Here’s a pretty sick vignette that Flywin Evolutions put together covering BJ Penn’s illustrious career that began in the 90s. A positive individual, great fighter and ambassador of the islands. We need more Hawaiians like BJ to help build legacies for not only themselves, but for our island and culture’s sake. This is a great look as it shows the keiki that there are many options out there, and many different encouraging paths to walk down, regardless if we’ve been stripped of our identity, culture and customs. For more info, visit bjpenn.com.

In the book, BJ discusses what the critics, fans and the rest of the World have always wanted to know, what influenced BJ to pursue a career in MMA, including his youth growing up “scrapping.” Please support local and purchase a copy to get insight on not just BJ’s life, but being able to comprehend the man known as The Prodigy.
