A WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP THANK YOU


 

Hey Everybody,

After winning the 2005 World Championships and after coming off a three-year retirement I must say that I didn’t do it by myself.  I wanted to take a moment to thank everyone who helped this dream become a reality. 

First I would like to thank GOD, without him nothing would be possible.  I would like to thank my wife and my parents for their belief in me.  I would like to thank the entire Team Lloyd Irvin family for their support.  I would like to thank my instructor Leo Dalla for training with me even when he was injured, I would like to thank all of Leo Dalla’s students for helping me prepare for this event when I came to train with Dalla.  I would like to thank Rhadi Ferguson for giving me the wonderful gift of Judo and grip fighting.  I would like to thank Ervin Brandon for being my gripping partner in preparation for this tournament.  I would like to thank Mike Moses for coming in outside of their normal schedule to help me train.   I would like to thank Ryan Villagram for always asking me if I’m going to ever compete again and I would like to thank all of my children students who go on the mat and give it their all.  I would like to thank all of the wonderful parents I have at LIMAA.  I would like to thank Master Donnie and Tom Zurita for believing in me even more than I did.  I would like to thank Nyjah Easton for the email the morning of my tournament.  I would like to thank Jeff Ruth and Ryan Hall for their emails of support.  I would like to thank everyone who loves Jiu Jitsu as much as I do, just for loving Jiu Jitsu.  I would like to thank all of the competitors who had the guts to put it on the line in Brazil with me. I want to thank Ta Ta for taking care or everything in Brazil for me and to Guigo for the support at the tournament. I would also like to thank Fabio Gurgel for the kind words at the event that he gave to me.  I would also like to thank David Jacobs for helping me warm up for my matches.  And finally I would like to thank Mike Fowler, if it wasn’t for Mike I would’ve never had competed in the 2005 World Championships.

PS.  Please forgive me if I left anyone specific out.  There are so many people that helped me along the way I’m bound to forget someone.

Regards,

Lloyd Irvin
