I created this page over three years ago. It's intended purpose was to share my journey, as an older student of Jiu Jitsu. In some ways I accomplished that goal, however in other ways I failed. It really boils down to effort and time, very much like Jiu-Jitsu... Yet every day is a new day and today will be no different. So with that in mind, today is a reboot of my blog. My reboot will remain Jiu Jitsu. But it will also incorporate other facets of my life as well. Things that interest me, stories about me and events which shaped me. All with the one goal of lifting up others and helping others see the good in themselves. In addition, I really want to encourage feedback. I'm not looking for atta boys, likes or anything to stroke the ego. I'm wanting feedback because I want to learn from you...the reader. However I would ask that your feedback be respectful and give others pause to think...including me. Feedback that makes us all winners in one way or another.
