Biarritz Training 2007 - By JD

Kid, Been having a great time at the WCT in France the last week.. A couple of well known Brazilian Black Belts have even showed up to watch the surfing contest. Richardo Arona has been here training a couple French surfers from the tournament. #9 in the world Jeremy
Flores and wild card and former Wct surfer Mikael Picon. Along side of him Ze Marcelo from Carlson Gracie has come down from his home in England to help out. So last night I got a chance to go to Yannick Beven's school in Biarritz and train with Ze Marcelo and Yannick,
(Yannick is a Black Belt under Ze Marcelo) it was a great train and a great time.

If anyone is ever in the area stop by and see Yannick, he's a great teacher and a super nice guy! Hopefully in the next couple days I'll get a chance to train with Arona. I'll keep you guys updated!
Aloha, JD
