I am thankful that I found Jedd Johnson (Original Diesel Crew) back around 2004. He got me interested in grip training and we have done it since that time at my gym.

Many people neglect grip training, to their own detriment.

Grip is one thing that might possible save your life in an emergency if you have to climb, carry, or hold on to something.  It is also very important in defending yourself.
