“Jiujitsu is a spiritual activity that keeps me in line physically and mentally. Jiujitsu is therapy and healing… You need a feeling of daily improvement, validation that you’ve achieved something.” (Matt, 37, USA)
Over bún đậu mắm tôm and Bia Hà Nội Matt and I discussed the perfect day.
Matt is a Hawaiian-American who has lived in Saigon for 10 years. He owns a food franchise in Vietnam and runs Saigon jiujitsu.
His perfect day:
- 5 healthy, clean meals
- Beautiful nature
- Shared, elevated experiences with loved ones
- Single-malt whiskey
“The most important things to me in life are family, friends, jiujitsu and business. Everything I do for work and business is for friends and family.”
