Hey guys, I am still on the island but I am packed and all set to go. As soon as something interesting pops up, I will be sure to BLOG IT!
we are still waiting for updates other then on your facebook page.
First stop:
Gracie Jiu-Jitsu Academy
aka "Jiu-Jitsu Heaven"

I first met up with Rener and Ryron Gracie

Then just like Todd's class, First thing's first... Self Defense

Directly after the self defense portion, we had a short lesson on some positional techniques:

Then we had Open Mat for the rest of the class

Lastly, we all line up and Rener gave out some announcements, then class was dismissed

I also got to hang out with these Gracie Monsters and check out their museum. SICK!

During my time at the Gracie Academy, I received one of the best comments...

(directly after I was finished rolling with one of their 4 stripe blue belts)
"Wow, I have to admit... You are really good. A lot of visiting blue belts that come through here, I feel, aren't REALLY blue belts. They are more like glorified white belts. But you sir, are definitely on the right track. It was good rolling with you."

That made my day...

ps. I caught him with a bow/arrow choke, Key lock from the cross, and a sexy foot lock.
Of course, No trip to LA is complete without stopping off at
JIU-JITSU PRO GEAR!

Then off to Santa Monica to go check out LEGENDS GYM and 10th Planet

ENTER 10TH PLANET JIU-JITSU!

And since there was not an official class going on,
WE MONKEY AROUND!!

sexy foot lock? what the hell is that? doesn't sound like something that would work... what idiot taught you that?

Yea, I had my doubts, but you better believe it... THE SEXY FOOTLOCK IS REAL! and works.
I think you've met the guy who taught it to me. It's that super lazy 4 stripe purple belt at HK. You know, the one who just lays around in different un-submittable positions while people give it their best to tap him (and majority fail).
"Jiu-Lazy-Jitsu"
So some random updates:
1) I passed a sign on the side of the highway that said "Braille Institute - Next Exit". I found this ridiculously funny. For those who don't know what braille is, it's for BLIND PEOPLE! (a braille sign on the side of the highway, hilarious)

2) I drove through a place south of Hollywood called "Little Ethiopia". This was extremely confusing because it was full of restaurants, cafe's, and coffee shops. Since when did Ethiopia have food??

3) I rode a beach cruiser up and down Santa Monica Beach, Venice Beach, and got to flex my stuff in front of Muscle Beach. haha... I also rode by the basketball courts that were used to film White Men Can't Jump. That was pretty cool.

Will post pictures shortly.
