Boris, Michel, André

I will call this a Summer break, 3 guys are leaving / taking a break from our group at the same time

Boris Kiprich

Boris started training with us last month, unfortunately he injured his shoulder and needs surgery. He  is a really dedicated student and we all agreed on his fantastic spirit and potential. We are so sad he won´t be able to train for a while but we have a spot for him and we are waiting for his return!  

Michel Curpurdija

Michel is one of us ” old”  students, he will be moving to San Francisco for work for a few months but he will be back in September / october .

André Faraó

André is leaving tomorrow for Brazil his home country . André is going back to his children, he says he will be there at least one year and will be back later.

The summer will definetly be different but we know our guys will  come back at some point. Good luck to you all and see you later !

Trial

Doctor says:  “it is time to try training as usual and we´ll see how the shoulder reacts”. good!!!! at the session tonight I will finally use my right arm for real and not like a sissy as I have done for the past 3 months ! ;:-)

Of course there is no reason for me to overdo it and explode everything in there either  …

Training tonight at 19.00 with  Mikael André Remy and Will  , see you later…

Mikael´s first Seminar: Training and friendship !

As I said before this was a date to remember and a great opportunity as well. Mikael was very pleased , Håkon´s group is composed of very dedicated guys , he says it was very nice to be there and meet them all, he had a great time and looks forward to next time.

The  title ” training and friendship” is important to us, this is our moto for our seminars, but it is not just a title it has a purpose and this was brought to a whole new level this weekend. I see it from the outside and it is no question that there is a true friendship between Håkon and Mikael just because it is simple and direct between them.

I asked Håkon what he thought about the seminar and here is was he wrote:

“The seminar was incredibly inspiring and fun, we learned a lot in a short time and all the guys said it was an incredibly good seminar, we are already looking forward to next time.
We learned many details, for example structure, kicking, hitting, straight lead, sparring, we went through the ground fighting, defense, attack to defense, Hit On Retreat, combinations, different focus pad drills, timing,  distance and much more
I tried to take Mikael down and it’s not so easy but you and those who have trained with him for so long know about that.
 

 

I laughed, and my children laughed too, it’s no wonder when you see how I’m being tossed around like a doll…. damn I had no chance!
 
 

 

And if you ask Mikael: do you know sidekick? See what he answers.. it is a funny joke now!
His sidekick was sick! It was so hard I flew off the ground and backwards and landed on my car, it is the truth, it is such a shame we did not filmed it! “

 So as I wrote on FB,  next time there will be a french girl in the picture!

On the way… to Norway

I drove Mikael to the airport this morning at 5.30, the flight went well he landed at 8 in Norway, he could not get on any train at the arrival but he found a buss and it will be another 3 hours to Håkon.

I feel very sad I could not go, I would have loved to see Mikael do his first Seminar. The thing is you can´t do it all, sometimes you have to choose and I chose to save money to go to San Fran in september.

I get messages from the buss, it is apparently very nice over there…

The Slope!

Last Sunday we had such a fantastic weather we decided to go to the slope and have a BBQ after training.

Boris and I were first in place so we started running up and down.  By the time the other guys arrived Boris had already run twice. When the other ones started I went for my second time. That is the thing, this slope is a real pain! You have to have good stamina and real good legs otherwise it is impossible. Boris is running it up like it is nothing!!! I stopped a couple of times to catch my breath and have my legs recover. It felt good to be able to do it two times anyway,  I even run all the way down.

Some sparring after that and two injured people, André has probably a broken rib and Michel twisted his ankle.

After a while we decided it was time for reward, the BBQ was awesome, Mikael and I had portable ones from the company where I work ( Primus ) and Mikael even had another type of stove which he used to make a “ratatouille “, it was a pretty advanced BBQ style but it was so GOOD!!!!

We had an amazing time, as usual.

Yesterday in the afternoon I started to feel pretty tired , my legs felt strange, as the afternoon went it became worse and on the way home when I walked up the stairs that lead to my appartment,  I felt the pain ! OMG today is even worse can´t walk down stairs at all !

Yeah  this is how you realize that slope is doing the work ! We need to do that again 🙂
