I am a better person today because I am immersed in Jiu-Jitsu culture. “Learn everything and keep pushing” is a much better outlook than “I pretty much know everything, so why so much effort”. BJJ is humbling, it has taught me mental toughness, it makes me strive to be healthy, my best friends are people I have met in this community…and all I have to do to achieve all this greatness in life is simply step on the mat.

Good morning. I hope you all have something positive to keep pushing toward. It’s a great feeling, right?

I firmly believe that any man’s finest hour, the greatest fulfillment of all that he holds dear, is that moment when he has worked his heart out in a good cause and lies exhausted on the field of battle - victorious.

Tonight I was apart of something special. The words perseverance, dedication, and loyalty are stuck in my head like a favorite song. I will always feel that nostalgia when I think about the 7 guys that I watched move up tonight, and the man that works hard to teach me Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. It makes our lives better.
