What better way to prepare for a tournament than to train at 6000ft. I am currently in Colorado Springs for work. I have been here for a week and a half already and the altitude is still kicking my ass. The gym I am training at is called Colorado Springs Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. The owner, Bill Hosken is a black belt under Rigan Machado. The first thing I noticed about the gym was the cleanliness, Bill stressed right off the bat that he makes sure he cleans the mats real well in order to avoid spreading any infections. I gotta say, this is the first time that my gi didnt smell at all after practice.
