Great weather here and awesome training! This is my week #3 of my training camp. #1 was at NYC\NJ, #2 OAMA and now #3 week is going to be in LA!

I just got here two days go, already got some great training in. I got the chance to train with Shawn Williams (Renzo Gracie Black belt) at his academy, practicing my taping techniques Also got to train with Kru John, who is the Muay Thai and kettle bell instructor at Shawn’s academy.

Also I had the honor to train with Justin Fortune, great boxing coach at his gym; Fortune Gym! He held mits for a few rounds, talked about boxing for MMA and he gave me some really good advice.

Fortune Gym is a 1950s style Boxing gym in the heart of Hollywood, run by former Heavyweight Contender, Justin Fortune of Australia.
