London pre-tasted Globetrotting at CHISWICK BJJ ACADEMY
Just few days before the real start of the journey I booked my plane to London and had the great chance to taste one part of the Bjj globetrotters brotherhood.
I'm talking about the CHISWICK BJJ ACADEMY, held by Lorenzo Fraquelli, black belt under Roger Gracie in 2014.
We joined their Saturday Open mat in the morning and had a great welcome from all the guys there. It's impossible to explain how friendly and humble are these guys (and tough sparring partners of course!)
After that and a good chat we have been offered to join their group for some beers together enjoying the hot sunny weather (yes, it happens in London, sometimes).
Obviously accepted! We laugh and talked and drank together, just met few hours before, in the jiujitsu way, possibly with your ass on their faces or vice versa, when it seemed to know them since a long time.
This is the Globetrotters spirit, this is what should fuel my trip, this is what I found in a not enough known bjj academy in London.
I highly recommend to everyone to include them in your London training plan, or even better if you live here, to join their group.
Tube: Stamford Brook Station, take the Prebend gardens exit and walk straight across the road. We are the second arch on the right at Arch 197.
We do like to travel and train. After a trip around Europe, we couldn't stop doing it. Unfortunately, time is not always there. We try to update this globetrotting blog as much as we can !
