Alex “Little Rock” Silva is a Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu World Champion, and he could be one of the best grapplers in the world today. However, it was the striking aspect of martial arts that initially attracted him to combat sports. “My first exposure to it was Bruce Lee movies,” the 36-year-old said. “I started to train with all these [martial arts] like kung fu and capoeira, while my brother trained in judo. I tried it one time, but I didn’t like it because I liked punching and kicking.” While Silva was absolutely fascinated with the striking department, it wasn’t until he saw a Brazilian legend utilize submissions and takedowns that led to his ultimate martial arts passion.

By Christopher Reynolds The Canadian Press Tues., April 30, 2019 A credit score is more than just a number tucked away in some credit agency’s files. Poor credit can hinder car loans, mortgages and school options, ratchet up interest rates and push life goals out of reach. Experts recommend a number of steps to improve your credit score, whether you’re struggling with debt or you’re a new Canadian on the hunt for employment. In either case, Step 1 is to check your credit report by contacting a credit bureau — either Equifax Canada or TransUnion Canada — identify any errors in your borrowing history and work to correct them, as they can drag down your score.

Lucky for those who are curious, TV host Boy Abunda asked this burning question during his show, “Inside the Cinema,” where Gonzaga appeared as a guest alongside her sister Toni and fellow influencer Bianca Gonzalez. “How much can an influencer earn?” he asked.
