Projekt Label fighter Chad “Savage” George (10-4) was recently invited to Japan to train with the camp of Japanese Shooto legend Rumina Sato. Being that Chad has a fight coming up on Nov. 14 against Greg Guzman at “Called Out MMA 2,” he saw this as the perfect opportunity to train with some of the top lighter weight fighters in the world, and as a special treat for us he is keeping a blog of his trip. Be sure to check back each day to see how things are going with Chad during this very unique experience.
Today was real relax aside from the casual grappling I did this morning for about an hour with Nobu. We woke today, had coffee, and then opened Roots.
After the light training this morning Rumina picked Nobu and I up from Roots with his family for a beautiful ride up the mountain. Once we got to the top, we had some delicious Udon and then saw an amazing waterfall at the camp site for the legend of Kintaro followed by drinking from a strength fountain!
Once finished, we headed back to Odawara to relax and prepare for the long, hard day of training tomorrow. Shooto Lightweight Champion Lion Takeshi will be coming to Roots with his gym mates – what a way to end the trip!
I took a bunch of photos! enjoy!
