I'm riding down Highway 160 from the scenic desert of Nye County Nevada on over to Sin City. Las Vegas, Nevada has become something of a second ( or third or fourth ) home to me over the years. I've got family and friends that live in the area plus I spent a few years living out there myself back in the early 2000's. On this episode we take a little ride across the desert and talk about the last couple of weeks since we last had one of these conversations. I hope that everyone had an awesome Thanksgiving ( to those who celebrate of course ). We've only got about a month left in 2017 so whatever goals you had for the year it's time to get to work ! Start planning your 2018 now so we can attack it full force before it even knows what hit it .

It's official. I am a type one diabetic. I was basically sick all summer since I had no idea what the hell was wrong with me. I've got everything all sorted now. My doctor has smartened me up to what I need to do and everything is under control. My father had the same thing so I knew what I was going to have to deal with. No big deal. I adjust, move forward and keep kicking ass. Nobody wants to hear a grown ass man complain so I'm not about to start that crap now.  On this show we are flipping the script all together. I had the pleasure ( and honor ) of being a guest on the MMA Dude Bro Podcast and this show will feature a clip of that interview. For more info on the MMA Dude Bro Podcast just search for them on Apple Podcasts and if you like MMA you'll love these guys. Thanks to Kenneth for the opportunity. I hope everyone likes the show.

Last week I drove down to Los Angeles for New Japan Pro Wrestling’s first US based event . Whether you love or hate pro wrestling the level of entertainment you get from Japanese wrestling is insane. The fans are crazy about it and for good reason. The stuff these guys are able to do it a wrestling ring is insane. Since it’s Japanese based there’s more of a “shoot style” kind of mma influence in a lot of the stuff they do ( when they’re not bouncing off the roof flying and stuff lol ) !     Anyway! From there I drove down to Palm Springs to hang out with Roy Dean and record some content for our channels. We did a 2 hour podcast which is linked on this post. His videos and teaching style are something I’ve really appreciated about Roy for a long time. We have been in contact online for quite some time but actually spending time him was pretty cool. He went out of his way to be accommodating and actually taught me a lot of stuff about video editing I just didn’t know.

One last stop before I head home and it's with one of the true legends of the sport and easily one of the top places to train in Las Vegas. Robert Drysdale is one of the best instructors I've ever had the pleasure of learning from.  Possibly the most accomplished American Grappler of his generation, Robert Drysdale is a black belt in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu a rank he earned training with the legendary coach Leonardo Vieira. Born of an American father and a Brazilian mother, Robert Drysdale grew up, for the most part, in Brazil, training with one of the most talented teams of the 2000’s era (Brasa). Robert Drysdale was also the 2nd American to win an IBJJF World Championship (2005), later going on to win the ADCC (2007) in the open weight category. Robert Drysdale  also competed in mixed martial arts (MMA) reaching the pinnacle of the sport, the UFC. By the end of 2013 Drysdale joined forces with Rodrigo Cavaca to form a new grappling team – Zenith BJJ.

Miami Beach. Warm water, beautiful beaches, perfect weather, amazing food. It's also home to one of the founding families of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. The Valente Brothers are based in Florida and have been part of the Jiu Jitsu scene since the very beginning. From their beginnings as part of the Gracie Jiu Jitsu Academy in Brazil dating back to the 1950's their work speaks for itself. Their new headquarters in North Miami Beach, FL is very, very impressive and is absolutely worth a visit to anyone interested in learning more about the history and tradition of the beautiful art of Jiu Jitsu. I had the pleasure of visiting their academy this past week. In this episode I talk about my recent travels as I have been on the road fairly extensively lately !

Of all of the Jiu Jitsu seminars I have been to over the last few years Henry really stood out to me. After spending the day with him in Concord, California this year I was compelled to take the trip down to Los Angeles to learn more. The way he uses weight, space and most significantly pressure efficiently made me drive nearly 400 miles to attend his classes at Dynamix, MMA off of Santa Monica blvd. I was absolutely not disappointed. I appreciate the training, the wisdom and the opportunity to have Henry on the show . Hopefully everyone enjoys the episode ! For more information on Henry check him out at http://hiddenjiujitsu.com and be sure to visit Dynamix MMA in Los Angeles for awesome training, a great vibe, great people and some of the best jiu jitsu instruction available anywhere, ever.

Today on the show we've got an unreleased episode from "the vault" . This one took a while to get edited as we were having some technical difficulties with a mixer at the time. We initially recorded this following John's win at Bellator ( Fedor vs Mitrione ) in San Jose a few months ago . The last weeks have been so busy it's actually taken quite a while to go back and get the audio sorted for this one.  We are one day removed from Memorial Day so I want to send a big " thank you " to all of the veterans past, present and future . You put your lives on the line and many do pay the ultimate price for our freedom back home so, again, thank you.  John Cardenas is a friend, training partner and an undefeated mixed martial arts fighter out of the American Kickboxing Academy.

Eduardo Telles is a Brazilian Jiu Jitsu black belt under Fabio Gurgel and one of the most creative grapplers in the World. Famed for being a fan of the “Esquijitsu” (a nickname applied to his game which translates to: weird Jiu Jitsu) he created several attacks from the turtle position, a position that was deemed a weaker position by most grapplers before Telles created the turtle guard, revolutionizing what once was defensive ‘go-to’ move. Eduardo Telles also created several trademark setups from a position that became famous as the Octupus Guard. https://www.instagram.com/nineninehq http://www.ninenine99.com/
