    CARBS are such a source of debate these days, and over the last 16 years we have helped hundreds of people ENJOY and learn how to CYCLE them for the best results. We just had a family trip and had to dine out while taking our son to a NINJA competition. So w hile we are traveling, eating out and FINDING cool restaurants and also GOOD coffee.

    and it is a super simple strategy that works incredibly well. OK, what is CARB CYCLING , simple you focus certain days on eating lower ....

  • See what Chuck Norris's Brazilian Jiu Jitsu instructor has to say about EMPIRE.

    I am lucky to have trained under the legend and 9th Degree Black Belt Carlos Machado. FUN fact when Chuck Norris
    started training in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, he just loved it. In fact he could have chosen anyone to train him from the famous Gracie family....but he chose Carlos as he is the best. He built a special training area on the set of WALKER TEXAS RANGER
    and had Carlos move from California to Texas so he could train full time in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. How AWESOME is that. I am honored to be a Black Belt under Carlos and continue training with him to this day. ....
