A couple of weeks ago we had a very interesting visitor named Craig from Manchester, UK. Craig took time out of work to go travel for 12 months and as part of his travelling he is writing a blog about Brazilian Jiu Jitsu training in each country he is visiting. On his stay in Sydney he poped in for a class and wrote about the experience he had with us at Gracie Sydney Brazilian Jiu Jitsu (BJJ). Check out Craig’s blog- www.whitebeltabroad.com apart for being a great idea to combine travel and BJJ, it’s a beautiful work with a lot of passion in it. Also very inspiring!
