The fabulous advice from Mark Twight, the trainer for the cast/crew of the movie "300," bears repeating again, and again.

This is semi-old news since it happened in May 2013 but I was just made aware of it... so sad... I was contacted by one of Aldo Batista's former students who wanted some help in getting the word out so that potential future students might be made awa

For those of you maybe a little newer to jiu jitsu, or who haven't competed much in the bigger tournaments, you may be wondering what the heck is the Pan.I know when I first went, I called it the Pan Am or Pan Ams.

2013 was a crazy, crazy year for me, for the blog, for my jiu jitsu...The biggest deal of my 2013 was the infertility bullshit.
