Hey all, I just started working on the Big Island during the weekdays and already I am bummed that I cannot train with all of you. I certainly look foreword to Saturdays when I am back on Oahu and in class. The last week I was in LA attending the UFC (man what an awesome event!!!) and I also made time to train and take private lessons with Marcio "Tinguinha" Mariano. His Jiu Jitsu is a modern take on the OG moves. I got to work extensively on the Half Guard (my favorite position). Tinguinha really helped that part of my game. We chatted a lot about his philosophy on the sport and fighting in general. I will be going back next month on my way to Vegas to train more and take more private lessons. Hit me up and I will be happy to share what was passed on to me. Well my friends, can't wait to see all of you.
