Thanks for your words and offer. I am enjoying New York too, bye the way. They book is my story and it does outline everything I get up to. I was living in Brazil and other parts of South America for around 40 months while writing the story. Jiu-jitsu was something that kept me occupied during my time in the South and it was also a great way to get free Portuguese and Spanish lessons. My coaches generally didn’t speak English while training. The focus of the story was not jiu-jitsu. Although, it does give some funny stories of me getting into little situations. Enjoy. Thanks again! Gaston. Reply Leave a Reply Cancel reply Enter your comment here...
