FIGHT NIGHT OKINAWA!

Last night was AWESOME! Some straight underground fight club type of shit. The event was put on by the MATURI Pride of Ryukyu. For ¥4000 we got great seats and ended up getting a refund due to the fighter we came to, his opponent didn’t show up so for his penalty he had to pay for our seats! The fights were in a club down in Naha that we had to go upstairs into. On the fight card there were 24 fights from some guys first fight all the way to almost pro! One United States Marine fought and Completely destroyed his opponent! For the main event the fighter brought out an Okinawan rapper that was actually really good even though I wasn’t sure what he was saying. Some fighters had signature entrances like getting slapped before getting it the ring, throwing their warm up jacket into the crowd but my favorite was the guy who rode a bicycle down the catwalk then got into the ring. It was a pimped out bicycle. The venue was nice with local food and a bar, also the turnout was great! I’m guessing about 200-300 people showed up. I took video of most of the fights and will be uploading the good ones and when I get the time I will make a highlight video of all the fights. After the fights I got in touch with the promoter about getting set up to fight at their next one November 12th. Hopefully not too hung over from my birthday on the 11th and the Marine Corps birthday on the 10th.

 

Big things happening!

Goodevening!

So some exciting new first is I was able to buy a van here in Okinawa. The process for military is a little different due to being in a foreign country and having United States and Japan agreements. I was approved for a license and a couple days later I bought a Nissan Elgrand for $500! Now I will be able to do the adventures I have been wanting to do more easily. I am excited to share them with you as they come about. My goal is one new adventure/post a week now.

Secondly I bought a set of snorkeling gear that came with a wetsuit, felt bottom boots, fins, gloves, snorkel, and a mask. I went with mid-level gear due to starting a dive certification course after I get back from some training in July. the wetsuit, boots, and gloves are AROPEC brand and the fins are MARES brand. The day I bought all of it we decided to go test it all out at the kind of hidden spot called Mermaid Grotto here in Okinawa. It’s about 35 minutes North of Futenma. Getting there was easy but the entrance to the water/beach area doesn’t look like much, mostly a trail cut through the thick brush but once you get into the actual area it’s absolutely beautiful! Clear waters, giant rock formations, and tons of coral with crevasses in it. Starting off getting to the water there were sea urchins everywhere so luckily I bought those good felt bottom boots! Once getting out into the deeper water it was filled with colorful fish and blue starfish. At first I wasn’t sure how I would like diving but now that I had a little taste of it I want to go back and explore the cravasses with an air tank on. I am definitely going to check out a few other spots that I have been researching. It is like looking into another world that not many people take the time to see.

Back after a small break!

Good Evening followers,

I took a small amount of time off due to being busy and really wanted to think I wanted to accomplish with my brand. Since last I updated I have been working hard towards getting my professional boxing license here in Japan! The fight is set for mid September so I will keep you posted on the training and how that is going! Today was announced that the Floyd Mayweather and Connor McGregor fight will be August 26th, I love both fighters but I am going to have to put my money on Floyd Money Mayweather. Something else I engaged in was my very first mud run back in April up at Camp Hansen on Okinawa. Myself and two other coworkers ran the 10Kilometer course which brought us over the ridges of some beautiful mountains! Also I went deep sea fishing with a group of guys I work with and ended up catching 68 total tuna. That was an experience of a lifetime being out on a small Japanese fishing boat catching fish after fish, a little weird not seeing any land at all. After we got off the boat we paid a couple of the locals to clean the fish for us for ¥300 a fish. We had them cut a couple up into sashimi and we ate it right there on the fishing docks. You can’t get any fresher than that! The rainy season is here now so getting outside is hard especially when I am at work on the one day it decides to be sunny a week. I am going to start updating more now that I have decided this is how I want to go about things! I appreciate all who engage with me and look forward to my next post.
