Sean Springer, an instructor at RSA, recently sent the following articles on Jiu-Jitsu styles and effectiveness. I believe they are important reads for the serious, experienced and novice practitioner.
RSA will have a special promotion event on Labor Day at 7:30 PM. Please show your support for your hard working team mates.
"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 them 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, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in 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 fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat."
Win or lose at the Triple Crown or how you faired in your last training session, your RSA instructors are proud of you and each of you are a continual source of inspiration to all of us.
You guys are my heroes.
During our trip home from Brazil, one of the guys said that he heard of an Acai spot in Waikiki that was supposed to be authentic, “Tropical Tribe.”
When I came back, I went there to try one. I tried two. I tried three.
Holy Cow. Dark. Rich. Real.
There is no doubt in my mind that Tropical Tribe is seriously “legit” with Acai straight from the source. The owner Andre and sales manager Renata are as helpful and nice as they come. They are obviously passionate about a quality product. For an authentic Acai experience, check these guys out - you will love it.

“I wrote this song [Star Bright] while traveling abroad. Some of these places I’ve been while others I have yet to explore. Regardless, what a wondrous and magnificent planet we inhabit and most of all, it’s the beautiful and kind souls we meet along the way that really make it feel like home.” - Duff Kelly
