"I finally joined Jonas after two days there and we trained in the evening with the same group of bjj he trained in the previous days.
The warm up was, from both of us' points of view, the highest paced one we ever witnessed and practised ahaha
The coach was an amazing 40 kg Purple belt who based the lesson of different solutions and variants of a sort of extern uchi-mata, helped personally with big difficulties I had due to my none experience in Judo. She made explained to me the technique time after time and in every single detail and made me feel it performed by her, also to see the differences in applying it to an higher person like Jonas and a shorter one like her.
We rolled in the end and I tried and finally made it with the lesson of the day! I felt good and empowered!
I highly recommend this academy above all to women, cause you will be able to meet great female athletes that will inspire you in your bjj paths with their own experience. To make some examples, they competed in the male division in able to improve as much as they could and to have more opponents, the always refused to cut weight for the same reasons, the coach challenged herself with 17 competitions in just one year once she took the blue belt.
Great vibes also from the other guys around, curious about us and our trip!
The morning after, awaken thanks to the cleaner, we had breakfast and packed our stuff for the next road trip, our first together: Hamburg
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 !
