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

The amazing around-the-world burger project: Boracay, Philippines.

In Boracay, I encountered yet another heavyweight. Who would have thought that I would roll with so many of those in Asia, a region notoriously known for their fast, technical lightweights.

Again, this burger was heavily relying on it’s weight, but still had some technical foundation. Since I had trained a lot during the day, I was exhausted and I almost ended up tapping out to this athletic blue belt two stripes. I pulled myself together and finished it with experience and good posture.
