Alliance Croatia student Damir Mirenic has been competing internationally, attaining a 6-1 record. He defeated Carlos Baruch (a Vitor Belfort student) in his last fight. Our own instructor in Kitchener, Dragan Konjevic, has spent a lot of time over seas teaching BJJ. Damir, with an already extensive background in striking (with Cro Cop’s team), is one of his proteges.
Rumour has it that Damir may be making an appearance in the Pride Bushido ring very soon. If so, this will be a huge accomplishment for the Alliance Team, and especially for coach Dragan! Good luck to you, Damir!!
As for myself, I’m leaving this Friday for Brazil with fellow team mate Andy Kwan. We’re going to be meeting Shannon Konvaitis down there and training at the third annual Alliance BJJ Camp. Stay tuned; I’ll keep you guys updated with any signifigant happenings in Brazil with the team.
Keep training hard and see you guys on the mats!
