Wow, we finally made it back on the mat, after a long break away from training.

We experienced a mixture of feelings from ah it's good to be home, oh gee I am really unfit ( puff, puff, pant ), was i ever that fit, can i really make my body do that to - so this is the fun we've been missing out on.

Sure we're just shy of the big 5 0 and we've lost a bit of fitness and put on a few extra pizzas I mean kilos Smile but it still feels right.

Our BJJ journey has come full circle and we are back training in BJJ with Soa at The Fight Factory.

So now we start on the long road to regaining fitness, flexability and stamina and continue our learning.

Ah.... life is good

Hi Animal, no, we're back training with Soa at the Fight Factory, it's just 5 mins down the road. The hardest part is the fitness, skills are there to a degree but fitness prevents us carrying them out Smile

Helio Gracie was rolling into his 90s. Saulo Ribeiro couldn't submit him when they rolled (Jiu Jitsu University, Howell & Ribeiro, 2008).
