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!
