Missing in Action...the cliff notes.
I am super excited that Leticia Ribeiro and Beatriz Mesquita will we coming to my academy-Relson Gracie Jiu Jitsu Austin. I was lucky enough to catch her seminar last summer in Dallas. It's not one you want to miss. Seriously, $60 for a seminar with Leticia & Bia is a steal and totally worth it! Register at www.poweredbyshe.com
I competed last weekend @ the IBJJF World Championships. I lost my first match to Angelica Galvao. She is a fierce competitor and it was a pleasure to have competed with her. Big congratulations to her also for placing 1st in our division. I can honestly say I gave it my all and I prepared the best I could for this competition. With that, even though I didn't go home with a new shiny bling, I am very happy with my performance. There is nothing like losing a match when you know you sold yourself short...not for me this time. I walked away with a lot of new ideas of what I need to work on and how I can improve. After all that's what putting yourself out this is all about...learning and growing. As I don't have much time now, I'll blog all about it at a later time.
Let me see, what else....the Gracie Grappling Cup was a huge success! They had 2x as many competitors than last year. I didn't compete in this one, but I did have the pleasure of taking photos for the event. They are almost ready to view. I'll put up a link shortly.
Then there was Girls in Gis which was another success! We had twenty some ladies! Great turn out and I always love to train with the Dallas girls! You can check out the photos @ shamakophotography.
Big thanks to Tara Arrington, Kristine Felts and Alliance! I'll blog more about it soon also!
Well, there's a little recap. I am still alive and well if you were worried. I wish you all the best and keep an eye out for more to come! I promise it will be sooner than a month before I am on here again! Take care!
