After suffering from rib injury and finger inflammation for the first Matrix Invitational held on 12 March 2017, Vladislav Genov came out of Bulgaria to replace me and he won the tournament in a spectacular fashion by submitting all of his opponents:

Here is a glimpse of my grappling sessions at Alex's home:

Since Alex and me had some great rolls I decided to bring the camera to record couple of rounds mostly for a personal remembrance and sharing those with friends, who wonder what is happening in the home of a BJJ maniac with mats in his living room :P
I shot only three rounds, yet the video turned out to be too long so I decided to use couple great Astral Projection old school tracks with their slow and fast pace to change the pace in this video. Still at the end of the day this went to be 35 minutes, so I won't bring my gopro again :D



Here are two beloved techniques also seen in the above sparring and mainly refined in that legendary room:



Here another small gi-gem we filmed as a white belts warming up for the sandbagging worlds :D

This is my video of one of the many circuit training sessions I went through in my old grappling club:

The first tournament organized by my club Matrix BJJ using Eddie Bravo ruleset went great and after winning the 76 kg division and securing the fastest submission bonus I met my sparring partner Alexander Neufang in the finals of the absolute division. I wouldn't fight a teammate on a grappling event, but since it was organized by us and we were the participants, we gave it a go for fun. Both of us couldn't get a submission, also in the overtime regulations, so Alex was decided to be the winner by fastest escape. Anyway, if someone is interested, here is the video:

Here some short video impressions from the great summer camp at Sozopol organized by the Bulgarian Grappling Association
