    He was/still in Holyoke MA today doing a promotion for his schools on the east coast. I got his autograph and a pic. He is a really cool guy; very relaxed.

    My friend and I were waiting in the parking lot for him to show up. There was this area that was all blocked off for VIP parking and shit. We heard he was going to be there from 1-3 but it turns out the "event" started at 3. So we waited in the lot for a while. Then at like 2:50 we decided to go in. At this point it started to rain pretty hard and there was still no sign of Royce. We go in and ask if he was still coming, the lady at the desk said yes. So then we go back outside underneath a canopy and chill for a bit. Then as we are walking back in, Royce comes out and we are just like, :eek3: lol.

    There is this jiu jitsu tourney happening in Rhode Island tomorrow! You should check it out. It's free to watch and like 30-40 bucks to fight... Winners go to MA and fight in ultimate college MMA bout.

    Nah. I don't do jits. My bro does though. He trains at Gonzaga's school in Ludlow right now. But he is most likely going to switch to Gracie's in Agawam. My brother and I roll every now and then though.

    I met him at our last BJJ tourney. He seemed disinterested in being there. He signed some shit and took some pictures, but he didn't seem real up on being there.

    He seemed really cool today. I think it's because he had people there that he knew. He was laughing and having a good time :dunno:

    the advanced 80$ seminar included such ground breaking techniques as the armbar from guard and the kimura/sit up sweep combo :hsugh:
