Being a full time ninja is STILL the shit

Training is amazing. I've been completely injury free for 3 months straight and sparring in the gym has been really good. The team is so strong right now and every single roll I have with my training partners is highly challenging physically and technically. I feel like I improve my game really well at the moment and I enjoy training so much it obviously has an effect on my teaching. Overall, training and teaching Jiu-Jitsu full time is STILL a lot of fun here two and a half years after I quit my job as graphical designer in a boring computer company :D

Tomorrow I am picking up Rey Diogo from the airport. I trained with him in California during my trip to USA last year. It was good training and he was a cool guy, so when I found out that he regularly was teaching in a gym in Sweden only 300 kilometers from Copenhagen, it was easy to arrange a visit to my gym. He is gonna stay here for two days and do a seminar in my gym tomorrow morning that I am looking very much forward to. I have also planned on taking some private lessons with him both tomorrow and tuesday. I'll make sure to write about my training with Rey here in the blog when he has left :)

Another story of my life is that I successfully promoted my second big MMA show a few weeks ago, Adrenaline 2. It was an amazing experience and I am so eager to keep developing this event and watch it grow bigger and bigger. I'll write more about my experiences as promoter in another post later.

Also, I have some more posts lined up for the blog along with some new technique videos I have had in my mind for so long I need to do something about them now. And in one month I am going to London to attend UFC 85 and cheer for danish fighter Martin Kampmann, be sure to find a post about that trip here as well! Keep checking back from time to time, updates WILL come eventually ;)
