Ever since I arrived on Sunday, I’ve been jonesing to roll Jiu-Jitsu style. I have to admit, I’ve been really nervous about finding a place down in Palm Coast, FL like the one Jeff runs up in Glastonbury, CT. Chilled out, free flowing and a place to call home. I’ve been spoiled, I know.
When I was looking online, I came across a few academies that seemed like they had promise, but I really had my eye on one in particular. I don’t want to go into things too deeply right now, but I will tell you that I rolled with John-Michael Kaleikini of Fight Science of Flagler Beach this afternoon (black belt under Relson Gracie) and had a very good and eye opening time. Jeff prepared me well and his Jiu-Jitsu lineage is well respected in these parts. When I explained who we’re under, I got a “Wow man! Macarrao!!!” Very well respected indeed.
I’ll write all about this later. I’ve got to head out to three classes tonight and get some serious rolling in. More later.
