    Hey guys!!

    A couple weeks back I was given the honor of fighting in the Black Belt Grand Prix at Renzo Gracie’s World Jiu-Jitsu Expo. I had five matches and ended up making it all the way to the semi-finals, making for probably the best performance of my first year at black belt. I had two submissions, one win on points, one loss to Jackson Sousa (video below) by 3-3 on points and 2-1 on advantages and then unfortunately I lost the semi-final to a really tough and humble competitor in James Puopolo by 4-0. Below is the video of my first fight from the event. Stay tuned as I will be posting the rest of the fights here “em breve”. Osssssssssssss

     While the untimely demise of Fast and Furious star Paul Walker has been reiterated multiple times on every forum what is not being talked about if all the good the box office star brought to the world. Walker was more than an actor who brought enjoyment to millions through his movies. Reach Out Worldwide was the charity that Walker was set to go to for a function, and it was something that he helped create. The charity helps to bring supplies to those that have been affected by a natural disaster.
