I am nuts for Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and also train Mixed Martial Arts but only compete BJJ currently. I was in the Australian Army for 8 years and served in Afghanistan and East Timor. After years of doing nothing but working I'm looking to travel the world to go to different BJJ Gyms and focus most of my time in developing my skills in that. I also want to experience and learn different cultures and languages to expand my understanding of the world and not base my opinions on what’s feed to us on the TV and other forms of media. I generally don't like just putting this out there cause it really shouldn't matter but staying at each others places it may be a issue for some, so I am Bi completely straight acting so people don't often pick up onto it. If that's a issue for you then better we don't interact.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
When travelling who better to stay with than locals who know the place. Also a chance to make friends and learn and experience other cultures.
My main goal is to train Jiu Jitsu and MMA and there are usually only so many hours a day the gyms are open, or at least a limit in actual classes. I have quite a few skills and experience so why not share that with people who can use/appreciate them in exchange for learning the local cultures and some of the language. Better than sitting alone in a hotel room.

Music, Movies, and Books
I like all music depending on my mood but my favorite is old school slow rock like Chilli Peppers, LIVE, Blink 182, Silverchair (Old stuff) and really like 21 Pilots at the moment. Pink and Ed Sheeran are my Pop favorites.
I'm a mad 70's & 80's Horror buff back when they were fun and tacky and you build up the suspense to see the monsters... none of this CGI monsters you see in the first 5 seconds now days. Also a Sci Fi Geek and Anime Nut.
I like Fantasy/Adventure books and really enjoy the Rick Riordan books (He wrote the Percy Jackson's) all his books are about different Demi Gods set in the modern world, The backstories to the Gods and Monsters are historically accurate so you learn something and vary from Greek to Norse and Egyptian story lines.
Also like the Matthew Rielly Books, Aussie Author that write modern style Action Adventure Novels with a Indiana Jones cross Jason Bourne feel with Aussie hero's/main characters.
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
Afghanistan I guess, I don't know if I'd call it amazing but it was definitely a defining point in my life. Learnt what is truely important and I want to spend the rest of my life helping build people up and achieve their goals.
