LAS VEGAS, Nev. - If its Saturday, it must be Budapest for Anthony Bourdain.But the globe-trotting author, chef and TV host will find time from filming of his Emmy-winning CNN show Parts Unknown this weekend to connect via computer to Sin City to catch UFC 182.Thanks to wife Ottavia, the 58-year-old Bourdain has fallen in love with Brazilian jiu-jitsu. At home in New York, he trains daily at the famed Renzo Gracie Academy.And increasingly when Im on the road, I train at wherever the best place is and if theres no best place, Ill take what I can get, he said in a telephone interview this week.But increasingly as I make the shooting schedule and put together a list of destinations, in the back of my mind Im thinking Can I train when Im there? and if it is a place where they do have an academy, I try to arrange my shooting schedule so if I can wake up very early in the morning and go roll for an hour or two, I will.Training venues have included Scotland, Los Angeles, Miami and South Korea.The discipline required by the sport is a far cry from Bourdains hedonistic days as a chef, documented in his 2000 memoir Kitchen Confidential.Thanks to BJJ, the lanky Bourdain reckons he has lost 30 pounds and Im easily in the best shape of my life.That really wasnt the intention at all. I didnt get into this for my health. But I thinks its a byproduct of (when) you come in every day, try real hard not get your ass kicked.Bourdain gave up smoking when daughter Ariane, who also trains in BJJ, was born in 2007. Jiu-jitsu has prompted moderation in other quarters.The man who relishes eating parts of animals most of us cant even identify says he watches his diet ahead of training.Look Ive had to make adjustments, he acknowledged. If I know with absolute certainty, as I do, that just about every day Im going to be waking up early in the morning, going into the academy and getting my ass kicked by some 22-year-old wrestler, yeah it certainly changed my alcohol intake, I can tell you.Im not drinking anywhere near what I used to and Im much moderate in my eating habits — because you really pay a price for misbehaviour immediately on the mat. You feel it and you pay a price in physical pain and humiliation.Jiu-jitsu is a sport where the learning never ends, which appeals to Bourdain.Its a lot like being back in the kitchen again, in my first days as a young cook where I was the worst cook in the kitchen and there was so much to learn, said Bourdain, fresh from a workout. And every day that I did manage to learn some tiny technical detail that made my game better, that was the kind of satisfaction that I havent had in a while.He also enjoys the very unique community that the sport attracts.People in the BJJ community tend to be very nice and very generous.If possible, Italian-born Ottavia is even more consumed by jiu-jitsu. The 36-year-old trains daily with John Danaher, who helped UFC welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre confound opponents in the Octagon.Ottavia became interested in martial arts after seeing Gina Carano fight on an Elite XC in Newark in 2008. She took up kickboxing and then jiu-jitsu, earning her purple belt this week.Ottavia, who competes in grappling competitions, described her addiction to jiu-jitsu in a January 2013 column for vice.coms Fightland.The most important thing in my life is my family, but BJJ definitely comes second, she wrote. Pretty clothes, shoes, bags, perfect hair, vacations, partying — all those things I once cared about no longer seem so important. As long as I can keep training, Im happy.She trains seven days a week, five hours a day, adding standup classes, Sambo and anything she thinks will help her game.Bourdain took up the sport after his wife booked him a one-hour private class for an article she was writing on the least likely people to ever show an interest in Brazilian jiu-jitsu.The fact I made it through alive made me feel good, Bourdain recalled. And I decided to tenuously try another one and then at some point, shortly after that, I got hooked.In a lot of ways, it is like writing a book. Every day you write your way into a corner, you create a problem for yourself and you spend the rest of the day solving it.He recently earned a fourth stripe as a white belt, one step away from a blue belt.I have to be realistic. Im 58, I will never be winning medals against people a third my age. Jiu-jitsu will not make me younger or smarter — well maybe smarter. I will probably not live long enough to ever get my black belt. But I really deeply enjoy the process of sucking a little less at something every day.I like the fact that its a really steep and endless learning curve. And that its a hard thing. Its easily the hardest thing Ive ever done in my life. Its certainly the most challenging physically ever.Bourdain avoids his wife on a mat these days, saying shes too good for him. But the couple, who met on a blind date set up by friend and fellow chef Eric Ripert, enjoy the UFC together. The UFC is a preferred date night for my wife and I whenever we can, whenever Im not travelling for my show, he said. If theres a UFC event, chances are were front row.I think its fair to say were super-fans.---Follow @NeilMDavidson on Twitter Tim Ream Jersey . Coming off a 6-0 drubbing at Chelsea on Saturday, Arsenal endured another demoralizing result after rallying for a 2-1 lead -- only to concede a fluke equalizer. Ethan Horvath Jersey . -- During Kansas shootaround on Wednesday before the Jayhawks faced Oklahoma, coach Bill Self told Wayne Selden Jr. ... sa-jersey/. Weise left the arena with a splint on his wrist and underwent tests to determine whether the tendon is torn. Winger Travis Moen will also miss some time after suffering a concussion in Mondays contest. Perry Kitchen Jersey . The same cant be said of last Saturdays 2-2 draw at Olympic Stadium against a very weakened New York Red Bulls side and one which had three stalwarts in Henry, Cahill and Olave back home in Harrison, NJ. Nick Rimando Jersey . The Brazil defender was substituted 13 minutes into Wednesdays 2-1 Copa del Rey win at Athletic Bilbao because of a right hamstring problem. Scans revealed a second grade tear which could keep him out for a reported four to six weeks.VANCOUVER - The Calgary Stampeders and Hamilton Tiger-Cats square off Sunday in the Grey Cup at B.C. Place Stadium. A look at six potential difference makers (excluding quarterbacks) in the CFL title game.Jon Cornish: The native of New Westminster, B.C., was the CFLs rushing leader with 1,082 yards despite only playing nine games. He didnt play in either of Calgarys contests versus Hamilton this year — both wins for the Stampeders — but the six-foot, 209-pound Cornish averaged over 120 yards rushing when he was in the lineup. Cornish is a dual threat as he had four catches for 120 yards and a TD in the Stampeders 43-18 win over Edmonton in the West Division final.Marquay McDaniel: The six-year veteran was Calgarys receiving leader this season with 54 receptions for 792 yards and four TDs. The six-foot, 206-pound McDaniel is neither Calgarys biggest nor fastest receiver but he has developed a knack for making the big play. He had 1,047 yards and eight TD grabs last year, both career highs. McDaniels first three CFL seasons were with Hamilton.Shawn Lemon: Lemons second season with Calgary has been impressive. The six-foot-two, 251-yard defensive end had a team-high 13 sacks to anchor a pass rush that had 50 sacks on the season. Lemons emergence came during a season the club was minus its top pass rusher, Charleston Hughes, for much of the campaign.Brandon Banks: The five--foot-seven, 153-pound kick-returner was a one-man show in the East Division final, returning two punts for TDs and amassing a playoff-record 226 return yards in Hamiltons 40-24 home win over Montreal.dddddddddddd. Banks took a third punt back for a touchdown but it came back due to a penalty. The former Washington Redskin is a threat every time he touches the ball, be it returning kicks, as a receiver or on running plays.Ted Laurent: Its unlikely fans will notice Laurents impact on Sundays game but he could be an important figure for Hamilton. The six-foot-one, 301-pound defensive tackle is a force inside, often commanding a double-team that leaves the other defensive lineman one-on-one with the remaining offensive linemen. The 26-year-old Montreal native had a career-high nine sacks in his first season with the Ticats.Justin Medlock: The Ticats 31-year-old punter/kicker converted 44-of-50 field goals this season (88 per cent) and finished second in CFL scoring with 172 points. Medlock had a significantly better year than Calgarys Rene Paredes (33-of-45 field goal, 73.3 per cent) and his season-long boot of 52 yards was five better than Paredes. Medlock hit all five field goals he tried in his only regular-season appearance at B.C. Place Stadium, a 36-29 Ticats loss Aug. 8. Medlock wont have to worry about weather as the B.C. Place roof will be closed. Cheap NFL Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys Wholesale NFL Jerseys Jerseys From China Wholesale NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
