TRAINING: Start off with strength & conditioning at Top Line gym, then head to work for a bit. After work I head to Roufusport for pro training, which consists of wrestling, BJJ, and striking. I will then teach the little champs at the same gym. Next comes some drilling / padwork, then back to work.
