I learned Portuguese. Gave me a lot more options in terms of life, friends and women.
Good luck bro. Welcome back
Triangle is always good
Wait i'm confused? Are you moving their as in living their for the rest of your life? Or are you just taking a training vacation?
The original plan was to go for 6 1/2 months. About half way through that trip I made the decision that I was going to move there forever.
Upon coming home to sell all of my belongings and move back, I met my now wife. I did end up going back and changed my plans to stay until I got my black belt. I ended up staying another 9 1/2 and before I received my black belt.
In total, this blog spans the
few of months before the going to Brazil
6.5 months first trip
7 months home to sell belongings
9 months on the second trip
close to 2 years.
Do you miss Brazil?
I'd like to make it back to Rio this year or next, but Ricardinho has left Rio for somewhere else in South America with his family, and now FightZone is being run by Gabi and (I think) Levinho. It looks like Bala and Rufinho are running the Cantagalo Social Project full time now as well, so I'm curious what training is like... I try to keep up with who is training where via Instagram but it is tough! The Checkmat presence in Brazil seems to be seriously waning with everyone so spread out. I may go back to Santos instead of Rio this time and train at The House.
