Why would I choose to drive 45 Hours from Portland, Maine to Las Vega, Nevada!? This whole trip was birthed out of necessity and powered by madness...

The North South Chronicles - Episode 12 - Rolling Out

It's crazy how much can happen in a single day at the Origin Immersion Camp. This episode is all from my final full day at Camp. Including mini-interviews with Dedeco Almeida, Dean Lister, Mac Lethal, JP Dinnell, Pete Roberts and Jocko Willink! Also, it captures a bit of my training with Dedeco and an entire, un-edited round with Mac Lethal! What a crazy week! But... the craziest part of the trip was coming up next.... And I didn't even know it. --------------- SUBSCRIBE to follow the Journey --------------- Links: Because Jitsu Podcast: Spotify - https://open.spotify.com/show/7ohTnDU44EU9VMoQCnUkwL?si=2139e2052a55481d Apple Music - https://podcasts.apple.com/ca/podcast/because-jitsu-podcast/id1555590611 Download - https://becausejitsupodcast.libsyn.com/website Origin USA: www.OriginUSA.com and use Promo Code DrewJitsu for 10% OFF Everything!

The North South Chronicles - Episode 8 - Twin Paths

After all the adventures in Drayton Valley, we took to the road again. Destination Leduc, Alberta. About an hour east. Specifically, to Leduc BJJ. A long time friend and another OG of the Alberta Jiu-Jitsu Scene - Rob Thompson - invited me to run a seminar at his gym and train with his guys for the week leading up to it. As you'll see in the video, we had a blast, got to be a part of a very special moment, and ran a kick ass seminar on the Rear Crucifix to a packed out room that filled up from at least 4 different gyms and 5 black belts total! There are so many similarities between my journey in jiu-jitsu and Rob's. The more I learned and experienced from and in Leduc BJJ, the more it felt like it was a Twin Path that we both walked down. --------------- SUBSCRIBE to follow the Journey --------------- Links: Leduc Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu: https://www.leducbjj.com Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/because_jitsu/ https://www.instagram.com/drew.weatherhead/ Because Jitsu: www.Because-Jitsu.com DrewJitsuOnline: www.DrewJitsuOnline.com BJJ Fanatics: https://bjjfanatics.com/collections/all/products/the-crucifix-manual-by-drew-weatherhead Jiu-Jitsu X: https://jiujitsux.com/product-category/instructor/drew-weatherhead/ Origin USA: www.OriginMaine.com and use Promo Code DrewJitsu for 10% OFF Everything! #BJJ #Jiujitsu #LeducBJJ #Leduc #Grappling #Alberta #Canada #Gym #Academy #Vlog #TravelLife #NorthSouth #NorthAmerica #USA #Chronicles

One of the first road trips in the RV led us up to Drayton Valley, Alberta. The owner of SBG Drayton Valley, Brad Kelly, graciously invited us to come up to train, run a seminar and experience the area. Brad really took care of us with off the charts hospitality and gave us a very unique ground floor view of the community and the history of it. Including his own personal story of trying to manage a Jiu-Jitsu Gym during the unprecedented 2020 and 2021 Lockdowns. Also featured is Dawn Kratz. An adaptive grappler who's 8 year journey to Blue Belt forced her to experiment and overcome the hurdles presented to her from living with Cerebral Paulse.

The North South Chronicles - Episode 6 - Been A While

EDIT: (Don't let the run time fool you, it's a half hour episode with a bunch of raw competition footage at the end.) In this Episode of the North South Chronicles, I had the unique and timely pleasure of being able to coach 4 of my Students at the first local Tournament Since they stopped in February of 2020. I was literally only in the area for another 24 hours after this event. The timing couldn't have been better. Two of my Blue Belts and Two of my White Belts competed. Both Blue Belts got their Belt over the Pandemic between lockdowns. So it was both of their first competitions at that rank. Both of my White Belts had never competed before. They'd never had the chance until now! It was all very cathartic, as it was a lot of firsts for them juxtaposed by a poignant last for me. As I won't see them for a while now. Life is so strange and unexpected. Everything in the last while has really highlighted how important and special each day really is. --------------- SUBSCRIBE to follow the Journey --------------- Links: Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/because_jitsu/ https://www.instagram.com/drew.weatherhead/ Because Jitsu: www.Because-Jitsu.com DrewJitsuOnline: www.DrewJitsuOnline.com BJJ Fanatics: https://bjjfanatics.com/collections/all/products/the-crucifix-manual-by-drew-weatherhead Jiu-Jitsu X: https://jiujitsux.com/product-category/instructor/drew-weatherhead/ Origin USA: www.OriginMaine.com and use Promo Code DrewJitsu for 10% OFF Everything! #BJJ #Jiujitsu #Tournament #Competition #Grappling #CentralAlberta #Canada #Gym #Academy #Vlog #TravelLife #NorthSouth #NorthAmerica #USA #Chronicles
