Blog in Kuwait with BJJ Black Belt 4x MMA Champion Ray Elbe giving tips on diet, weight loss, health, fitness, traveling the world, and of course fighting.

"There is no satisfaction that can compare with looking back across the years and finding you've grown in self-control, judgment, generosity, and unselfishness."
– Ella Wheeler Wilcox

Now that you've found my blog, I hope you continue to follow! Witness me travel the world teaching and competing in Muay Thai (Thai Boxing), Brazilian Jiu Jitsu (BJJ), and Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) as I meet new friends and discover cultures from all walks of life.

As an 18 year old kid if you would have told me at 30 I would be a professional fighter with over 200 stamps in my passport, I would never have believed you. Looking through the years of this blog, I hardly believe it now!
