Last weekend was amazing. After winning my super fight, I did a seminar with my good friend Carlos Condit and met some very nice people. As much as I like competing, I love sharing the mats with others and spreading jiu jitsu so the experience was awesome.
After the seminar it kept getting better as I was surprised and honored to receive “the most technical fighter of the year” award.
When I was younger I was often frustrated and upset. Being smaller than others, everything seemed difficult and nothing seemed “fair”. In reality it was a blessing and through jiu jitsu I was able to see that.
I’d like to thank all my instructors and any one who has shared this amazing art with me. I would like to thank my family, my team, my friends and every one who follows and supports me. THANK YOU!!!! I also like to thank all the students at the Institute of Martial Arts, there really is no place like home and for me, IMA is my home. I am excited to be training and teaching there now more than ever!!
Lastly id like to thank my sponsors Versa Climber and Gameness who make it all possible. They not only support me but more importantly the growth of our sport.
Thank you guys!!
