Another great MMA event at Phoenix MMA Gym this weekend, firstly thanks to Jimmy for all the hard work (especially in light of how well he felt Friday) and getting everything organised and ensuring the show ran so smoothly.
Well done to all our team-mates, who win or lose, stepped up.
Congratulations Seb, Matt, Ben, Fred, Damo, Ollie and Alex.

"It is not the critic who counts: not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles or where the doer of deeds could have done better.
The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood, who strives valiantly, who errs and comes up short again and again, because there is no effort without error or shortcoming, but who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions, who spends himself for a worthy cause; who, at the best, knows, in the end, the triumph of high achievement, and who, at the worst, if he fails, at least he fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who knew neither victory nor defeat."

Safe is the enemy of greatness.
It is the pillow average and mediocre people cry themselves to sleep on every night.
Be bold.
Step to the dge of the cliff you fear most.
Dont just jump, DIVE.
Believe deeply!
Your destiny will catch you on the way down.
Always believe.

Well done bro!

One of my oldest training partners and friends, someone who was with me from even before my BJJ journey began recently won a tough decision in SA.
I havent been fortunate enough to train or share a wave with him for some time but was really stoked to see him win his fight.

Well done bro, Im proud of you and to have trained with you and call you my friend.

"The Greatest help is self-help; there is no other help but self-help - doing one's best, dedicating oneself wholeheartedly to a given task, which happens to have no end but is an ongoing process." -Bruce Lee
