Hey there! Welcome to my humble slice of the Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu universe! I’m John, and I’m stoked to unfold my BJJ journey with you through this blog.
My Expedition in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu
My voyage in the vast ocean of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ) set sail about one year ago, and oh boy, what a thrilling adventure it’s been! With a blend of sweat, a bit of tears (of joy, mostly!), and loads of laughter, every moment on and off the mats has been nothing short of epic. The day I timidly stepped onto the BJJ mats, I was instantly ensnared by the magic it wields. The fusion of getting fit, sharpening the mind, and the warm camaraderie of the BJJ tribe just felt right.
From White Belt to Less White-ish Belt
As a two-stripe white belt, I’m still a baby bird in this vast nest, yet every class has been a new flight, soaring into the depths of BJJ. Although the instructor title is a distant horizon, the dream to guide fledglings through their first rolls keeps the fire ablaze. The thought of one day being able to witness the light of understanding flicker in a newcomer’s eyes as they grasp a technique is a treasure I am keen on pursuing.
