Alder’s Vancouver Seminar Canceled This Weekend

July 24th, 2009 In News | 17 Comments

Due to bureaucratic red tape, the mounties are going to deny my access into their country. It seems to be a paperwork issue, that, if I had known would have been a problem, I would have easily handled prior to wasting my time flying up here and sitting in customs for hours and hours. It would seem they’re very strict here on letting people into the country. I watched them deny access to a whole slew of people. My sincere apologies to everybody that was going to come out and support. I’ll be back soon.

I did however get a chance to hang out with Dan and Nabil from 10th Planet Vancouver for a few hours. I was granted a “day pass.” We grabbed some delicious food and then went and checked out the 10th Planet Vancouver Gym. It’s a great facility.

From what I saw, Vancouver is a lovely city. I can’t wait to come back. The women are beautiful up here. From the customs officers, to the waitresses at the restaurant, even the girl that served us Egg Mcmuffins at McDonalds this morning was cute. It must be something in the water or clean air.

This week is the 3rd stop on my non stop summer of rock tour. I should see if Steve from Melee/10th Planet Gear can hook a seminar tour T-shirt up. Or maybe I think I’m waaaaay cooler than I am. Either way, I still have a seminar. =)

Electric Chair Submission in Competition.

“Chris Jones who train at Island MMA and 10th Planet Victoria (Sub 101) gets the tap via the electric chair. He was DQed for this however because the organizers were unsure what it was and said it was a crotch ripper. This was in the 187 advanced too where almost everything was legal-except 10th Planet it seems.”

The Douche Bag is done from the spider web position. It is designed to break the grip in order to get the arm bar. It basically requires you to place your foot on your partners neck/face and extend. Hence the name, The Douche Bag.
