A Rude Awakening with Gabriel "Godzilla" Ruediger A Rude Awakening with Gabriel 'Godzilla' Ruediger Stacey Naito, AMAM
The first time I got involved in martial arts was when I was very young, I got into Karate I think when I was maybe six or seven. And, I remember all I wanted to do was learn weapons, but they wouldn't allow me to initially learn weapons, so I quit. I wanted to play with swords and nun-chucks, but apparantly you had to be there for at least a year first to do that, so...I quit.

I was always interested in martial arts because of the movies with Bruce Lee, and...when I was a kid the "Karate Kid" was huge movie.

I started in Kung Fu when I was in high school. I thought I'd studied the deadliest fighting-styles of all time and I really genuinely thought my hands could kill somebody! Then, I learned that wasn't the case and I started learning Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. I'd seen UFC-3 on PPV and knew about the Gracie's, but didn't know much about what Jiu-Jitsu really entailed.
