he’s an english teacher, a father of two and a badass. vince is a mixed martial artist with UFC aspirations. i photographed him at practice a few weeks ago for a busan haps piece that i think might now be defunct. here are some snaps from his last practice before a brazilian jiu jitsu competition in seoul. this guy lost eight pounds in two days for this competition. he is an animal and a really nice fellow to boot.
vince has a blue belt with three stripes, meaning he’a about to graduate to purple, an intermediate ranking in BJJ. he’s been practicing this sport for about three years.
these exercises are basically all things that look exceptionally easy until you try to do them thirty times in a row and you quickly realize how weak you are.
learning some new moves.
and at last grappling.
