Meet the men who "Mixed" the martial arts a decade before the UFC! <div><br />What do an NFL star, a United States Secret Service Agent, Sylvester Stallone's bodyguard, and Muhammad Ali's sparring partner all have in common? They were all characters cast in America's original "anything goes" reality fighting drama, an "open call" that gave birth to a new sport--MMA. <div><br />Long before the Octagon was in vogue or Royce Gracie made his pay-per-view debut; decades before the UFC became a household brand and while the likes of Dana White were still in elementary school; two martial artists, Bill Viola and Frank Caliguri, set out to prove once and for all who the world's greatest fighter was by creating a radical new "sport" in 1979. </div><div><br />Tough Guys reveals the clandestine plot to subvert the "first" mixed martial arts revolution in American history, one poised to challenge boxing as the king of combat sports. Confounded by a freak accident (death in the ring) and widespread corruption, a massive struggle ensued over money, power, and respect between boxing's gentry and an upstart MMA company from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. CV (Caliguri and Viola) Productions ignited a bitter turf war with the Pennsylvania State Athletic Commission that sparked a spectacular David and Goliath battle for leverage. The legendary story, buried by rhetoric for years, casts a wide net reeling in everyone from politicians to mobsters, all with ulterior motives; all with eyes on a billion dollar blueprint. From boxing's "Holy Territory," the home of Rocky Balboa, to a bizarre connection with the Supreme Court that lead to the first legal precedent for MMA--ever, this is the ultimate inside look.<br /></div><div>Tough Guys is a testosterone-laced whirlwind tale of "what might have been" told by the trailblazers who fought for it. Relive the epic adventure of the "Tough Guys" later known as Super Fighters (the first mixed martial arts league, long before it was labeled MMA). Thirty years before the UFC gained a mainstream audience, KDKA-TV dubbed CV's new sport, "Organized, Legalized, Street fighting" while the Philadelphia Journal proclaimed, "No holds barred as Superfighters take over." Take a journey back in time to the "Iron City" and meet the fighters, the foes, and the visionaries who created the modern sport of MMA.<br /></div></div>

Every sport for kids has some form of organized competition. Most parents are quite familiar with the details and nature of such competitions for mainstream team sports, such as football, baseball and soccer. For individual competitive sports associated with martial arts, and especially Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu(BJJ), the details and nature of the competition are less familiar if not arcane. <br /> <br />In this manual, Professor Vieira explains what BJJ parents need to know and consider for their kids to get the most out of BJJ competitions. Professor Vieira sets forth his time-tested and successful competition philosophy and offers many pointers for parents. These include: How parents and their child need to approach tournament training, which tournaments to attend and why, what losing a match really means, and how to handle the myriad challenging situations that inevitably arise when kids compete in a combative one-on-one sport.

Tony Robinson-Smith, his wife Nadya, and ten Bhutanese college students set out to run 578 kilometres (360 miles) across the Kingdom of Bhutan in the Himalayas. Joined by a stray dog, they slogged over five mountain passes, bathed in ice-clogged streams, ate over log fires, and stopped at every store, restaurant, guesthouse, and dzong to raise money for the Tarayana Foundation. The “Tara-thon” was the first endeavour of its kind and gave 350 village children the chance to go to school. En route, the Long Distance Dozen met a Buddhist lama, a royal prince, a Tibetan renegade, and a matriarch who told them the secret to long life. On arrival in Thimphu, they were decorated by Her Majesty the Queen. In this contemplative memoir, Tony describes Bhutan in rich detail at a transformative period in its history and reflects on tradition, belief, modernization, and happiness.
