Hey guys, how’s everyone doing?
So I’m back home and back to my normal training routine. I wanted to publish a blog entry about how my day to day life in Israel looks as well show you guys how the BJJ scene out here is… And yeah, sorry, but I had to throw the Zohan bit in there. lol. No one messes with the Zohan!
On a personal note I’m really enjoying being back. My family is nothing short of amazing and I’m so grateful that I get to have people of their quality around me. Training is going well, everyone is super friendly and it’s really awesome to see how everyone is supporting my journey and trying to help however they can.
Like you guys are about to see I’ve been training with the MMA Israel crew and they are a great group of guys. I’ve been doing about 8 sessions of BJJ a week and about 2-3 more conditioning workouts.
The only downside on this visit so far is something that I’ve noticed and can’t be ignored, which is my fading interest in what some of my friends, aside from a select few, are into nowadays. I don’t know if it’s the fact that I probably went through a couple years worth of crazy experiences since I was last home and that kind of excelled some things in my personal outlook on life or the fact that I’ve truly adopted the BJJ lifestyle, but it’s getting gradually harder for me to truly enjoy myself around the majority of people that I know from my age group and connect. It’s kind of weird and I’m still not sure how I feel about it. I would love to hear if anyone else has gone through something like this.
Anyway I hope you enjoy this video blog entry and let me know what you want to see of Israel and I’ll try to make it happen.
Also in case you didn’t notice from FB and such I got picked up by BJJ Religion and BJJsports.com! I really love their Gi and will be posting up a review about it as well as showing a high percentage pass + choke combo where having a Gi like their’s makes everything much easier in an upcoming episode. Make sure to stay tuned for it!
P.S. The soundtrack is an awesome calibration by Infected Mushroom and Berry Sakharov called “Yomoledet”. They’re both Israeli artists and Infected are one of my favorites to listen to while working out. I highly recommend checking them out on Youtube!
