    Pedro ! It was a fantastic honor to roll with you this past weekend, I enjoyed it very much and I am inspired to continue working hard and start my long overdue lessons in Judo :)
    Thanks for not smashing the daylights out of me and just tossing me down….a very funny thing happened…twice you attempted a step over choke….this is my specialty ( when I am fortunate enough to be on top)….my guys were laughing hard when you did that as they said I deserved it !
    I had a great time and as in all tournaments we get to make new friendships and realize that the world is a very tiny object these days….it is filled with two people….one is our friend and the other is the friend we have not met yet.
    I am looking forward to our next meeting and wish you well in your rolling and the school.
    Take care
