What BJJ means for me:

Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu has become such an important part of my life. It has shown me to never doubt my mental or physical abilities, to persevere no matter what.

Favorite Quote:

“The Black Belt is not about the piece of cloth around your waist or the certificate you put up on your wall. It’s about the person you become to earn it and nobody can ever take that away from you.”

– Nic Gregoriades 3rd Degree Roger Gracie Black Belt
