Here are some old school pics. I have more to come even older. These pics were all taken between 8 and 12 years ago. Tai Kai was doing MMA and BJJ while most local schools were still doing traditional martial arts. All local schools have jumped on the Bandwagon. Now everyone does BJJ and MMA. Tai Kai has a strong history and was the original BJJ/MMA school in Central New York.
Tai Kai’a Andy Curringa in his first MMA fight against Joe Lauzon back in 2001. No he did not win by choke but won a decision
