Jeff and Sue left on Sunday. Paul, Wes, Randy, and I leave on Tuesday for the BJJ World Championships in Brazil.
I have decided not to compete because of my neck. BJJ Training was going good until last Wensday when I tweeked my neck/back.
It hurts bad enough still that I don't think I should risk competing this weekend and possibly make it worse. Usually BJJ doesn't stress my neck to bad but in competition it could be alot worse.But it gives me an opportunity to coach my guys this weekend and make sure that they are in the best possible place to win at the BJJ Master and Senior Championship.! It is a short trip but I am very excited to be going back to Brazil after 11 years. It would have been great to compete again in Brazil at the BJJ Worlds and competing would have been a great experience but I think I will need surgery if I hope to compete at this level again. Good Luck to the guys this weekend at the BJJ Championships, and I will be posting results as soon as I can get to a computer on how everyone does!
