Default BJ's live like a champion project

As i have been critical of some of the comments BJ has made in the past few years, he is doing a great thing with this live like a champion project.

here is a video of how it is being integrated into a school:

too little, too late

BJ Penn should not be allowed to influence little children. Noone who speaks that kinda level of smack, does disgusting habits after a fight should be allowed anywhere near a school. This is probably a stunt at self-advertizing...whats he doing..techning them skills...coz he sure as hell aint teaching them character....when will he learn that his motto CANT help change a person. Education...maybe...but Lifestyle...no way!

Sorry to be harsh.

BJ Penn is a fine guy. He volunteered his time to visit troops in Afghanistan.

There's lot's of negative talk about Matt out there too, that he's arrogant and such, but for those that are on this board that know him (of which I don't), the slams against him couldn't be further from the truth.

His smack is talked before the fight, he celebrates his victories in keeping with his heritage, and I believe that he's sincere in what he's doing.

Later.

I think this is a wonderful thing for these kids. I liked what the teacher said, "It's a sense of belonging. Everybody needs to feel like they belong."

i think BJ has matured a lot over the last year. a year ago i could not stand him this year he has shown a new work ethic good sportsmanship and he is doing good things helping kids. i was familiar with his charity "Penn Hawaii youth foundation" its cool to see him expanding on that.

if he keeps this up i could become a BJ Penn fan someday

you dont mean that...



Look...I'm not saying its a bad project...education, teaching kids, maybe getting them into something that stops them getting into crime...its all valid.


...but Knowledge can only teach you what you can attain...it cant teach you how to BE...Champions arent just a skill set.
