During the coverage of André Galvão’s victory at New York No-Gi Jiu-Jitsu tournament Ultimate Absolute, news broke that Robert Drysdale was there competing. Nothing could be further from the truth, twas misinformation (on our part too). There was no way the teacher living in Las Vegas could be there, as he was hopping a flight from Europe to the United Arab Emirates, doing his part for the Jiu-Jitsu cause.
“I’m in Abu Dhabi training with the sheikh, a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. Before here I was in Poland, where I held a one-week training camp. I always feel at home there, and I promoted two deserving athletes to black belt, Maciej and Zbigniew. Zbigniew is my student and won the European tryouts for the ADCC; he’ll be in England representing our team too,” said Robert.
