Whistler

Jan 11-16 I was in Whistler BC.  An annual ski trip that I take with a group of… gentlemen.  The conditions were fabulous.  Tons of snow the first 2 days and then blue bird the last 2.  Here’s some pics.

This Week in BJJ

This happened on Thursday.

Yes that’s the first stripe on my purple belt. I only got the gosh darn thing on September 30. Plus I was out for 2 months with the hip flexor injury. I feel like it came too fast. Oh well. Best just go with the flow I guess. I’ve been teaching a bit. I like it. I’m able to do more of what I want to work on. We have several new white belts, so I’m going to have to start planning 2 small lessons. I know it’s always good to work on basics, but the vets need new things to try/learn as well. It’s just another challenge. 🙂  I think there’s an art to teaching. I seem to be good at it. Probably because of my experience teaching skiing and Muay Thai.
