There is nothing like teaching somebody and watching them grow to there potential and beyond. One of the bigger guys in the gym Jake S. killed the work out for the day Rx'd meaning the prescribed weights and reps. It was an outstanding performance that left me highly impressed and extrremely motivated! Looking forward to the weeks to come...

First monday back

Been a great start to the week for training! Started out today at Koncrete gym where I did some sparring and boxing work. After which I trained a couple clients and had a poor kid liking after five minutes of some kick work. Following that I went to Bambusa for my Jitz and had a great time learning some new techniques then getting in some great rolling time where I pulled off the inverted triangle again in practice... Might have done that one a bit backwards but was a blast! Off to bed for me to start my day off right with some roadwork (miles) in the a.m.

The journey to the top of the mountain that i have been preparing to climb...

The climb to the top of the mountain starts! The peak of this mountain is known as the Bellator Light Heavy Weight tournament Champion. The belt is the prize but the completion of the task is what I am here for! I have been fighting not only in my bouts but also through training and in every aspect of my life ever since I was a little guy just like many others. Yes I am no different cause i put my pants on the same way and breathe the same air. The one difference that sets me apart is my love for this game known as Mixed Martial Arts. I see every day how people talk the talk yet have no actions to back up their false claims. I am here to set a new standard and raise the bar to a new level but that is as far as I will explain that. Time to have my actions explain the rest. To be continued...
