    Nathan Mendelsohn's American Jiu-Jitsu Player in Brazil Blog, Entry #4: Training With GFTEAM

    Wed, 2011-08-24 08:48 — Nathan Mendelsohn

     Hey everybody!
     
    Let's pick up where I left off last time.
     
    After the Rio Open I had to change locations because I was staying with my friend Marcus Antelante who is now traveling to the United States to teach classes in Atlanta. So now I'm here with my Brazilian Brothers Leopoldo and Theodoro Canal in Recreio. Whenver Theodoro travels to Santa Cruz, CA he stays with me and my family and whenever I come to visit Rio he always receives me in his home and takes really good care of me.

     Hey Everybody!
     
    So let's continue with the catch up....
     
    After competing the World Cup(see entry #2) I was taken to the apartment of my good friend and black belt from Soulfighters team Marcus Antelante where I would spend the next two weeks. Marcus had spent two weeks at my house in California training with our team at Claudio Franca's academy before the IBJJF Mundial 2010 and now he always makes me feel at home when I'm here in Brazil.

     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.
