Get 30 Days Free At The Arena Gym in San Diego
Whenever James travels to San Diego from Australia, he comes to get some good training with Baret Yoshida at The Arena. This time he was getting ready for the ADCC trials.


James Walters:
I’m James Walters from Melbourne, Australia. I’m out here on a bit of a holiday, but preparing for ADCC trials in Japan, the Asia Oceania. The second trial’s there, so that’s the in 12 days from now. So I’ve been out here for two weeks now training at the arena. This is my fourth time I’ve been here. Yeah, always keep coming back.


Just the instruction’s really good. Learning from Baret has been really good. You can tell why it’s Baret Submissions because every chain of attacks and sequences always finishes with a really tough submission or kind of really crafty. But you never know where you’re going, especially when you roll with him. It’s like you’re in a trap from everywhere. Yeah. But the guys here are really tough. They’re always ready to throw down, dude’s work hard. And so it’s really good for preparation for ADCC trials because I know I’m going to be fit and ready for that. No one here is taking it easy, which is really cool. It’s really fun.
