What was the NSAC thinking when they suspended UFC fighter Nick Diaz for weed? Nobody knows. They must be nuts. That's why I called them the nuts sac. After that, we were lucky enough to talk to Ryron Gracie at the HHCF HQ in Fremont, CA. In this interview we talk about jiu-jitsu and a tool for non-violence, bullying, and what sets Ronda Rousey apart from her competition.This is a good one. Buckle up!!!
After a few weeks off, the BC family gets hit with a unique hard hitting exclusive. Adisa Banjoko shares details on the impact recent incidents of gun violence have taken on him. He shares the toll it took on him mentally, spiritually and physically. Walk with him as he travels to Hawaii in search of personal clarity and meets a very unique individual near the shores of Waikiki Beach.
Listen to him speak with Jiu-Jitsu practitioner Vince Krause. Mr. Krause shares how the art of jiu-jitsu bonded he and acting icon Paul Walker as students of the gentle art. Bishop Chronicles takes you on a deep journey that speaks not only to Walkers' dedication to perfecting the art, but also his efforts in perfecting his character as a human being. The duo spent several years training in Hawaii, LA, Atlanta, Puerto Rico and South Africa during the filming of the Fast and Furious film series.
Between the conversation you will also learn deep aspects of skateboarding culture, speed chess in Hawaii, and the unifying force of jiu-jitsu. You have never seen this side of Paul Walker, and you can only see it here on BC.
