Jesus Didn't Tap

Recommended Posts

Firstly... I am a Christian, although this is not intended as a religious debate topic. Also, I ask in advance if we can please keep it civil and avoid the flaming.

 

I'm sure many of you on this forum watched Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers, probably as kids.

 

What does that have to do with this topic, you might ask? Well... it is the reason behind the topic title.

 

Jason David Frank, who played Tommy the green ranger/white ranger, had since gone on to pursue other interests in real life. Hes an accomplished martial artist who owns his own dojo, he is into mixed martial arts, and as I found out... owns his own MMA clothing apparel line entitled "Jesus Didn't Tap".

 

Jason David Frank Goes From Green Power Ranger to Christian MMA Clothing Designer

By: Lilit Marcus

 

 

Jason David Frank, who played Tommy the Green Ranger (later the White Ranger, when there was some he’s dead/now he’s back to life storyline which I know nothing about because I totally never watched the show) on Power Rangers, has had something of a career renaissance. Unlike the Pink Ranger (who was on Felicity, annoyed the hell out of me, and then disappeared) and the Red Ranger (who apparently is doing porn now), Jason has chosen to pursue a career outside of the entertainment industry. He has become a Christian and is also a huge fan of MMA (mixed martial arts). He calls himself a “fighter-entrepreneur for Jesus.”

 

His awesomely titled company, Jesus Didn’t Tap, sells T-shirts, sweatshirts, gloves, shorts, and more. (Side note: does anyone know what a “rash guard” is?) From the official site, which really likes to emphasize that fight a dude/fight for Jesus metaphor, or, as I like to say, beats it into the ground:

 

When Jesus stepped inside the cage of life to take on the cross, human legs did not kicked his out from under him. It was not human hands that broke his arm during the arm bar of adversity. It was not a human fist that knocked him to the mat for our sins. It was not a human that kept him inside the triangle choke of suffering. It was not the fighter’s sent by Satan to tap him out that beat him.

 

God gave him strength while on his back being pounded in the face by the elbows of sin. Those same hands that formed the universe. Those same hands that held you and me before the foundation of the world.

 

Take a jog out to the mountain of the skull. Out to the cross where, with holy blood, the hand that placed you on the planet wrote the promise, “God would give up his only Son before he’d Tap Out on you.

 

Truly, Jesus Didn’t Tap! – Are you tapping out on him?

 

Remember, it is called a fight for a reason. However, we fight from victory not for victory. Keep Fighting!

 

I will never tap out on you, Tommy the Green Ranger!

That is just badass!

 

It is good to see the man seems quite successful and doing well for himself all these years after the show.

I just watched the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers movie a few days ago, was obsessed with them in my youthful days.

Wow he looks awsome now. I remember when he still had the long hippy hair lol.

 

Used to love the original power ranges back when the humor was at least original. Now seeing my cousins and nephews watching the newest seasons and having the same jokes 10 seasons on :wall:

 

And i didn't figure red would go for porn... why do i get the feeling that this thread will turn into a man hunt to find out what the black, blue and yellow rangers have been up to?

Me behave? Seriously? As a child I saw Tarzan almost naked, Cinderella arrived home from a party after midnight, Pinocchio told lies, Aladin was a thief, Batman drove over 200 miles an hour, Snow White lived in a house with seven men, Popeye smoked a pipe and had tattoos, Pac man ran around to digital music while eating pills that enhanced his performance, and Shaggy and Scooby were mystery solving hippies who always had the munchies. The fault is not mine! if you had this childhood and loved it put this in your signature!

Sounds to me he is an MMA fighter. A rash guard is a skin tight shirt, such as underarmor. It prevents you frm getting rashes (obviously) when you are wrestling on a mat. Rash burn SUCKS.

Wouldn't it be a bit difficult to tap when your hands are nailed to a big wooden cross?

The beginning is still unbeaten in my eyes. Jumping out of an airplane and skydiving/skyboarding? Hella yes.

and the Red Ranger (who apparently is doing porn now)

 

What a disturbing thought. He's probably working with girls who have watched his show when they were little kids.

Are you implying there were a large amount of girls that watched Power Rangers on a regular basis?

In my mind, it was Jesus tap-dancing, circled in red, with a slanted red bar across the circle.


Matt: You want that eh? You want everything good for you. You want everything that's--falls off garbage can

Camera guy: Whoa, haha, are you okay dude?

Matt: You want anything funny that happens, don't you?

Camera guy: still laughing

Matt: You want the funny shit that happens here and there, you think it comes out of your [bleep]ing [wagon] pushes garbage can down, don't you? You think it's funny? It comes out of here! running towards Camera guy

Camera guy: runs away still laughing

Matt: You think the funny comes out of your mother[bleep]ing creativity? Comes out of Satan, mother[bleep]er! nn--ngh! pushes Camera guy down

Camera guy: Hoooholy [bleep]!

Matt: FUNNY ISN'T REAL! FUNNY ISN'T REAL!

Yes, he is a MMA fighter.

 

He had four amateur fights this year, all of which he won. 4-0 record.

 

He had his first professional fight less than two weeks ago, august 4th against Jose Vasquez, which he also won.

 

Someone posted the fight on youtube:

(part 1 - 9:25 length)

(part 2 - 3:47 length)

 

Annoying camera movement aside, you can see the fight. He won in 46 seconds.

 

Oh and I should add by submission. So while Jesus didn't tap, Jose surely did. ;)

 

 

Edit: His first amateur MMA fight:

(4:44 length)

David Yost (the blue ranger) owns a pizza place I think, he also does some convention appearances, he's set to appear in Degenerate this year

Amy Jo Johnson has a music career (albiet a small one) now. .

Coudlnt' find anything out on Zack Taylor *Black ranger) I know he ended up going back to the show to do some voice actin.

 

The porn thing for the red ranger was a lookalike iirc.

Yeah, Amy (pink ranger) has a few albums out. She also stars in Flashpoint, a police-type show on CBS.

 

The yellow one I knew died years ago, as has been previously posted.

 

As far as the red ranger, yeah I am pretty sure the porn thing was a look-a-like. I had heard about it several years back.

 

I have not heard anything of the black or blue one in years, though I have not really looked much. So no idea.
