10th Planet Burbank – This is how we get down! Well, not me, I was sick this day. So, this is how my boys get down at my gym in my absence. I’d like to think I somehow inspired them to have such an amazing training session though. I was definitely helping run this session from my couch while I was sleeping off whatever virus/bug I’d picked up. =P

Great job guys!!!


10th Planet ADCC West Coast Trials 2009

May 26th, 2009 In News | 21 Comments

Big shouts out to everybody that competed or came out to support this past weekend at the ADCC 2009 west coast trials. There were tons of us out representing that day. Riverside, Burbank, Hollywood HQ, all our friends and families came out to root us on as we competed. I was proud to be a part of such an amazing group of people. There was a real sense of comradery between us. Everybody it put it on the line and gave everything they had during the competition. After months of training, injuries, dieting, weight cutting etc it all came down to this day. In the end, win or lose, it’s my belief that we did a fantastic job coming together as a team. My hat is off to everyone, big props all around!

For me, this was an especially important event. This was my first ever, real competition. Thank you to my coaches, Eddie Bravo, Brent Littell, Shigeki Matsuda, Edwin Co, Scott Epstein, Jason Juatco (sorry if I forgot anybody). Thank You to all my training partners in Hollywood and Burbank that helped me get ready for the event. Win or lose, it was all about stepping outside of my comfort zone to challenge myself and test my skills. I learned so much this time around and look forward to competing again in the very near future.

10th Planet, all day!!!
