BJ Penn's Weekly Pics – Master Tom Callos and I

When I was 17 years old ( and not doing much but drinking and fighting down at the beach) this man (Tom Callos) moved in two houses down the road from my house. He had done a couple Gracie Jiu Jitsu lessons in Northern California and wanted to have some grappling partners to wrestle with at the local rec center… I didn’t want to do it but Tom persisted and I finally went to the rec center and Tom choked me and arm locked me… the rest is history.. Too bad im so outta shape in this pic :(.. other than that enjoying retirement and hanging out at the gym is always fun.
