Got a visit from Robson Barbosa and Mauro Salomao last night

About a month ago, I met this guy Robson at a tournament in Sweden. We got to talk and he offered to come by my gym to teach a bit. He is normally teaching in Helsingborg, which is not too far away from Copenhagen where I am located, so I thought it would be a good idea.

Last night, he dropped by together with his friend Mauro and they taught a good gi class. It was the more traditional approach to training that I have experienced in a lot of gyms around in the world, but nevertheless it was interesting and a tough workout with some really good sparring too. Two light, technical grapplers (with seriously impressive grip strength!!]) always makes up for some good rolls.

I learned some cool details and is looking forward to do some more training with the two in the future.
