With this it's like buying Gumby the beverage of his choice (these days it tends to be more coffee than anything but I'm not adverse to the occasional brew).  You've also unlocked some subscriber only benefits including bonus content.  Cheers!

Hey Big Spender!  Thanks so much for even considering this.  Cheaper than the alternatives, I'll try to be twice as entertaining.  In addition to bonus content, get to participate in polls on what content should go up next.

Hi, and thanks for visiting my Patreon page!  My name is Alan "Gumby" Marques and I've done almost everything one can do in the world of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and MMA over the last 20 years.  Student, Instructor, Competitor, Journalist, Promoter, I've been all around the world simultaneously spreading and learning of Jiu Jitsu.  I am eager to continue to share with the world techniques, commentary, and footage I have gathered over the years. 

It's the last part which I have turned to Patreon.  I have personally filmed and amassed one of the largest collections of raw tournament footage in the world, and especially have the late 90's and early 2000 era of the sport well documented.  Hundreds of hours of footage are stored on MiniDV tapes documenting big and small events, plenty of significant milestones and many competitors before they became really famous.  I get asked plenty of times when I am going to release the footage, the truth is it is a bit of a labor intensive process to capture and edit the footage, and my old equipment is a bit wonky these days.  So your Patreon will help with some of the immediate costs of transferring the footage over, new equipment and decks, hard drives to catalog the information and everything will be released on YouTube for all to enjoy.

And heck, if you enjoy my original content, writing and new Video Logs, here's a chance for you to support that as well.  I have been around a long time, and still have insider connections and insights to share. 

Thank you for considering supporting this endeavor, I am looking forward to being very interactive with my audience and the Brazilian Jiu Jitsu community at large!

A reasonably modest goal, but allows me to recoup my costs of equipment and time.  Thank you!  You are much appreciated.
