My first blog post for BJJ Globetrotters!
Hello everyone! Let’s start this first blog off with information about myself. I’m a 4th stripe blue belt from Canada and I love martial arts. I have been blogging on my own for a while now, talking about all things jiu-jitsu while I researched, planned, and then began my mission to travel and train around the world. I write a weekly article on my experiences and adventures as I travel and train, and sometimes even have interviews with the cool people I meet along the way. I have named this journey of mine, and the blog itself, Panda’s Odyssey. I’ve been writing about my adventures for some time now and am thrilled to be able to now post those stories here on BJJ Globetrotters, especially since the Globetrotter community has helped me so much and I’ve met so many other fellow Globetrotters along the way.
To fill you in, I started in November and have traveled across Canada, spending 4 months (during the winter!) training and meeting and making all sorts of new friends along the way. During that time I trained at 42 different clubs across the country. Now I’m in the UK as a start to my goal of a year across Europe and Asia. I’m about 3 weeks into traveling through the UK and Ireland and it’s been a blast so far!
I look forward to posting my adventures here now as well as continuing on now own blog and I hope this gets more people following my adventures and messaging me to meet up. If you want to catch up on any of my past adventures just check my blog at http://pandasodyssey.blogspot.ca
there’s also a map that shows all the clubs I’ve been ever trained at, with contact information for each one.
