The time had finally come. After spending many hours training with Aito Iguchi and Yuga Okada, we were finally going to see the boys put their skills to the test with a big hockey tournament up in Nikko, Japan. The day started out in Tokyo and I put my Japanese train navigation skills to the test. I hit the road with all my stuff to join Aito and Yuga up in Nikko to watch them play. It was pretty smooth sailing and I enjoyed my 3 hour journey to Nikko station. Kumiko (Yuga’s Mom) picked me up at the station and we went for Soba noodles before the game. They were outstanding. I am a sucker for all Japanese noodles but these were top notch. After lunch we went to the Nikkō Kirifuri Ice Arena for the first game of the tournament. It was sick to see the game in person. Like everyone else, I’ve been watching the Japanese players mostly on the internet. Here was my chance to watch the competition in person. I was really excited with the level of play. In this video the Warriors dominate their opponent and Aito and Yuga finish with multiple points each. It was really fun filming this video but even more fun to edit it. I was having a blast re living this once in a lifetime experience and I hope you get a true sense of how cool it was to be there. Thanks a lot to Yuga and Aito for being such good hosts and having me up to watch them play. Enjoy Glimpz 16 part 1.

Martin Jones Sentry grip

Buttendz Glimpz 11 starts off with the 6 hour journey up north from Anaheim to Mountain View. I was headed up to crash with my cousin Ryan and go to see Martin Jones use Buttendz Sentry grip becoming the first NHL goalie to use Buttendz. It was a dream come true right before my eyes and I brought the camera along for the ride. I was also able to utilize my snapchat spectacles to get some great angles and perspectives. I ended up in the front row of the game and was able to watch Jones work up close. It is so amazing to see the top players in the world use the product we made. Anything is possible, just don’t stop and believe in yourself.

A few hours prior, I walked in the door from a long weekend at the Play On Ball Hockey Tournament. It was Monday morning, and I needed to get right back in the car and head to the great white north. I was trying to set up a meeting with Coach Dave Tait from @thehockeytutor. He reached out to me a few weeks prior that he liked Buttendz grips and wanted to learn more about the product. He also mentioned that he was interested in filming, so I thought it was a cool chance to shoot an interesting meeting with a respected hockey mind. We didn’t have a firm appointment this day but I knew that he was going to be on the ice so I decided to pop in and come bearing gifts. The meeting was awesome, David was really excited about the product and was welcoming to me. I was able to demo the application for some of his students and parents as well has have some in depth convos with Dave. Before I left, I messaged some buddies of mine from Hamilton. @Everything.hockey91 @WristyTwisty and @HKYsniper. They told me that they would be over at Sam’s house and that I should come by to film. So after my David Tait meeting I whipped over to Sam’s house and hung out with those beauties for the afternoon. We had a great time talking hockey and messing around with our Better Hockey training tools. We filmed a bunch of the day. Its so fun to get to work and play hockey at the same time. Thanks for checking out Glimpz 7. Drop a comment if you like it!
