The story of my trip around the world to train, teach and compete in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and other grappling arts.

Destination: Philippines

I got in touch with some guys in the Philippines, and it is a place I would love to come by on the trip. I was in Boracay back in 2006 and I loved it there (check out my blog from that trip – unfortunately, some of the photos were deleted by accident).

I heard from a guy called Francis who trains in New Breed Academy in Manila. I was in Manila only one night back in 2006 so this time I will take some more time to check out the place. I have also talked to John Acosta, who invited me to Cebu, so I plan on going there as well.

Apart from that, I would like to spend a little time travelling around the islands while I am there. It is a very beautiful country and there are many places I didn’t get a chance to visit last time. Francis have recommended me a lot of interesting things to see and do, and domestic flights are really cheap so I think I’ll play it by ear when I get there :)
