--Andrew Craig, UFC fighterI've known Travis for most of my time in the sport of mixed martial arts. He is honestly one of the best Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu black belts I've ever rolled with and has always been an inspiration. His dedication shows in his continued improvement as a Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu black belt competitor and instructor. This is evident in his students' performance in competition as well. Through commitment and dedication, this book shows us how the joy of something you're passionate about can lead to doors being opened that we never imagined accessible to us.
