Learn From Master Greg Lloyd

If you ever needed yet another reason to move to Fayetteville, Georgia, here it is. Only in Fayetteville could you learn martial arts from the one and only Greg Lloyd.

Yes, it's true. The former Steeler linebacker, famous for his "I Wasn't Hired for My Disposition" and "Real Men are Black" t-shirts, is a 4th-degree instructor at Oh Do Kwan Martial Arts, topped only by the one and only Master Joaquin Bonilla (no relation to Bobby) in the Oh Do Kwan hierarchy. According to the always-reliable Wikipedia, Lloyd has a black belt in Tae Kwon Do.

Lloyd has had a "colorful" couple of years since his NFL career has ended. He was accused of sticking a gun in his child's mouth because of poor grades in 2001, and in 2004 he pleaded no contest to pointing a gun at his wife's head. His son, Greg Lloyd Jr., will suit up for the UConn Huskies in the fall, but a protective order preventing his father from having any contact with him expired the day Junior turned 18. From the sound of things, it looks like the Lloyd father/son relationship has eroded to the point of no return. I'd imagine that's usually the way things happen after someone "allegedly" sticks a gun in your mouth.

Think about combining the size of Lloyd (one of the biggest men I've ever seen in person) with the black belt and then mix in a heavy dash of crazy. Then take the advice of another t-shirt from back in the day: Avoid the Lloyd.

Lloyd really puts Elijah Dukes to same. Dukes only sends a picture of a gun to his wife. Lloyd actually puts a gun to her head. Now if only he would go on the radio and use the word dawg after every sentenc...

i've seen some scary people, then i've seen greg lloyd. not only does he put dukes to shame, i think he puts 50 cent to shame as well. i still remember the forearm shiver he gave to mark brunell that absolutely knocked mark cold.

I actually took Tae Kwon Do lessons from the same guy that taught Lloyd, Grand Master Young Bo Kong. Kong once said that Lloyd had a ridgehand strike so strong that it could crush a mans skull even if he was wearing a helmet. If you don't believe me then go to the Young Brothers dojo on Babcock Blvd and ask for the introduction booklet and it'll have that quote in there.

Yes, I remember the "Avoid Lloyd" sign that used to hand in Three Rivers.

I very disappointed that back in 1995 when former Redskins DB Alvoid Mays joined the Steelers, the "Avoid Alvoid" thinig never really caught on.

Lloyd has the unfortunate distinction of probably being the best Steelers linebacker to never win a Super Bowl.

He also has the dubious distinction of "Best Steelers linebacker to threaten his son's life with a pistol".
