Today I am starting this blog.
My intentions are simple: document my journey, share it with anyone who cares to read along and show people the beauty and effectiveness of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu.
I am not an expert or up-and-comer. I am a blue belt who started late in life. Maybe a few beginners will read this and be inspired a little bit. Maybe other people like me will recognize themselves in my ramblings. Maybe a few black belts will read it and laugh.
I am fortunate that I get to travel a fair bit. I always try to meet other BJJ practitioners on the road. When I do, I will share it with you here.
In one week, I leave for Brazil. This is not the Jiu Jitsu pilgrimage some younger competitors make. I am traveling on vacation with my wife and daughter. BJJ is part of my life, so when I travel, I will train. and I will definitely be training in Brazil. But don't hold it against me if I'm not living at the academy down there - my family comes first.
I'm sure I will meet some interesting characters. I am taking a video camera and hope to document some of this adventure for this blog.
All the best,
