Today in wrestling, April 15, 2014

I arrived at the wrestling hall, expecting a horribly intensive training session, preparing for the national championships. But, today, the team had easy training because we had received a visit from the fencing team. During the course of the semester, various teams go and train with other teams, so the kids can get exposure to different kinds of sports. I remember when our san da class was visited by the tai chi team, for example. Wrestling against fencing, good thing the fencers didn’t bring their swords or my teammates would have lost. Well, not Zheng Tong. It would take more than a few sword stabs to kill him. I picture his severed hand crawling across the floor and continuing the fight.
So, the team played a lot of games and practiced basic break falls with the fencers, while I did ji ben gong. Afterwards, the coach assigned two guys to wrestle with me, and I got about 45 minutes of sparring and private lessons. I managed to pull off my Casey Barnet, single-underhook-fall-on-your-side, throw a couple of times. So, it is becoming a regular part of my arsenal. Also, for the first time in the history of me (a long and storied history) I managed the (God forgive me for this racist name) I pulled of a Jap-drop. This is a classic judo throw, where you grab your opponent’s arm, duck underneath, drop to your knees, and take him over your head. It was really perfect and surprised my sparring partner, but I honestly don’t know if I could do it twice.
One of my sparring partners caught me with a side, hip-throw, which was perfect. I mean, textbook perfect. While I was up in the air, I was thinking, “I really hope he pulls my arm and completes the spin, or I will land right on my head and probably be paralyzed for the rest of my life. I tucked my chin, and at the last second, my partner pulled the arm, and I crashed down, harmlessly, on my shoulder blades. But it did scare me. The kid that did that to me only weighs 72 Kgs. Amazing! After wrestling, I went straight to the weight room, downstairs from the wrestling hall, did my strength training, and then did my cardio. I came home, ate, showered, slept, ate again, and started working on finishing my paper that will hopefully be published soon. It has been a good day so far.

Fred Schroeder the Coward of Shenzhen (Part 3 of Infinity)

By Antonio Graceffo
Fred Schroeder, a pilot in Shenzhen, China has been harassing and insulting me for a year, repeatedly telling me he will beat me in an MMA fight. The fight has been set 12 times and he has backed out all 12 times. He has repeatedly insulted my Christian beliefs, told me he gang raped my mother and called me by racial slurs. I hope he will eventually fight me.

Horrible Comments Fred Schroeder Made in Lieu of Fighting me

From Fred Scchroeder: 03/16 “Please send me a pic of your mom, I want to honor the situation by wearing a tshirt with her pic in remembrance of her brutal gangrape and DBC. Death By C–k”

Mom high school graduation

(About the photo: Fred asked me to send him a picture of my mom, so he could deface it and masturbate with it. I told him my mom died very young and only a few photos survived. I sent him this one, which I said I believed to be her high school graduation photo. I thought if I gave him what he wanted, the photo, he would give me what I wanted, the fight. But I was wrong. )

For over a year, Fred Schroeder, a pilot working working for an Airlines in Shenzhen, China, has been ducking a fight with me. He agreed to the fight no less than 12 times, but backed out each time. He alternately sends me insulting emails or email and messages saying he can beat me in a fight, but somehow, the fight never materializes. He has repeatedly asked me for gay sex. He talks a lot about giving head and various sexual things with guys. He posted gay porn on my Facebook on no less than three occasions. When we were supposed to fight in a pro event, in the Fall of 2013, he said he would donate his earnings to the National Association of Man Boy Love and posted a link to their site on my Facebook.
In addition to run of the mill insults and the incessant gay innuendos, he also has made a number of antichristian comments. Because he knows I am a Christian, the only date he ever offered to fight me was December 25th, 2013. And he chose that date because he knew I would say “no.” The worst antichristian statement he made was “I am your G— kneel before me and open your mouth.” He also sent me text which read “F—you, F—your mother, and F—your Christian beliefs.” He likes insulting my mother, because he knows she died when I was a baby. He has repeatedly said “F—your mother” and that he is masturbating with her photo or that he applauded the men who gang raped her… “4/01/14 Antonio, fuck you, and fuck your mother too.” This was one of his kinder messages “SUCK MY BIG FAT COCK JUST LIKE YOUR MOM USED TO DO!”
During the course of the year, I have asked, and even begged him, for a fight date. I saved a lot of our emails, and I think I asked for a date nearly 1,000 times. He would generally ignore the request to set a fight date and just answer with insults.
His insults even go into the scatological. I told him I thought about him when I was sparring, and pretended my sparring partners were him. He told me he thought about me when he took a poop and emailed me a picture of his stool. He has also spoken about peeing on me. “After your lying on the ground I’m gonna piss on you. My way of saying thank you for this chance to fight you.”
I deleted a lot of his emails, simply because they were so horrible. Here are some of those that survived.

You really like to talk, and never stfu. Like mother like son, guess that’s why they teabagged your whore mom during her birth to you.

On a daily basis how many men cum in your mouth? Your mom was good at this, back In the day the boys used to pass her around like a nerf football.
