Awesome weekend

So, Rigan was here this weekend and did a seminar in my gym. It was really good, I caught some good details and I really liked his approach to Jiu Jitsu. I took a private with him today to steal some of his topgame secrets and he also showed me some good tips on escaping from bottom. I got a chance to roll with him a little and as expected, he completely CRUSHED me, I couldn't move an inch. Pretty cool experience, kind of brings back the "magic"... the feeling that some people are just so good at this stuff and that there is still sooo much to learn. Great inspiration.

We trained almost five hours both saturday and sunday so I am really tired now, but I still have a long day of training in front of me tonight... another five hours to be exact :)

Rigan just left for a few days for Amsterdam and then he will go to Sweden for a seminar there, before going home to California.

Training with Rigan Machado this weekend

This weekend, Rigan Machado is coming to my gym to teach a seminar. I am really looking forward to train with him and hopefully get some inspiration for my game. Maybe I'll even invest a little money in an hour of private lesson with him, I'll be sure to post all about it here :)

Attacking, energetic game - Leozinho vs. Shaolin

Man these two guys have so much energy, it is really inspiring to see them roll. This is the game I am trying to develop at the moment:

Training is going great, I am getting a lot of rolltime and working hard on being more aggressive. Damn it is hard on my body, I wake up every morning and is sore all over. Hopefully I will get used to it soon. I will film some of my rolls soon and put them up here, then I can look back later in the 1000 flighthours project and see how it looked earlier :)
