Just got my first taste of BJJ (Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu) today. Whew! I didn’t realize how tough it was. Those MMA guys sure make it look so easy. Those ninja moves and close-quarter grappling sure come in handy for street fighting or self-defense. Looking forward to Day 2! ???????????????????? Thanks to Che Cuizon (Coach Che) Coach Ron Tongol Mac and Coach Eric my kababata from Villa Teresa also sa buong team!!

That same day, he posted snippets of him and his "good old showbiz friends" Sid Lucero and Richard Gutierrez in action.
He wrote, "Not only did I get the rare chance of reuniting with some good old showbiz friends, we also did so while sweating it out—trading kicks and punches, pushing ourselves to the limit—all in our quest towards conquering our fears and battling our own inner demons."
Leading their training, according to Baron's post, was Sid—who has a blue belt, the second adult rank in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu.
