     Hey everybody!
    So as I said in my last post, Ive already been here for a month but i wasnt with consistent access to the internet and so theres some catching up to do.
    When I arrived here in Rio de Janeiro, I was picked up from the airport by my friend Douglas Lins, brown belt from GFTEAM and taken directly to Niteroi (the city neighboring Rio de Janeiro) to fight the World Cup! I was tired from the 14 hour flight, but was hoping it was nothing a little Jack3D and a good warm up couldn't fix.
