Here's a quick Frank Shamrock story while we're all in the mood - Awhile back I was training at AKA. The submission wrestling class was being led by somebody besides Shamrock I forget who, but in any case Frank came down and rolled around a little bit. The students just seemed to be a little in awe of him and all eyes were on him. This was when he was getting ready to make a comeback against Ricardo Almeida. The impression I had was that he'd been out of the gym for awhile and no-one had seen him roll lately.
So anyway, one at a time he picked out a few people to roll with. And now this may sound insignificant, but I was very struck by one of the people he chose to roll with: He picked this slow overweight greasy long haired acne faced teenager off the bench to roll with, some guy who I knew goddamned well could not give him any kind of workout. This kid was ugly, wearing jeans to class with some metal hairband T-Shirt, and just looked like a prime candidate for getting his head flushed down the toilet at school.
I think Frank chose to roll with him because he knew that it would be the highlight of this kid's day, raise his esteem a little, and to take it further it would probably be a highlight in his life.
Anyway, I was touched by it. Frank Shamrock is no angel, but he can be a very kind person.
