How are you doing at the moment ? Are you fit for fight ? My shoulder got dislocated for the second time a couple of days ago which kind of sucked, so I’m doing some rehab now to prevent it from happening again. Other than that I’m all good, just skating, working and doing my best to stay alive.

In the beginning of June I will be going to Marseille for two different competitions and then almost directly to Prague afterwards for the Mystic Cup contest. Other than this I guess I’ll just take the days as they come.
