Your time in Brazil

Hey chris,
i remember reading somewhere about you saying you slept on the training mats for a year when you went to brazil. i wondered what age you were when you went, did you work over there or how did you support yourself and how much mat time did you get a day?

I'd appreciate any help,
take care man

I didn't work.  Had a girl in Canada that supported my trip.  I was like 24 I think. it was 95-96.

Got in tons of mat time. Morning class then the beach then night class.  2 times everyday with some privates thrown in the middle sometimes...

Thanks alot for the reply Chris.

Happy Holidays!
