Jiu-jitsu in the far south!

HELLO DABAW!!!
So when I got the invitation to #ChoMaiLoveForYou, I made sure I would have time to train. The wedding was on a Saturday, so I flew in Thursday evening. With Friday free, I got to train twice: at noon (taught by Miko), and at 6PM (led by Jan). 

The lunchtime class had fewer people, most of whom were coloured belts. I went there after two breakfasts, so I was charged with a lot of carbs and coffee! It was my first time to train after taking yet another hiatus from Deftac Manila, so I was really rusty. But I enjoyed the class a lot, mainly because of the pressure passing drills. A couple of guys remembered me from my first visit, so I got asked why I was still a white belt after two years. All I could say was that I’m consistently inconsistent. LOL!
Lunch time classmates
Miko gave me some encouraging words after rolling with him — he said I was attempting the right things, but I lacked speed. I can’t remember who said it, but someone commented that my moves were “very Ribeiro.” I’ve never watched any footage of me sparring, so I wasn’t sure what he meant. Haha! I think I rolled three or four times before I hit the showers.
Mandatory!
Laundry was my next stop after gym. I went to a self-service laundromat in order to have my gi ready for the 6PM; I couldn’t bring two gis for the trip because I was too stingy to pay for extra luggage allowance. After that, I had a late lunch in Moon Cafe in Abreeza Mall, and then I worked on a social media plan for one of my clients before heading back to the dojo. The 6PM class was just as fun! There were more people, and a lot of them were white belts like me! I pretty much got my ass handed to me, but I didn’t mind. :) 

My Selecta friend Jules, and his lovely girlfriend Luna, picked me up after gym for dinner and drinks — which was perfect, because I was really starving by the time class wrapped up. :) 

Thank you, Deftac Davao, for awesome rolls! See you guys again soon! :)
