How Eddie Bravo balances BJJ, fatherhood, and chemtrails


The list of prominent MMA fighters that Eddie Bravo has trained includes Vinny Magalhaes, George Sotiropoulos, Matt Horwich, Nik Lentz, Duane Ludwig, Ronda Rousey, and Dan Hardy.  Bravo, an advanced Jean-Jacques Machado black belt, creator of 10th Planet Jiu-Jitsu, and successful musician, is a 21st century renaissance man.  He has also been a frequent guest on good friend, Joe Rogan’s “Joe Rogan Experience” podcast (nearly 20 episodes), and now he has a successful podcast of his own.  It has been a perfect forum for Bravo to have on guests and discuss his other, more obtuse, obsessions (cannabis, chemtrails, and government conspiracies), but he always makes sure to give us plenty of MMA and Jiu-Jitsu discussion as well.

In this Jack Brown audio interview, Bravo discusses the following and more:
On early experiences with martial arts: “[I] saw UFC 2 and decided to do Jiu-Jitsu” and “I saw Ken Shamrock’s instructional videos and started doing toeholds.”

On submitting Royler Gracie via triangle, back in 2003:
“It was fascinating finding out in Abu Dhabi that some of the stuff I had been working on ended up panning out.”

On how to defeat arch enemy, Renato Laranja:
“I don’t think I’ll ever be able to defeat him” and “there are a few that are douchebags and Renato is like all of them wrapped into one.”

On being a guest on the JRE podcast:
“I love just chopping it up with Joe.”

On how to manage having a child, while being an instructor and musician, owning and running businesses, doing podcasts, following chemtrails and other conspiracies 24/7, and still partying:
“The iPhone 5!”

You know what has jumped since the mid 90's? Paranoia websites like infowars. It's plausible that truthers weren't looking up until the beloved "news" sources told them to.You obviously feel chemtrails have been spread above you. How has the weather changed in your area? How has it altered your life in a way that would benefit the NWO?

Contrail traces have supposedly been on the decrease during the last 10 years.It doesn't seem plausible that air traffic suddenly jumped suddenly high since '97-98 to current levels and now chem/aerosol trails are way more prevelant since the mid 40's/early 90's levels...Control the weather and you control the planet.

Majic Sam,Considering contrails have been around for decades and documented in the 40's it's safe to bet that you haven't seen many clear skies either.You see more contrails because there are more planes/air traffic.

Back up,Black.Name calling is weak if that is all you have,whigger...Judging by your tone,and likely being under 30 y.o.,probably don't know what a clear sky once looked like.
