Great weekend in Norway

I spent the weekend in Bergen, Norway, teaching a seminar and also had time for a day on snowboard. Had a great time, it is such a beautiful country and the people there were very nice. Also some good Jiu Jitsu to be found! I got to roll a lot with most people at the seminar - hard work, but I enjoyed it a lot :)

Gave out four well overdue blue belts and is excited to come back in the future and see how they progress!

Travel & seminar madness!

I've been traveling quite a bit the last month and a half. Actually so much, that I haven't really had time to update the blog :)

After Moldova, I went to Paris for the weekend with my girlfriend. No training there though. Week after, I taught a seminar during a flash visit on only 34 hours in Edinburgh, Scotland. Then I did a seminar in Odense, a city here in Denmark, and Monday I came back home after four days in Russia.

Seminar in Odense, Denmark
Seminar in Ryazan, Russia
Seminar in Edinburgh, Scotland
Tomorrow, I am off to Norway for snowboarding and seminar and soon after, I will go to England to watch Manchester United vs. Manchester City and teach a small seminar in Bolton.

Here is a short video of a roll in Moscow, Russia:

Visit from Chris Haueter

Chris Haueter has a special place in my Jiu Jitsu-heart, as he was the first person to ever "teach" me BJJ, when I bought his VHS tapes back in the late 90s and was blown away by this conceptual and positional approach to grappling, I had never seen before. His philosophies and view on training has influenced my own career and gym immensely, so it was a great experience for me to have him visit me last night for a small class and a nice, slow roll.

I visited Chris in California during my round the world trip and I will recommend anyone in that area to go visit his little backyard garage. You may also read more about him in my book :)
