More about me:
I was always into martial arts from a young age. I joined up at Legion 13 after a friend of mine asked me to come down and try it out. I was the kind of person that thought Jiu-Jitsu was not going to be effective in a fight. I was mistaken. I had my first shooto fight at the age of 22 and was doing very well until it ended up on the ground. I was man handled & defeated. I felt like I had embarrassed myself. I thought that I would put down the gloves and learn the art of Jiu-Jistu. Now 6 years on and I haven’t picked those gloves back up.
Jiu-Jitsu is more than just learning how to control someone, it will boost your confidence to the point you can tackle most issues life throws your way. I wasn’t the kind of person that would do well speaking in front of people, now I am coaching and I am able to show and explain Jiu-Jitsu to people. Once you start, you will start seeing changes in your body & in your mind. It is definitely a life changing decision to be involved in Jiu-Jistu.
