1-1 And Having Some Fun…

My preparation was perfect. I had a great night of sleep. Had a great breakfast. My weight was perfectly under control. Had an excellent warm up. My focus was laser sharp. After not competing for about 1 year, I have never felt better stepping onto the mats. My first opponent was Rodrigo Caporal, a BJJ […]

Scaled the Great Wall Of China and Made Weight!

Yesterday was a relaxing day. With my weight right on point, we decided to do some site-seeing and visit the Great Wall of China. Our mighty group of warriors consisted of Rickson Gracie, Kron Gracie, Cyborg, Tanquinho, Joao, Andy, Marcos, and myself. It was a breath-taking view to see how far the walls span! The […]

Et tu Brute?

The Ups and Downs of My Day With Master Rickson Gracie

Tonight was not a good night. I lost a TV channel tonight on my hotel room – CNN. Might not seem like a big deal, but I only had 2 english channels, CNN and HBO. Now it is just HBO, and I have already seen everything on it. Well on the bright side, I have […]

That doesn’t mean that you can’t make lemonade with those lemons life has given you. 🙂 I got in two training sessions yesterday and got a good sweat going in my […]

It is really grey in Beijing…

Well, after arriving yesterday in Beijing, I think (not sure what day with time shift lol), I was fortunate to share a cab with Roberto “Cyborg” Abreu. I normally don’t get a taxi until I’m outside, but as we were walking out someone followed us around with decent english, so we took a chance with […]

Hungry, Thirsty, And Sleepy

I just landed on my layover in Chicago. I have been staying awake to help myself slide right in with the time shift that awaits me in Beijing. Plan now is to get a good meal in, drink at least 2 liters of water (flying dehydrates you worse than being in a desert), and once […]

Get Ready Beijing, I’m Coming For Your Gold!

Tomorrow morning I will set off on a journey that I have waited two years to take. The 2013 ADCC Submission Wrestling World Championships, hosted in Beijing, China. My ADCC 2011 run was a disappointment for me. Not because I lost or because I got injured. But I failed to live up to my potential. […]

Learn From The Same Curriculum I Teach My Students

That’s right! No secrets are kept from those who seek knowledge from me. I want to share the system of martial arts we teach at FFA (Freestyle Fighting Academy) with the world! I have loved emailing everyone on this site with informative tips and techniques, so I wanted to expand my contribution to the martial […]
