Great Southern Stand

Steve Parker presents a visit with humanity at it's most bizarre, through the eyes of a madman!


Changed my mind.

I changed my mind.

I'm still going to do the fitness thing, but I made a new page for it.

Hope to see you there.

Hiya folks, Steve here. Merry Happy and all that, Jolly new year etc. Hope no-one's dead and none of your family pets were raped. Now that the niceties are done with, onto business.

For those of you who don't know, which I am assuming is pretty much everyone, I have started MMA training. I am 37, I've been smoking, drinking and generally sitting about quite a lot for about 20 years now, and I decided it was time to do something about it.

I quit smoking a few weeks ago with the help of some wonderful little pills, and PSC (punkspacecadet, my lady love) and I are both training at a working MMA gym in the city.

The MMA community in Adelaide is quite small. In Australia in general we are a boxing and  kick boxing country as far as martial arts are concerned, but I have hopes that I will be able to eventually fight in a ring or cage, as does PSC.

So this webpage is pretty much going to be a record of our training, and of our journey from couch potatoes devouring junk food and cigarettes all day to however high we manage to climb on the MMA ladder.

So, if you are interested in this sort of thing, stick around. If you came here for the podcast, I don't do that anymore. To be honest, I'm pretty embarassed about the ill thought out and poorly educated ideas I put out in those podcasts, but I am still an honest guy. I made em, so there they stay.
No matter how much I might want to delete them.

Look forward to videos and whatnot about our training, and maybe some discussions on technique as well.

This is irregular, I am not going to be posting weekly, monthly, or even annually. I will post when I have content, and not before. Feel free to write in anytime on with any comments or questions.
