Let's talk about throwback. 9 year's ago Professor Ricardo called Date and I and told us Master Renzo accepted a fight against BJ Penn. Renzo's camp would be set up at RABJJ. This is when RABJJ was in flex gym, and hour and 30 minutes from my home. Ryan Grace (rip) and also Ralph Gracie flew in to help as well. Dante and I were Renzo's main sparring partner's.  I was 22 years old and a new purple belt. We would be there 5 days a week. Everyday Prof, Renzo, Ralph, and Ryan would ask me and Dante to spar before we started. I would not call it spar, we would fight! Lol. I mean hard, head kicks and all. This was entertainment for them for sure.  These were great memories and still to this day if my Professor or Master Renzo called on me I would be there no question asked. @renzograciebjj @ricardoalmeidabjj #renzograciebjj #rabjj #ripryan #loyalty #decade #itswhatwedid
