The road to London: Week 3.

Another week has passed and the competition in London is closing in. Training has been great this week and my back seems to feel better and better. I managed to do five days of sparring, which felt like a good amount, balanced out with my restitution over the week.

I took my kids to the first competition of this autumn, and as I expected, they did really well. It is such an honor to be able to have an influence these kids and be able to give them some good experiences. Swedish Open is coming up next month, the biggest competition in Scandinavia, and I plan to take them all there to compete.

I've been spending a lot of time this week trying to get in touch with the IBJJF in order to register myself as a black belt as well as registering my academy, so my students can sign up for the competition in London. It was more than two weeks, since I sent the signed forms, but they still haven't really done anything about it. The deadline for athlete and academy registration was two days ago, so I really, really hope I can get to compete there.

Six months off the mat and I am hungry to get back, so cross your fingers for the IBJJF to get themselves together and get my registration done :-/

Good luck with the registration! I heard it's a pain to deal with the ibjjf sometimes, that's why black belts I know just use their affiliation blackbelt to make life easier.
