I got a e-mail today from UniJJ.com inviting me to RIO Camp! What was my first response. Where do I sign up!!! Then reality hit me when I read “For 15 lucky people” . . . ahhhhhhhh man! My balloon was deflated and I realized it was more then that sentence. First of all I don’t have a visa. Why would I? I have never had a reason to leave the states until now. Second, I would have to stay for more then a month before I could settle down and concentrate. You know what I mean. The white beaches, the tropical atmosphere, the sites to see and things to do. Third, what would I tell the family? “Dear, ahhhh I want to leave for say . . . 10+ days and go do BJJ in Rio. Do you think you and the kids will mind staying here in Utah while I go have the time of my life?” Nope, I could not sell that in a million years. So Saulo, with great sadness I must decline and admit I can not be one of those lucky 15. I’ll just keep dreaming and hoping.
Jiu-Jitsu is Life and Life is Jiu-Jitsu
