11 Years In…Brown Belt

I was honored to receive my Brown Belt in Gracie Jiu Jitsu on January 14, 2018 from my long time friend and jiu jitsu instructor, Ricardo Bayona.  One more step forward in this never ending journey.20180115_165648329_iOS

Mayweather and McGregor in London

The last spectacle…

Well…I’ll be honest.  I’m quite happy that the press tour is over.  I wish I would have been counting the number of expletives unleashed from the very start of the tour.

Who do you think won this exchange for the undisputed sh!t talking champion?

Coming soon: Shugyo Kimonos

We’re excited to announce an upcoming product….

Shugyo Pant Leg

The Shugyo brand kimono is a symbol that was born from the very heart of the MartialQuest concept.  It is simply a testament to our reason for being as a company in pursuit of quality and service through visionary brands, products, and services.

Japanese lore tells us stories of ancient journeys where warriors would test themselves to strengthen their minds, bodies, and spirits.  These journeys were to perfect their character as much as their martial techniques.  As Brazilian Jiu Jitsu practitioners we are no different as those warriors of ancient times.  We are all on our own separate path for various reasons that are truly our own.  Our paths have ultimately led us to the same destination along each of our journeys.  That is, of course, the jiu jitsu mat…our testing ground for various reasons that are truly and uniquely our own.

We welcome you to join us in representing your personal journey through our unique brand.
