Frank Shamrock deserves a lot of credit. But ultimately, he was an advocate for optimal physical performance and athleticism. Which by the way, was what Bruce Lee stressed as one of the key ingredients to being a good fighter.

I remember in about 2000, Frank was looking to get out of the fight game and wanted to become a full time trainer and was hoping to get a job at Dan Inosanto's academy. He was extremly excited at the possibility.

However, the academy already had a shoot wrestling coach (Nakamura) and one of the Machado brothers teaching BJJ. I bring this up because Frank was trying become an instructor at a Jeet Kune Do school.
