I am beyond grateful to the fighters who trust in me to lead their careers to the next level. Love them all so much! #Repost @filipinoflashmma
・・・ “The good and the great are only separated by the willingness to sacrifice.” That’s what makes our head coach @santinodefranco
a coach of a lifetime. Coach of the year is too under appreciated. The hours and hours of pushing his athletes don’t go unnoticed. A coach can show you technique, timing, and all of the above. Santino will remind us the most important. That we do what we do because we love it and how crucial self-belief is. I can only speak for myself but I’ve seen lightbulbs spark everyday in the training room, I can’t possibly feel alone. 2019 is ours for the taking. We have more people on the mat than I’ve ever seen before and I invite all to come in and get some work with us @fightready

I love wrapping hands. A proper hand wrap can mean the difference between winning and losing, and keep fighters from long layoffs (due to healing hands) in between fights. Fighters regularly compliment my hand wrap and ask where I learned to wrap. The answer: trial and error. Well, mostly. I watched how my hands were wrapped while I was a fighter, and tried to emulate what was done to me. From there, I added, subtracted, changed and morphed my gauze and tape technique into what it is today to protect the money makers for a fighter. ______________________________________ #handwraps #boxingtraining #muaythai #handwrapping #cutman #coach #mma #ufc
I came across this life sized chess board and set earlier today at the Biltmore (iphone cameras are amazing these days), and it made me think about how much chess we play in our lives. Chess is a game of strategy, and one needs to think about the risks and rewards of, not only a single move, but the butterfly effect of each move—numerous moves away. Taking the rook now may seem like a good idea, but it may leave you vulnerable 10 moves away and, conversely, sacrificing the bishop now may seem painful, but 10 moves later, it may pay dividends. Just like chess, life is a game of choices, and each of those choices has consequences. If you consistently make good choices, chances are you’ll win more games than you’ll lose, but if you regularly make “bad” short-sighted choices, you’ll find your king tipped over and check mated more than you like. ___________________________________#chess #life #chesslife #gooddecisions #bebetter #mma #ufc #checkmate
Jan 19th @henry_cejudo
will upset the odds makers once again. People dont understand what kind of an athlete (both mentally and physically) Henry is. Come Jan 19th, they will have to start to recognize his abilities. I am confident in him, and the team we’ve put together for this camp. ______________________________________#ufc #mma #champcamp #champion #theydontknow #shocktheworld #thebest
A little practice for the recital.
