Would like to send a special recognition to Christoph Weder, Bison Guy and bison gal for their generous contribution to the fundraiser. Bison guy told me he watches the videos I post on Facebook of BJJ and he is happy that we are partaking in the sport. So him and his boss (bison gal) generously donated some beef to this fundraiser. Kukscəmx sqəltmíx qwísp (bison guy) and tikłmíx qwísp (bison gal) for your generous donation. It inspired the kids to train harder
I would also like to thank the coaches, Jorden Reichenbach, Caine McCabe, Dallas and David for training our children and myself. We all have learned soo much. It has become table talk with others when we are visiting the clan and friends. Thank you for all the great training and tips especially at open mat.
One different grab going to change my “tiger style” technique. Kukscəmx.
Also I want to say thank you to all those that support us with our training and competition fundraiser in the past. BJJ has become a part of our daily lives. The kids don’t think of chores as work anymore. They think of it as training, establishing grips, overhook or underhook, closed guard and open guard. Simona was playing with violet while i was cooking, she was practicing lightly her closed guard and taking the back.
So awesome Kukscəmx
