I’m Mon, a white belt from Allegiance BJJ Academy in New Zealand, and my boyfriend is Rion, a recently promoted brown belt from the same academy. We’re currently touristing around Thailand, Myanmar, and Vietnam for around seven weeks and have taken our Gis along for the journey.
We have had our holiday willingly “hijacked” by Tammi from BJJ Myanmar and are now teaching BJJ all around Myanmar – and relaxing and being tourists somewhere in between. Please read up on our experiences in Myanmar, especially where we describe what it’s like teaching in remote places with language barriers and in garage gyms; we hope that it’s interesting enough to attract other Globetrotters to the area to keep building on the knowledge we leave behind.
You can also follow our trip on our Instagram accounts – @m.timminsbaker and @whereisthefruitbro – but you will get more of an idea of our BJJ experiences on our blog here. Please message us on Instagram if you would like us to teach at your club! We’re open to anywhere but especially looking to train in Vietnam.
Mon and Rion.
