As captain of the Japan national rugby team, Leitch and his teammates shocked the world with their performance in the Rugby World Cup. Recently Leitch paid us a visit as part of a photo shoot for supplement manufacturer HALEO at our dojo! By the end of the shoot we traded shirts—a Japan rugby T-shirt for us and a Carpe Diem BJJ T-shirt for him.

Yesterday he apparently received a congratulatory visit from Prime Minister Abe. We thought he was quite the gentleman!
