have fun watching! :-)

Coming up next: the ability to mark guys you have fought before! This is one of the features that have been requested by many people.
Also, for the self-control impaired there will be a blocking feature. I don't expect it to be much used, I just want cyber feuds from other sites from spilling over to allfighters. Once you block a user, he won't be able to message you anymore.
And now for some statistics: In case you haven't noticed, we have recently passed 500 members and delivered over 16 thousand messages. The blogs are a little underused: there are only 50 blog entries at the time of writing.

I recently spent a weekend up in London which is quite a long way for me, but it did give me the chance to get to two of Iain's wrestling sessions in his purpose built wrestling clubhouse. The first session was an erotic 'rip and strip' session on the Saturday evening. I arrived to find the lights turned low and as my eyes adjusted to the gloom I became aware of a few naked bodies standing around, but as yet no action had started. Feeling keen, I slipped out of my cloths and challenged one the naked bodies to a fight. I hadnt wrestled for a while and it felt good to be in skin to skin combat again, soon getting slippery with sweat as we each struggled to find possibilities for submission holds. Once we got started, others paired up and there were soon several of us at it. Then we started on the rip and strip, something that I had never done before. Not wanting to sacrifice either of the two swim trunks I posess, I had brought along a few pairs of old underpants that had seen better days. As Ian had suggested, I had snipped the waistbands in a few places to give the opposition a fair chance, modern underpants are otherwise almost indestructable. I soon found that rip and strip can become quite competitive, the objective differs from the submission/pin wrestling, but when it gets competitive it still demands concentration and effort to block your oponent from grabbing your pants while at the same time trying to get a grip on his. I also challenged a couple of guys to a round of rip and strip as a 2 onto 1 match, suggesting they see how quickly they could get my pants down and right off over my feet. They were both at least my size, so I didnt expect to last long, but actually it took them a lot longer than I expected. I hadn't wrestled 2 onto 1 before, although I had often thought it would be fun to try. I soon found that with 2 guys attacking you, you are only going to be wrestling defensively, and with all your efforts being concentrated on defence you may well hold out longer than you might expect, at least thats how I found it, from that one experience. If I might say so, my oponents had not planed their attack very well. Eventually they got me down with one of them pinning me on my back and more or less controling my arms. The other was trying to get my pants off, but because I was on my back it was easy for me to make it really difficult for him by kicking with my legs and bucking about. If they has forced me down on my chest, then if necessary twisted my arms behind my back, I think I would have been pretty helpless and those pants off in no time - just the way the body bends in the middle. I did find that whole Saturday evening session good fun and certainly erotic at times, although it did not develop into the full blown orgy one might have expected, another time who knows. The Sunday session that weekend, was quite different, being a proper training session plus the chance to do a few competitive rounds. Apart from Iain the instructor, only me and one other turned up, that other being M. who I have wrestled before a few times and who generaly gives me a good scrap. It is a pity that Iain's meetings do not always get the attendence that Iain would like to see, but with just two of us we did get some intensive tuition. Without going into details, (wouldnt want to give away too many secrets) Iain started by explaining three ways to counter a side headlock. As a novice, I thought that once you are in a side headlock your head just goes wherever your oponent wants it to go, which is usually down on the mat. I now know that it doesnt have to be that way. Then we looked at a few other holds and countermeasures and M. and I practiced them on each other. Finally M and I did a couple of long and exhausting rounds of subs/pins and we got one sub each, a nice result. I can recommend Ian's meetings, well worth a try if you are within range of SE London, he has a yahoo group called SpeedoWrestlers.
It's been a while since I drew anything. I guess I was busy with other stuff. I'm a little rusty.
Here's a sketch I did tonight.
Looks like I should study anatomy more...
I'm delighted to announce that the French version of AllFighters is completed. This is all thanks to the hard work of our member, ladron fr! All this international cooperation is giving me a warm feeling... :)

There are three settings:
Later on (probably next week, when I get around to working on the site some more) you will have the option of attaching one of your photos to your messages. This way will be able to share private photos with members without having to post them on your profile.

This is a sad post, so please excuse me in advance. If you're looking for something more enlightening, try Wrestler4life's blog instead.
This morning (European timezone) I logged on to youtube to find that my account was "permanently disabled". I got no communication from youtube as to why this happened, I only have a few working theories:
Now I can't be sure which of these factors caused my profile to be "permanently disabled". Apparently youtube doesn't have any sort of appeals process, or if there is, I could not find it. It never ever occurred to me that this could happen: none of my videos were even "flagged" (youtube's term for questionable content) before.
It's a shame really: yesterday I had somewhere near 1500 subscribers, 40+ videos, over 150,000 profile views and 200+ friends. The combined viewer count of all my videos was over half a million. I'm a little upset about losing all this, but again if it can be taken away so easily, maybe I never really had it.
My youtube videos were an excellent marketing tool for the site. In fact, that was the only "real" marketing I ever did, seeing as how my advertising budget for this site is $0. Will we have a diminished number of new members? Time will tell.
Suggestions and comments are welcome.
I have posted the video on my own site for those who care to have a look.
I have also created another youtube profile.
