In an exclusive interview with former jiu-jitsu training partner Vince Krause, listeners are given a firsthand look at Paul Walkers’ life as a student of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. In the very first Fast and Furious, Walker shot a scene where he fights Tyrese Gibson and wins via triangle choke from the closed guard.

“From that time on” stated Bishop Chronicles host Adisa Banjoko “I was curious to see if he just shot the scene or truly studied the art. I was excited to learn that he was indeed a true student of the art. Walker was often scene at the front row of various UFC events and was a true fan of the sport.

Vince Krause first made a name for himself in the world of skateboarding. He was one of the earliest generation of Hawaiian skaters to be sponsored by the top brands of the time. Krause would go on to work with some of the top names in skate culture in Los Angeles as the sub-culture exploded globally.

It was there where he would begin studying jiu-jitsu and begin training with Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu legend Rigan Machado in Los Angeles. After working with some of the biggest names and brands in the skate industry Krause moved back to Honolulu. After settling into his stomping grounds he continued studying the art under Relson Gracie standout Ronn Shiraki back in Hawaii.

Krause kindly shares how the art of jiu-jitsu bonded them as students of the gentle art. Bishop Chronicles host Adisa Banjoko takes his listeners on a journey that speak not only to his dedication to perfecting the art, but also Walkers’ efforts in perfecting his character as a human being. The duo spent three years training in Hawaii, LA, Atlanta, Puerto Rico and South Africa.

“Beyond the excitement around Fast and Furious 7” stated Banjoko “listeners will get a powerful look at Paul Walker in ways he simply could not be known. Any true fan of Walker or Jiu-Jitsu will certainly find themselves inspired by the life of Paul Walker in this episode of Bishop Chronicles. We cannot thank Vince Krause enough for being so kind, careful and insightful in sharing his thoughts on Paul Walker and his love for Jiu-Jitsu.”
