Port Douglas is a little town at the top of the east coast in Australia. Where the rain forest meet the ocean. A beautiful place and so hot and humid. I worked 2 months there and unfortunately I didn’t find a BJJ gym in this area. 2 months without training… It’s hard to be regular on the mat when you travel for a long period. Working make it difficult sometimes.
I bought a car and built a bed inside so I can be free and travel the east coast at my own pace.
The idea was to stop along the way at BJJ gym.
First stop was in Cairns at Fusion fight and fitness for a afternoon session.
Sunshine coast here I am.
I asked on the BJJ Globetrotters FB page if anyone can recommand me a gym near the Sunshine coast area.
Chad invited me at his gym the Infinity Martial Arts in Kawana Waters.
I just drop in for a Monday night class.
It was awesome.
Everyone welcomed me and I felt like a member of the family already.
I was ready to sleep in my van somewhere that night but they offered me to stay at the gym.
A real bed and a shower!!
I’m in paradise now!!
I became comfortable there and stayed days after days.
I went at pretty much every class during 2 weeks.
Gi, No Gi I was there.
I was tanning at the beach after the morning session and waiting for the next class at night.
I was naked, my body was hurting but I didn’t know when next stop will be so enjoyed the time I had there.
BJJ . Beach. BJJ. Eat. Sleep . Repeat
I’m love with this lifestyle.
Just to put the word beach in this sentence make me happy.
Great Australia temperature. Love it!!
I washed my GI at the laundromat and hanging at the back of my van at the beach.
BJJ beach bum girl!
I had my first stripe at the Infinity martial arts and it mean a lot for me.
I trained hard and learned a lot in these 2 weeks and met awesomes coachs and partners.
As a traveller I had to continue my journey and hit the road with Jade (my little van)
I keep in touch with some guys there and I actually bump into one at a comp in Sydney.
What a nice feeling to recognize someone you know.
BJJ create awesome connexion everywhere around the world.
Had a blast in Sunshine coast
Might go back there one day!
Thanks to you badass Infinity family!!!
