Ryan Bernardino is a Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Black Belt out of Gracie Humaita in Las Vegas, NV. He just beat cancer and is looking forward to another strong performance at the IBJJF Pans tournament this year in Southern California. Ryan is sponsored by Want vs Need @wantvsneed and is joined on the show today by our friend and owner / founder of the brand Al Lagura . He's been on the show once already so this should be a good time.
Keith Fukumae is a Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Black Belt under One World Jiu Jitsu.
Mike Prudencio is the leader and founder of One World Jiu Jitsu, a Dave Camarillo Black Belt and my long time instructor.
I have been training with these guys for years. I have learned so much from both of them. They are my friends. They my instructors. They are my training partners. Catch Fookie at Fight 2 Win Pro on February 10th 2018 as he makes his professional debut for the promotion in a Gi Jiu Jitsu super fight. It is going to be awesome.
Had a great time talking to Sabre Jiu Jitsu main man Bryant Pangelinan . Brought Bailey along so our two American bullies got hang out too. Bryant is a 1st degree black belt with a laundry list of accomplishments in the grappling world. He's also the owner of a couple really awesome dogs. We hung out today and recorded a show for the podcast while our American Bully dogs hung out and chilled. Bryant is a former law enforcement officer and has been training since 2003 so be sure and check this episode out. He's got some really great perspective .
From the Sabre Jiu Jitsu website:
Bryant was born in Germany, while his father was in the military. His family originates from the island of Guam. Having lived and traveled all over the world, his family settled in the East Bay of Northern California.
Bryant attended De La Salle high school and wrestled for the Spartans. He later finished college at Saint Mary's in Moraga, and began his JiuJitsu journey in 2003. He pursued a career in Law Enforcement and served as a patrol officer and also a Recruit Training Officer.

Happy 2018 everyone. There's been a whole hell of a lot of ups and downs. W's and L's but we made it. It's a brand new year. In this episode I'm taking a drive through the Nevada desert two days after Christmas 2017. I spent some time with family, put in some rehab work for my torn MCL, and took a 1200+ mile road trip round trip with Bailey the Wonder Dog. ( She's my American Bully dog ). Anyway happy near. Thanks to everyone who helped make my year amazing.
