Hotel Training

You got to deal the hand you are given. You won’t always have access to state-of-the-art equipment, world class training partners, or high-level instructors. 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 […]

In combat, it is always a good idea to be a “poser.” Why? You never want your opponent to really know what you are up to. As it was written in the Art of War, war uses deception as a principal tactic. When your enemy knows what your strategy is, it is to prepare for […]

The Difference That 10 Years Makes

I recently turned 32, and I feel great! I used to hear my older students complain about “getting old,” even though I wouldn’t consider being in your thirties “old.” They would say there cardio has dropped off, reaction time has suffered, and complain of injuries. I won’t lie and say there is no drawbacks, but […]

What Does It Take To Be A GOAT?

By GOAT, I do not mean the animal. 🙂 I am talking about the Greatest Of All Time. Champions like Anderson Silva and GSP are called the Greatest not because they are the strongest, fastest, or best technicians in MMA. All great athletes have similar physical makeups. That doesn’t make them champions. If you had […]
