Raised by a single mother who was always working growing up I never really did any sports, not until middle school where all the popular kids either played soccer or played football. I was a nerdy award kid in middle school so I was never invited by friends to come join them in the cool sports. In 7th grade the High school Wrestling coach came to my school recruiting new wrestlers and obviously being a very contact sport the cool kids started making fun of it but Coach Burton encouraged me to join and he mention it would help me loose weight. So I did and that’s where the old scared award kid who was scared of getting out of his comfort zone started to fade away and I became a new person. The great Dan Gable once said, “once you’ve wrestled, everything else in life is easy”. When I got to High School all I wanted was the varsity spot at my weight class and I did accomplish that goal but after our first meet I came to realize that I had a lot of work to do.
Life doesn’t always goes as planned and I learned that at a very early stage in my life- I felt short of my one dream, what I had dedicated 4 years of my life to. I felt short of becoming a State Champion in Wrestling this was my lowest point in life as an athlete and for the next three years of no training it would keep me up at night, and one day I discovered Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, in all honesty I can say that Jiu Jitsu saved my life and it made me realize that it’s not the goal that matter but the effort you put in and the journey along the way. That sour experience from wrestling helped me realize that we all fail, and I will fail 100 times again but that’s not what matter but the effort I put towards my goals and that’s what I want to teach my students and help them set goals and accomplish them, help my students be uncommon athletes among uncommon people!
