Arrived In Japan! Road to Shooto

Arrived in Japan!

So I arrived in Japan on a Thursday and pretty much checked into the hotel and did nothing. Lounged around watched a movie and fell asleep. It is pretty cold here.

Checked my weight and as expected the flight over caused my body to swell and add some weight. Coach and I not too worried about it, we got a plan and putting it in action.

Since I have arrived and doing that initial check of weight I am on track to weigh in tomorrow on point.

First Full Day in Japan

Got up and did a lot of walking. Went to a Golds Gym to get a workout in and to do some drills with Coach Scott. Got some looks from the gym workers but we did our thing anyway.

Went sight seeing a lot today. Got to check out the Tokyo Tower which had some cool stuff inside. Japan is pretty chill. I did notice that there are a lot of little Coffee shops all over. Saw some Anime stuff which I thought was cool too.

Took a quick walk up the road looking at a store for something I needed and I felt the cold. It is definitely colder with the wind blowing as we walk. But made it back to warmth quickly!

Weigh Ins

Tomorrow is the official Weigh Ins for Shooto! It is at 2pm Japan time so about 7pm Hawaiʻi time. The excitement continues to build around this fight. I know I need to focus on what needs to be done once I enter that cage!

How am I feeling since I arrived?

I guess I can say I feel normal for the time being. Again, I am just focusing on the task at hand. This is a great opportunity for me and I know I need to put forth my best if I want more opportunities to come from this.

Thanks for all the support! It means a lot and I see it all on Social Media and even on these blogs. The support from all of you has been amazing and truly appreciated!
