It's Official

I am going to Portugal this summer. If anyone knows of a school that wants a visit from SG, let me know. I can always bring my gi! It's getting away from the family that will be the hard part. . . .
Hmmm . . . Would I put my kid in the Douro River for jiu jitsu? Only time will tell.


  1. Dear Mrs. Girl,

    I've been a silent reader of your blog since I found it about two months ago. Spent a whole Saturday catching up all your posts since you began. I can especially relate to a lot of your posts (not your frilly ones) as can my wife to your husband.

    As for your visit to Portugal, wife and I are both very jealous. My BJJ school in Switzerland, recently had a guest coach from Portugal. I haven't been at his school, however I did have a semi-private with him and he is a very, very cool guy, with a very relaxed manner of helping you on your game. He's English isn't the greatest, so he's coaching really comes through in practise. Link's below:

    One way or another, have fun in Portugal and we look forward to more posts.

    Take care,

    1. Hi Mongoose,
      Thanks so much for the information. I will check him out. It would be great to be able to do a post-Portugal post!
      Thanks for reading, too, all the way from Switzerland. I've been only to the Zs...Zermatt and Zurich. It was lovely.
