"Submissions in Paradise"

If you are a loyal follower to the IJJ Blog, you have known that the multiple time World Champions have graced the islands with their presence this past month.  After a lot of work and planning, Island Jiu-jitsu made it happen with the most innovative seminar Hawaii has seen in memory.  We meant to post this blog a few weeks ago, however with the holidays and everything(Triple Crown of Surfing) we got a little behind our normal schedule.

The idea of the seminar actually began back in August of 2010, and after the amount of positive feedback we have received, we are already planning the next few to hit our islands!

This is the recap of some of the activities we did (ENJOY!!!)

Here is a picture of us at the Honolulu Airport when they arrived.
   

The first thing we did is go to Yardhouse in Waikiki to eat... fish and veggies.. the champion's diet.

We cruised around the island and did lots of things, like hiking Koko Head Crater






But the most epic activity was the shark tour with North Shore Shark Adventures.  Choke sharks in the water...Rafa was convinced he could choke out the sharks...



Here's a video of us getting in the cage and checking out all da sharks.  Sorry for the lack of editing here...we were getting the most out of my girlfriend's Olympus waterproof camera... but if you watch closely you'll see Rafa arm barring Gui in the CAGE!!!

Stay tuned for the next blog post that will include info from the seminar and techniques that we learned... and our visit with BJ Penn!!!!!

Hau'oli Makahiki Hou!
