Eric Acha is a Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Black Belt and is the owner and founder of Peninsula Self Defense in Redwood City, CA. He is also a former police officer with over 20 years experience protecting and serving the people of the Bay Area. Eric has an amazing story which I am extremely honored and humbled to be able to help to tell to the world. If you have the opportunity to spend any time with him at his academy -- do it. Like his mentor Jean Jacques, Eric is a very thoughtful and knowledgable instructor that I am very glad to call a friend. His journey is interesting and his story is extremely heart felt. Thanks very much to Eric and his family for making time in his busy schedule to come and record this episode. It is very much appreciated .
