So, Ive been smoking lots of marijuana for a long time, when i went away to college this year i really started to smoke alot because it was pretty much the only thing to get me through going to classes. The other day a friend of mine mentioned that he was going to Brazil for a BJJ camp at BTT. Jiu-Jitsu has always interested me, and when he told me the price for the entire trip, I was pretty shocked at how cheap it was going to be. Its 1800 for the camp, hotel, transportation, extra activities and 2 meals a day for the entire 10 days it lasts. another 600 for airfare, not bad in my book. Since i got home almost a month ago, Ive really wanted to travel somewhere. A great oppertunity showed up, and not only do I intend to go and learn BJJ from some of the top fighters, Its really an oppertunity for me to get my life back on track. Ive been gaining weight from smoking and eating so much and just laying around. So in preperation I have already cut down on my marijuana smoking and have almost completley quit smoking cigs(used to be 2 packs a day, now down to like 4 or 5 cigs a day) Im starting to feel really alive, Ill never quit smoking weed, but ive realized cutting back isnt that big a deal. Basically I just wanted to make a post and tell everyone how im feeling, Ive always been a pretty depressed person, but right now, Im working out and trying to live a healthy life. I think that the steps Im taking are really having a positive effect on my life and i just wanted to share that with you. the camp has some top notch instuctors such as Murilo Bustamante, Rodrigo Antunes, ZÃ© Mario Sperry, Bebeo Duarte, Eduardo Rios, and Fabiano Capoani. Also my friend who is going told me he sent an email to the camp asking if any other fighters would be there. They mentioned some names of people who train there daily and said that they will be around and helping out, he was pretty excited about some of the people(hes really into BJJ). Dont know if anyone has heard of any of the names i listed. So after all that, anyone else into BJJ?
