Today was bitter sweat. It was a fun class full of people but it was also Eric's last night training with us. He is moving to Grant Pass, OR. Luckily he is only 2 hours away and can visit often. He will be missed everyday that he is gone.

On January 10th

Their is nothing better then hanging out with friends. On Sunday 4 of ‪‎MWAMA's‬ grapplers join the guys at ‪‎Higs Gym‬ to celebrate Byron's Birthday. He did 38 rounds of rolling for his 38 years of life. To say the least....we had a blast.

All martial arts training should only be used to better ones self and as a path to higher understanding of ones self.  Martial arts should never be used with the intention of purposely seeking to cause harm to others.
