So now the tournament is done.
Unfortunately, I didn't get that much help about the donation.
However, entire event was successful,
I think it's all good.
Now I gotta report how it was...
It was only two matches but I won both anyway!
The picture loos ki8nda stupid.
Last time, when I won the good fight tournament ship,
I looked like so serious in the podium.
a friend of the one of opponents made fun of me like,
"This guy look totally exhausted and doesn't even look happy"
So I made up my mind to goof around this time.
And Professor Renan Borges won their division!!
That was awesome, day!
Besides Jiu Jitsu,
Max Barret, of sityodtong
and my friend
William Graustuck from Brazilian To Team
also won their MMA fight!!
I'll share some pics and videos of my two matches here.
Second match was filmed in slow motion accidentally. lol
It was a bit annoying to watch.
But You can see entire thing going on!!
Thanks for Anthony Whitney

Now I'm drinking sakeeee!!
I just figured out I can't upload any videos with the service I have for now. Come visit my Facebook if you'd like to watch.

As I mentioned a few times before,
I train martial arts as a hobby.
This Saturday, I'm competing in the charity event,
"Tap Cancer Out"
This event is made to sup[port people
fight against cancer.
All profits goes to donation.
this is their webpage and the Facebook page.
When I signed up the competition,
I was also given "my page" to call donation.
Which is this

There are people who you can help.
They need your help.
You don't have to, but if you can,
I won't make any benefit out of this.
some proverb says,
"Best way to get a thing is to give something."
When you can do something for somebody,
Let's do together!
There is one more thing happened today...
Earthquake attacked people in Italy and Myanmar (aka Burma).
Both places were seriously damaged
Many people were unfortunately killed.
I have to send my condolences to both place...
Japan is still struggling with the damaged caused by current disasters happened in recent years...
Something is going on inside the earth...
I hope everyone who experienced the tragedy will be alright.
It's been almost a month since last updates.
It's very easy for me to slack updates...
So I have a lot to tell now.
The guitar competition was already finished up.
I made to the third stage and that's all I could get.
Couldn't proceed to semi-final, but
I think it's all good as a piece written in a week or so...
Since then, my business is kinda quiet down...
while it's been so calm, funny thing happened.
I went to Cape with Manny and Brian some Friday.
That was awesome vacation
it was still bit cold and even rained!!
Then I met a guy called Ivan.
He is a professional photographer running
website/facebook page called:
"Portraits of America"
And so we all got interviewed with him and took a few photos.
I talked about a little bit of my life story.
Like how and why I came to U.S.A...
It took a while since we got an interview...
It recently came up on his page, so I'd like to share!
-> website "portraits of america"
-> Facebook page
Sometimes unexpected funny things happened.
Funny things may always happens unexpectedly.
That's probably why it's funny.
It seems like,
I got more people who pay attention to my music.
I'm writing now!
I'm writing a couple new guitar pieces and
orchestrating for a medium size ensemble now.
Those pieces for a corroboration with the sound engineer in U.K!
I'll let you know the details of the project later
when it actually comes to happen.
At the end, I took out "store" page from this website.
I think wasn't really effective for my business.
"Mt. Oe" film was officially registered to U.S copyright office
after several month.
I might just open the film in public soon.
Things are changing but still going!
Enjoy rest of summer days everyone!
Just saying random things...
