Freedom of Speech is gone. Please Download this image and post it everywhere you possibly can.

On Monday, September 16, I found and posted to Facebook, an instant classic and potentially VIRAL political satire drawing of Russian President, Vladimir Putin submitting Barack Hussein Obama II, President of the United States with an ARMBAR. The arm bar is a famous move from Judo, Sambo, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu (BJJ), Submission Grappling and Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) made famous by The Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC).

The post stated, “Politics aside, Click LIKE if you think it’s awesome an ARMBAR from Grappling/MMA was used in a major political satire campaign”. For some reason, Facebook removed the image with 687 likes and nearly 100 comments in less than 20 minutes from all my accounts without warning or explanation. It is a clear example of censorship and infringes on our First Amendment rights as Americans.

We cannot be afraid to express our views or share the political views of talented artists or Satirical cartoonists. If we simply want PEACE, we must be allowed to voice out opposition to war. I
Didn’t have a “horse in this race”, I’m not the artist, but when I see our rights being stripped from us as Americans, I must stand up and call it like it is.

Please don’t be afraid of tyranny, our founding fathers protected our rights and many died for those rights. If we don’t say anything, if we sit quietly while our rights are slowly stripped away, if we blindly follow war mongering leaders we do Not believe in, we become lemmings, sheep being lead to slaughter without any concern for our safety or future.

Yes, I don’t want World War 3, yes, I
Thought it was awesome that Putin was Armbarring President Barack Hussein Obama because Submissions and Armbars have crossed over into mainstream and YES, I firmly believe in the United States Constitution and pray every day for our government and websites like Google, Yahoo, Bing, Facebook, Twitter and all the rest to uphold those same principles and laws for the American people.

Most people I talk to know their fantasy football team stats better than the most important document in our nations history, so I’m posting our Bill of Rights below for ALL to read.

Equality for Women in Competition in Grappling, Jiu Jitsu and MMA Plus The REAL History of Female Pro Divisions in ADCC and Grapplers Quest By Brian Cimins

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… 

5076652294_433fae794a_z

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.

kyra adcc-podiumOur 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,

Brian J. Cimins,

Founder of Grapplers Quest

CHALLENGE SUPERFIGHT – Pablo Popovitch vs. Davi Ramos – Florida – Grapplers Quest hosted by Brian Cimins – AUG 20 in Coral Springs, FL

HOLY SUPERFIGHT!!! Pablo Popovitch called me the day after Davi Ramos submitted Joao Assis and Jeff Monson at the 20th Grapplers Quest West Championships back in July. Pablo wanted to grapple Davi Ramos, Andre Galvao, Bill Cooper or anyone else on the World Class level to challenge him – DAVI RAMOS accepted.

Davi Ramos is a Brazilian Jiu Jitsu black belt under Master Cesar Guimaraes (AKA “Casquinha”) from the Top Brother academy, though he also fights for the prestigious Atos team. Already being named as one of the top BJJ competitors in his native Brazil, Davi Ramos solidified his career at an international level after submitting 6 of his 7 opponents at the Grapplers Quest competition (Las Vegas edition) in 2011, forcing the tap on big names such as Jeff Monson and Joao Assis.
