Here are few highlights of this autumn, where I could meet some of the best grapplers in Europe!

Here's me with two of the best two german super heavyweights - Meraz and Freddy :)

I travelled to Sapateiro Invitational on 5 day notice and even became ill couple of days before the event, but I could still meet great people like Luke and Janusz on this photo

Overall the level of competition at this Sapateiro was just amazing!

My fellow teammate Thomas, or "Mr. Cardio" as I like to call him, fought great and went all the way to the finals!

After Sapateiro I visited Bulgaria, where I could train with the best grappling team led by Kristian Popov

Next day I rolled with the best lightweight in Bulgaria Veso Dukov

In a land where the national sport is watching TV and people are trying to beat each other's records, a group of people grounded the Bulgarian Grappling Association and are developing submission wrestling at its finest. This is a short tribute to Kristian Popov, Todor Abrashev, Veso Dukov, Vladislav Genov and Angel Karaivanov!

And this is a one shot from Pitbulls Grappling while taking a rest for a round!

On my way back I attended a seminar with whom I would call the best instructor Aaron Milham!

We were also visited by Nicky Ryan and Ethan Crelingsten, both of which are living ambassadors of Danaher Death Squad skills!

So you might not be surprised I won my first NAGA Europe belt, yet the suprising thing is that I did with the gi :D
