I started BJJ 12 years ago where I earned my brown belt training under Grayson West at Legion 13. Prior to that I trained in Judo for 12 months. I found grappling to be more fun and a bit easier on the body. I was looking for a sport that I could do with my kids and also learn self defence.
I started helping with kids BJJ classes when my kids started BJJ. I found it rewarding to see kids improve every time you see them. I train BJJ for a bit of “me time”, and stress relief. Nothing better after a hard day then being able to go somewhere and let off some steam.
