I didn't know how to start the article so I put a pic of what we have down the road. I think it explains how is it here... Ok :p
So, new school year, new place, new stuff. I got the chance to go in sport university in Messina and Gloria to do her last here in here to.
We did come here in early September (they got up to 50°C in august here, i wouldn't have survive).
I already visited my new and future academies, which are part of my university. Very well !
The BJJ academy is a part of Tribe Jiu Jitsu, well known and quiet big here in Italy, didn't get the chance to take any pics yet, but i certified that the technical level is very good. Even if the body shape is quiet different than Ireland or France here (i'm one of the biggest :( ), i'll get the chance to learn a lot for my BJJ and completely different of what i'm used to. That will be all good ! Glad about that !
I also have the chance that the neighbors are part of this very same academy and own a mat they display on our buildings roof to train.
On the judo side, I have the very chance and honor to have a twice olympian (in judo and freestyle wrestling) prof. Katarzyna Juszczak who provides excellent trainings !
I have the intention to compete both in Judo and BJJ this year, if my time and money is okay -student lol-, and i'm sure all those trainings would be very good for me, for my improvement and all the rest.
I can't wait to go back to training again !
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 !
