We left LA and planned to head up along the coast the whole way to San Francisco over 2 days. We started the drive and headed trough Malibu only to be turned around and had to take the back roads due to an accident on the road. Once back on the Coast road again we made our way to Morro Bay, a Continue reading “San Francisco and the Ralph Gracie Academy”
We headed back up to Los Angeles with the plans to stay around 4 days and get some more training in that we missed on our first visit.

This made the 8hr drive a struggle as I was unable to keep down anything including water, we had to make a number of stops so I could “empty Continue reading “Yellowstone …….. Well sort of :(“
So, the whole reason for visiting Colorado wasn’t so much for the jiu Jitsu but more to let Lilly and Kobe experience snow, living in the Pilbara of Western Australia it’s something they have never seen before. They were so excited they had been asking about it every day since we told them that we were heading that way.
