the entire family is on a QUEST to help cure and treat Autism and help the families it can potentially devastate.

Grappling Autism was founded by Brian Cimins in 2007 to help raise funds for families with AutismRadio, a 5013c charitable organization you directly helps these families, most desperately in need of support, both emotionally and biomedically to help recover their child. Cimins is the President and Founder of Grapplers Quest currently donates $1 from every competitor worldwide directly to AutismRadio and with annual donations exceeding $10,000+ annually, still just helps ONE family per year, that’s how expensive Autism can be to treat properly.

Autism Families desperately need our support.
