In this video blog entry I share my experiences from the week that I flew from Hawaii to L.A., competed in the IBJJF American Nationals with a high fever and my thoughts about it, flying back home hurt and sick and give you guys a glimpse of Tel Aviv.
Spoiler alert: there are no bombs going off!
On a side note I’m super happy to be back home. I have an amazing family and group of friends and I’m just really enjoying their company and hearing what’s been going on with them while I’ve been away. Aside from that Tel Aviv is just a flat out awesome city and I look forward to showing it and it’s BJJ scene off in the next blog entry!
Stay tuned for more awesomeness from Israel and if anyone has any questions about Israel or wants to see how something looks leave a comment and let me know!
Hey guys, hope everyone is well!
So I know I’m a little behind as I’m not in Hawaii anymore, but I wanted to share this BJJ lifestyle blog entry with yall. haha.
In this episode I show you guys a bit around the north shore of Oahu (the island of Hawaii that Honolulu and Waikiki are on) and also share a little clip from the Jeff Glover seminar I attended while there where Jeff shows his “Thug Life” move. Although Jeff doesn’t show any technique in this clip I think what he says in the end is great food for thought and I just wanted everyone to be able to see it.
I really enjoyed Jeff’s seminar and definitely recommend attending one if you have the chance…
Thug life brings with it an interesting debate in my eyes. On one hand I believe you should try being technical in the academy and get swept/learn if someone is better technically then you and save the thuging for the tournaments, but on the other hand you compete how you train so it’s hard to say that. Honestly, I’m not really sure what to do with it yet. Maybe I’ll just keep being chill and improving the technical aspect of my BJJ and just thug it out when training intensely 2 weeks or so before a comp to get used to it.
Anyway I hope you enjoy and please leave a comment below and let me know what your opinion is about Jeff’s “Thug Life” concept. I’m really interested to hear what other people think about this!
P.S. If you’re ever in Oahu make sure to drop into Fowler’s academy there, you won’t be disappointed!
A Day at North Shore Oahu and Jeff Glover’s Thug Life

Hope you guys enjoy my contribution to the evolution of the art! Jiu jitsu has no end!! haha…
