"Do not suppose that I have come to bring peace to the earth. I did not come to bring peace, but a sword"
Officially hit 30 total days of training today.
Thanks to these two monsters @haisamcdbjj
for showing techniques, answering questions, and being all around awesome guys. You've really made me feel at home and I can't express my gratitude enough. I'm really looking forward to learning more from both of you during my time here.
The level of skill and training here is out of this world. Which is probably why I look drunk as fuck in every post training photo I've taken. Survival mode only. Many thanks @carpediembjj_official
for letting me come through - I feel seriously blessed to have met everyone here, from the white belts all the way to black belts, some of the coolest people I've ever rolled with.
Extra shout out to @shoyacdbjj
(not pictured) for always greeting me with a smile and being so quick to laugh with me. I always look forward to seeing you at the gym. I've learned a lot from you about how to approach my training. Thanks for making fun of my lack of flexibility :) <3.
Final shout out to @tomoyukicdbjj
(not pictured). I got the privelage of rolling with this guy for the first time tonight, and it seriously made me feel like it was my first day on the mats. Some of the most graceful and beautiful JiuJitsu I've ever experienced. I had no right answers, and walked away with a lot of new questions. You are definitely a role model.
Missing in Action: @redacdbjj
