2014.05.28PM; Jiu-Jitsu...rolled with a husky white belt with great balance for a while. While all told, he was struggling, he did have great balance and wormed his way out of a couple of sweeps I thought I had closed the deal on, which kept things interesting. Spent the next hour assisting others with drilling, and then bounced to go pick up my son.

2014.06.01AM; spent the morning planting corn and papaya with my son, and then having some sword battles in the back yard. He's into Pokemon right now so there was a lot of yelling and casting of attacks. In the afternoon we went for a hike up and down Waʻahila Ridge.

Then I cooked my dinner, packed them up, and shipped them off to Bosnia for 2 months. :(

Cool Conan picture.

I neither have a wife or kid, nor know what it would be like to say goodbye for a few months to them. Hope you have happy thoughts while they're gone and safe travels to them.

Having recently got married I can't imagine being away from my wife for a week let alone two months. Why the long break? Does she have family there?

Congratulations on your marriage. Mazel tov.

Yes, my wife is from Sarajevo (was Yugoslavia, now Bosnia and Herzegovina) and we go back there each year to visit family. It's a good chance for my son to experience a world very different from our lives here in Hawaii and we usually poke around some other part of Europe as well. Unfortunately, I am not going this year.

2014.06.03PM; Jiu-Jitsu...walked to and from the academy, a 3 mile bonus.

Spent the first 20 minutes in a death match with my best training partner; I did very well early on, but late in the match he put me back in closed guard and from there slowly backed me into a triangle. I saw it coming, but after the heavy squats yesterday, I just wasn't moving the way I wanted to.

After that, an hour of drills defending the double underhook pass, then more 8 minute rounds. Here again, I wasn't performing and got snuffed out with a bow and arrow choke from the back. It wasn't all bad; twice I had him down and was looking for a finish when the time sounded, but end result was me: 0, him: 2...which sucks. Sometimes hammer, sometimes nail. All other rounds with other people were uneventful.

Aloha!
