Starting my long journey home to Ireland so taking a moment to reflect on and be grateful for a truly amazing experience in beautiful Australia. Ever since I was a kid I've wanted to visit but was never able to afford it or find the time to go. I want to thank everyone who came along to my talks in Sydney and Melbourne plus my seminar at @sbgaustralia without you this would not have been possible so a huge Thank You! While there I got to visit many beautiful places but highlight for me was meeting some real heroes like @johnwayneparr , @danielkellyjudo , @rocknrumble , @anthonyperosh . They really epitomized to me what I hoped an 'Aussie Bloke' would be. Hard working, humble, tough and self reliant. They certainly did not disappoint. Special mention to my first real BJJ/MMA technical coach Ben Power who many many years ago, before I was SBG, walked into The Shed and really opened my eyes to what a real martial artist was capable of doing with his empty hands….and all with a smile. While here I regrettably missed Brian's stellar performance on Bellator and of course Artem's upcoming fight on UFC. In +15yrs I've not missed a fighters fight due to 'personal holidays' so this was not easy to do but unfortunately this trip was planned months in advance and that's how the dates fell. Finally thank you to Mel, Pete, Lynn and Angie for putting it altogether and of course the beautiful Orlagh who eases my public speaking anxiety and made the trip perfect.
