We did staggering. L/R but it was only controlled by the inital jumper if the right side sped up then it could catch the left side easily. Ya trust me the regular army doesnt' need any control over thier decent. I was FORTUNATE enough i say that real lightly to spend my last year in the Army at ever...

Yeah i thought that spinning dude was funny as hell too. That is why you get twist in your shit huh? I must have had a pretty good exit becuase in 40 jumps i only had twists 2 times. It's pretty cool also to see the JM struggle when those dudes get all bunched up too. I would have got smacked on the...

Hey did Dave Nielson become Rip Cadre?

The funny thing is that most of the people that still know me still call me Happy. People proabably know me better as Happy than my real name. So weird how that shit works out.

Even as i was being taught the Gracie style i had the same questions. The ground fighting seemed very rediculas to me also. As i began to ponder on it more. I started to wonder why they would teach us this. The reasons i came up with where there is no fair fighting in combat. It's not like we are go...

I think that is the main reason to keep us from tangleing up. I also think speed of decent is another big reason. Don't the square chutes have a slower rate of decent. Sorry but if i'm jumping into combat the last thing i wanna be is defenseless for an extended period of time.
