Over here in Northern Ireland, we’re dealing with the death throes of Winter, and what a winter it’s been! We’ve now got our van over, ready for camping and exploring! Although it isn’t exactly, “Camping weather” at the moment…
But nevertheless! The cold didn’t detere us from embracing the new years with a lovely dip in the refreshing sea, with a group of our close friends that I managed to somehow convince that it was a great idea!

With the same group, we took off to Donegal and explored a lough in the Glenveagh National Park. With a blustery walk around the beautiful waters edge, we wondered up to a castle and grounds and beyond to the lough’s beginning and back.
As like most of the scenery here, this was a magnificent place to explore made all the better with the company we had to roam it with.
Now the reason it’s taken so long to write another post is due to the classic BJJ blight of inevitable injury. But earlier this week I found myself waking up with the old familiar feeling of an aching body from a previous days, session of rolling.
I was visiting Belfast for the day, and so had decided to stop by my old club SBG, which now has a whole new pad to train in. Slapping hands with some familiar faces, was a feeling I had long missed. And the welcoming atmosphere, was more than appreciated. It was the perfect place to test my recovery and see if I am now fit to get some regular training again, getting some much needed and overdue rolls in. Big thanks to my friends and training partners Stephen Bell, Ben Delbart and Niall Smith.
