    Enson, I just watched the HBO Real Sports segment on fukushima and I've gotta say, If what they're reporting is true, it's quite disappointing and unsettling. Im going to assume you haven't seen it yet, and give the gist of it. Because of the upcoming olympics in tokyo, the government has decided to pretend that everything is under control in Fukushima and that it's business as usual. When in reality, they've not got the cleanup under control whatsoever. Compared to Chernobyl, which is the only other disaster in human history that can compare, it's quite distressing to see that in the USSR they blocked all of humanity and businesses from ever re-entering an area thousands of square miles around the plant, meanwhile, Japan has resumed life as if nothing happened. Going so far as to have kids back in school within the fallout zone. This is quite disturbing. Could you tell us more about what you're doing to help, or point us in the right direction to help out ourselves? I'm sure you have lots to say on this topic. Are there any interviews or podcasts more recent than the Rogan one where you dive into this topic? Sounds to me like the japanese government is living in denial and playing a very fatal game.

    Yes that is all true. A community of 2000 families that I was bringing supplies to for 7 years was suddenly moved back into their home next to the nuclear plant. I've drove in to those towns trying to hook up with them again but couldn't find them. I even noticed that most of the houses, because it was uncared for for 7+ years was actually not livable. The crazy thing is that the radiation levels are still as high as it was when the meltdown first happened. I'm currently on my 57th mission up north to help the people visiting an orphanage and an old folks home.
    It's a very sad situation up in North Japan

    I'll be in Hawaii from February 11-19 at my shop if anyone wants to come down and custom a bracelet or just say hi.

    I thought one type of radiation had an 8 yr half life, so if the levels are the same, maybe more is coming out.

    I thought the news said they keep producing more and more radioactive water and don't have anywhere to put it. You'd think with all the high tech robots, they'd figure something out to fix it.

    Off topic. But your fight with heath herring. Do you consider that a horrible stoppage?
    I thought it was bad but I have the opportunity to ask the man. Theee MAN. Himself.

    Yes it was much too fast. In fact the last 2 knees he threw didn't even hit me square. Apparently because I went into the fight with an infection in both eyes the ref was told to stop the fight at the first sign of trouble. Even with that in mind it the stoppage was way too early. Life's a bitch sometimes.

    Did you ever wonder how high you could have climbed in PRIDE FC if you emphasized takedowns and sub/GNP?

    Among the current fighters, who do you enjoy watching?

    Good luck to you.
    Enson, do you know the pet situation in the area?
    I know you helped out the strays a while back.

    Used to see people collecting donations for an animal shelter on the streets in Tokyo, but haven't seen for a while.
    I wish the help that you, and others, do there could receive more widestream recognition but TV seems to be controlled by the government here, so we just get cover ups and/or endless information about weather and the effect on cherry blossoms.

    Hmmm now that you mention it I'm no sure what's happening. Last I saw it about 5 years ago the dogs were running in packs. Maybe on my next trip up north I'll drive through and see what its like.

    Hey Enson,

    If you don't mind me asking, and hopefully this isn't a repetitive question you've experienced here, but how did you end up getting invited to compete in Shooto? Were you affiliated with Sayama from an early age?

    Good luck to you and your endeavours
