Good Luck Professor Mike


This weekend is the 2013 ADCC Worlds.  Grizzly Gym professor, Mike Martelle will be competing in the +99KG bracket.  It’s a pretty stacked event.  Unfortunately he has drawn Roberto “Cyborg” Abreau in the first round.  While you always want to have confidence in your professor, and assure him he is going to kick some ass, this particular draw makes it hard to keep that conviction in the encouragements.  lol.  I’m sure Mike would be the first one to express these sentiments.  Afterall, Mr. Abreau has been the gold medalist three years in a row.  Regardless of the outcome, Grizzly Gym will be cheering him on.  Everyone is proud of him.  Go kick Cyborg’s ass Mike… *yikes


I was planning on going to BJJ class tonight, but all too often in life, things change. I got a call from work to come in for OT. Unfortunately making extra money is a higher priority right now. I wish, like everyone else does I’m sure, it wasn’t. I’ll have to be satisfied with my morning workout at the gym. It was a good one, production copious amounts of sweat.

I have been thinking about doing a tournament in October. Part of me wants to avoid all competition because I’m embarrassed when my fellow competitors find out how long I’ve been training, and then see my on mat incompetence. There’s another part of me that really loves the competition. It’s hard to suppress that part… I don’t know what to do. It’s a while until the registration deadline. I’m sure I will flip-flop back and forth many times until then. Anyways, here’s the tourney info if anyone is interested in competing.
