Yesterday at NoGi Worlds I was standing near the bullpen when I was introduced to Rachel Morrison Casias (Zenith BJJ) by her husband Ray. I was amazed when she mentioned calmly that she hoped they would hurry up with her division because she needed to go pump milk for her 10 week old son who was up in the stands with friends. That’s right folks, 10 WEEKS OLD!
Women could vote once upon a time, women could roll once upon a time…

While waiting to go through the metal detectors at the NoGi Pan this morning, one may have wondered why they seem to have the same issues every year with apparently no effort towards improvement? Many of those who arrived early hoping to have time to warm-up for their 9am division were surprised to still be in line outside up until go time.
