Jiu Jitsu


Typically the very first promotion in a martial art doesn’t mean too much (at least for me), but I’ve learned that the instructors in my Brazilian Jiu Jitsu class don’t mess around. I started in January and have been to 96 classes this year. This wasn’t a belt promotion, just a single stripe on my white belt. I know I have a lot to learn, so promoting at this pace keeps me extremely humble. This is how it should be.
