Another day - another mascot!
I get on the mat with a stack of school-owners tomorrow, who are using the BJJ program that I have been promoting here for some years now - that will be great. After that, I get two days rest in San Fransisco before heading on up to Las Vegas to teach for Chuck Norris. These conventions are generally not a load of fun, at least not for me; they are long and gruelling days, no time to eat properly, or sleep properly for that matter - they certainly tale their toll. If anyone out there has illusions of this sort of thing being a fun-filled and jet-setting lifestyle - think again - this is WORK, and not the exciting and interesting kind, like ACTUAL training - this is talking, and listening, business and politics - a far cry from the things I like most about the martial arts world.
Still, there are some very nice people sprinkled in amongst the ego's - and there sure are plenty of those. It's a weird scene. I didn't have time to take any shots thins trip - with the exception of this cute one with one of te mascots stalking around. I think it's a dragon - not quite sure.
Well, time to tie up a few loose ends before hitting the hay early (before midnight). A huge day tomorrow. Stay well - I promise more intersting blogs once I get through this weekend.
