Lorenzo went to visit our friends in Bavaria at Stonewood Rangers. This is the third year WaveBJJ has visited our Bavarian friends and it's always a pleasure to share the knowledge and train and drink with these guys.
Stonewood Martial arts is a school in Ebnath, Bavaria. The closest big city is Nuremberg and from there you can take a scenic train ride to Neusorg which is a stone throw from Ebnath. The school has around 40 members all of them are very dedicated and is taught by Andi.
Lorenzo taught a three day seminar, going over back taking and back techniques followed by some pressure passing. Andi took us for a walk in the Stonewoods and we ate a lot of Bavarian food which comprises of a lot of meat, although Andi being a vegetarian tried to convert us at every meal. Below is a typical conversation at dinner :)
"What is a typical Bavarian dish Andi?"
"Are you sure? Seems to be a lot of meat on this menu?"
There was also a grading and a shark tank. Lots of new stripes and one belt this time and an epic shark tank for Karsten.
In 2018 we will be doing a big group trip to Bavaria. Keep your eyes peeled for more information.
