Another amazing day in New York City, I must say. With the life I live, can’t really complain. I do what I love therefore I love what I do even when I am cutting weight for an upcoming tournament.
Look at all the great people here I shared the mats with this morning. Competition training was awesome. The vibe of 13 black belts out there translates to the rest of us, for sure. 8x8 minute rounds from stand up.
Post competition training I headed to Moda Yoga NYC with my BJJ sista, Ellie. She shared her practice and part of her way of life with me and I’m eternally grateful. It was a really fun experience to do a community class, which by the way was only $7! Hot yoga felt sooooooo good. It was still quite strenuous on the body, but it helped with the weight cut and relax my muscles. I rubbed Abolene prior to class and 5 minutes of vinyasa, I was drenched.
Ended the day at Renzo Gracie Fight Academy. Another reason why I’m so grateful for all the opportunities I have to train. I love this art so much and utilize my resources. After class, I reached 117lbs. Feeling strong with 2 days to go.
Saturday is the big day! Want more details on the competition? Go to ibjjf.org
