Earlier this year I did this illustration for the Mat-Megalodon Batch for the Arm Bar Soap Company. This painting was super fun as I got to paint a giant great white shark with a galleon ship! I’m currently working on an illustration for a new product to debut later this year from ABSC can’t wait show it to everyone.

In this video I am drilling some no Gi Triangles. The Triangle is one of my least favorite submissions how ever it is still a very dangerous submission that must be drilled and studied lest ye fall pray to its trappings.
My friend Brandon Kiser Posted this drill on his Instagram I thought it looked cool so we trained it.
My current job has kept me from posting as frequently as I’d like to. I’m still training every week here’s some light sparring from a training session last week. We work through several very unorthodox postitions including so leg attacks, knee bars, double wrist locks and head scissors.
