An Over/Under Segment

This past week I did an interview/challenge with Verbal Tap Podcast hosts Raf Esparza and Kevin T Phillips for the “Over/Under Kevin” segment.

The segment consists of Kevin and a chosen guest selecting who they think will win each bout on the upcoming UFC PPV card.  In this particular case it’s regarding August 1st’s UFC 190: Rousey vs. Correira, and the guest was none other than myself.  It all started with a call-out directed at Kevin, which resulted in Raf reaching out to me and getting the ball rolling.  Without spoiling what is to come, check out Verbal Tap Episode 127 here, and don’t forget to subscribe and rate them on iTunes!

Alternate plans

You may have noticed that I haven’t been sticking to my usual schedule here.  I’ve been writing for my sponsor Triangle Athleticshttp://www.triangleathletics.com/blogs/news over the past few weeks, putting out BJJ-related content and leaving me free to post everything else here.  I’ve got a few posts in the barrels for both sites, I just have to spend a little more time on the ones for here.

In the meantime, head on over to their site and check out the blog posts!

First Aid

Well, I spent my weekend gaining my Standard First Aid certificate with CPR-C and AED training for school purposes.  It was a 2-day course put on by St. John’s Ambulance, and I had a great instructor.  Having an active certification is a prerequisite to graduate from my program, and also required before I start my fieldwork courses.  All I have to do is submit my proof – a.k.a.  my certificate – in person to the Sport Science Department office and I will be good to go!

It feels good to have current First Aid knowledge, and a great resource book on hand to reference.  Given all of the training that I do, I cannot say for certain which of my teammates are trained as well; knowing that I am relieves a large burden.  My next step is the purchase of a proper First Aid kit and a few other accessories, especially the ever-versatile triangle bandages.

Canada Day!

I always want to sing the Canada Man song by the Arrogant Worms, but I’ll try to save you from my flat singing voice.  Let’s raise a glass to our great country instead!

Happy Canada Day eh?!
