Man, it's been 3 long weeks of me being here in Louisville Kentucky. I have been here attending certification school for my insurance carrer. Because of the type of business I do, the government requires that I be certified and must pass several certification exams. I have taken like 8 since being here and it was not easy. If not for my BJJ training I seriously may have given up. One of the things I have learned from Jiu Jitsu is perserverance ( where the hell is the spell check?) It was certainly difficult and having been out of college for some time sudying was not easy, (especially with tempting establishments in the area). There were also some bouts with loneliness ( I miss my wife and all you guys). Well, the time is here and I have just 4 days left. Do I ever want to come back here?, no!!!, but the experience is invaluable. There has been some talk of leaving Hawaii to pursue my career and I have more thinking to do. In the meantime I'll return to Honolulu and continue my Jiu JItsu journey. I look foreword to being back at Team HK. ALOHA!!
