Et tu Brute?

I was happy to wake up and see that my brother had just made it to the hotel room. We caught up a bit on current affairs, and then he dropped the bad news… … … … He got had too – the taxi scam strikes again! Before my brother arrived, I was telling all […]

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 […]

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.

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. […]

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 […]

How to be a Poser

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 […]
