Back to work!!!

Hi guys, this is the first time I am writing a blog!
I am so happy because this week I started training after 6 weeks due to my injury at the 2010 Worlds. I still wanted to fight, even though I was injured, because I was prepared physically and mentally and had such good training with Bruno Bastos in Texas, and Gustavo Dantas in Arizona. But this is now in the past and I am ready to move on and get in shape for next year!
I am now teaching in a big school in Melbourne, Australia-Extreme Jiu Jitsu and Grappling. I want to do well here and give my best to all the students here. I hope to prepare and condition the guys here to do well in future competitions.
