Believers,

Let’s take a journey! I’m so excited to share this with you. Check out this video where Rener and I head DEEP into the Amazon Rainforest for the most amazing vacation of our lives!

We stayed at the Ariau Towers Jungle Lodge and interacted with squirrel monkeys, pink river dolphins, red-belly piranhas, cayman crocodiles, indigenous amazonian tribes and more!

Believers,

Last week Rener and I spent a week at Ramstein Air Force base with 120 participants of the GDS (Gracie Defense Systems) program, and it was a huge success! These participants not only learned the 15 most important self-defense techniques to deter and combat sexual assault scenarios, but they also learned the teaching methodologies used by the Gracie family so they can share this valuable information with fellow Airmen on base free of charge. More important than the physical techniques is the psychology of identifying a threat before it becomes imminent, and the confidence they gained to set and enforce personal boundaries in all life scenarios. It was an amazing group, and I have no doubt that they will continue to educate others about the untapped human power to deter and overcome sexual violence.

Last week Rener and I had to go to the Cayman Islands for jiu-jitsu seminars.

Ok… who am I fooling, it was the best possible “work” trip I could ever imagine! The Bootcamp Grand Cayman, a new Gracie Certified Training center run by Ronnie Hughes and owned by Dax Foster and the Foster family, brought us out to do some awesome kick-off seminars!

During my time in the WWE I was fortunate enough to visit Europe a couple of times, but in all the times that I was able to go, I never felt like I truly got the full experience. When all you get to see is hotels, airports, and arenas, it leaves so much to be desired, and going back to explore Europe properly has been something I’ve been wanting to do for a long time!

Two of my favorite countries that I wrestled in were Spain and Italy, so for this reason both were top of my list of dream vacation destinations!

It’s an understatement when I say that over the last few years I have done my fair share of travelling! One of the amazing things about the WWE, was that it gave me the opportunity to see the world… and along with that… lots and lots of packing. My friends actually tease me about my insane packing skills- how I’m literally able to fit my entire closet into one suitcase, in a matter of minutes lol.

I thought I’d share with you a few of my favorite packing/ travel tips, in the hopes that they’ll help you next time you go jet-setting.

Hafa Adai!

This past weekend I had the awesome opportunity to visit the National Guard on the beautiful island of Guam! I went to visit with our troops who were competing in the annual TAG’s cup- a competition held every year between the Army and Air Force guard teams. Softball games, truck pulls, obstacle races, and tire pushes… this was a serious group of athletes! I had a blast and everyone on Guam was extremely welcoming. I then had the opportunity to do a tour of the island, and I took a few pics!…

My crazy adventurous brother has embarked on yet another life changing  trip! This time he’s off to rural Peru, where he’s working in the rain forests to conduct research and write about his wild experiences and knowledge of the area in a blog for a well-known eco-tourism company.

I could not be prouder of him!
