A Break From the Grind – Hawaiian Vacation

Hey guys, so after a year and a half of nonstop rigorous training trying to catch up to all the guys that have been training BJJ since they were little kids I decided to allow myself to take a break.

A friend of mine who I met while traveling in Thailand invited me to come out to Hawaii to hang out and I just couldn’t resist. I can’t explain how happy I am to be here! I didn’t realize how much I needed this until I got here.

Anyway I hope you enjoy the video, I’m on cloud nine right now!

Copa Do Brasil – The Process Continues…

So as those of you who are following the “Itamar Marani BJJ” Facebook page know, I competed in the “Copa Do Brasil” last week and things didn’t go so well. This is a post about the competition itself and how things were in the immediate aftermath.

Oddly enough I really enjoyed making this video and I’m really looking forward to making the next one where I’ll share my insights from this experience with you guys.

On a side note it’s really nice to receive all these messages of support from everyone and I just wanted to say thanks!

Hope you enjoy!
