Prior to heading out from Penang, Malaysia I had done a lot of research on where else to visit while I was in Malaysia. I had initially picked the island of Langkawi, Malaysia because I had read that it had the best SCUBA diving on the west coast. Since, as many know, SCUBA diving is another of my passions I thought it would be a great place to check out for a week, do some diving and get plenty of beach therapy before heading out to Cambodia in March.
Yes, I realized that there was no BJJ on the island but, I felt like I could handle a week on the beach without too much trouble. In the few weeks leading up to our trip to Langkawi, I had been training a lot between Monarchy MMA, Budo Academy, Kombative Fitness, and team Armada so a few days in the sun sounded great.
