Back from around-the-world BJJ trip :)

I am back in Denmark after a 140 days around-the-world trip to train BJJ. If you follow this blog, you have most likely checked out www.BJJglobetrotter.com already, but if you haven't, there is a lot of stuff to read up on :)

It was an amazing experience to go around the world and meet so many people through BJJ. I am full of energy and inspiration, and is really excited to train with my friends here at home.

Coming home also means, that I will resume writing this blog again. I have, of course, a lot of stuff with me home in the backpack, that I will be working to implement in my game over the next months and years.

Good to be back on ShogunHQ, check back soon for updates!

Nice to have you back buddy. It was quite a thrilling adventure to follow :)

I really enjoyed your interviews. We are all one indeed :)

Amazing!! Just finished reading your shogun blog from the beginning and just followed you around the world.

Just love your instructionals and your open attitude. Too bad I didn't know you were in my neck of the woods in Los Angeles. I would have driven you around. Maybe next time.

Thanks so much for sharing.

I'm also going to Hawaii in two weeks, hoping to get a day of surfing (white belt no stripes) and a day of bjj (white belt 4 stripes).

btw: what kind of camera and lenses did you use to shoot all those amazing photos?

Enjoy Hawaii, and make sure to drop by my friend Steven Saito for some training and perhaps surf tips!! Catch him on facebook!

Oh yes, I did read your Globetrotter blog. I got to the end your blog and how could i not read it???
Why do you ask? Did you have camera info there? sorry if i missed that.

Couple of funny things though: 1. your only "Black Belt" burger was at the Counter and they just opened up a branch down the street from my office and my office workers are trying to recreate your "Black Belt" burger from your order form pic off your blog. ha ha.

2. I had also just finished reading the book, Pilgrim's Progress (i'm not religious...well not in the narrow, organized sense of the word) as i was reading about your travels and the main character in PP is named...Christian. Coincidence? I think not!

Haha yeah the link I posted was a post about what camera and equipment I used ;) no worries man :)

I am still dreaming about that burger from the counter! :) it was one pound of bison, lettuce, tomato, spring onions, bacon and garlic sauce, as far as I remember. And don't forget the Parmesan fries! ;)
