Stopped by 10th Planet Costa Mesa this morning for their Sunday open mat. It is always packed with people at every level and everyone has a good attitude. That is one of the biggest reasons that I enjoy going there. You can actually train and practice bad position thanks to the guys there all putting their egos aside. Some gyms you visit and you don’t get to really practice because every guy is out for your head due to you being an outsider and it becomes competition.
And one more just for me! ;)
Took me 12 years to get my Brazilian Jiu Jitsu black belt ;P I turned it down 4 years ago because I wanted my black belt to be from the team I consider family. Getting today from Tracy Hess made waiting completely worth it.
For anyone reading this, there are a bunch of people I want to thank for getting me here:
Rob Spencer, Jeremy Williams (RIP), Rick Estrada, Russ Miura, Adam Lynn, Tracy Hess, Rani Yahya, Bao Quach, Juliano Prado, JJ Ambrose, Rick Catindig, Ryan Gregg & William Kessler.

About to head back home from another weekend of fights in Laughlin. We’ve been taking guys to fight in this show for almost a decade now (my last fight was in March 2008 in this same show). We had hoped to have more guys fighting on the card, but only found match ups for Mario at middleweight and Fabian at heavyweight.
