One of the best parts about running a company serving jiu-jitsu players is the incredible stories we hear from our customers.
We love Andy's story because of his eagerness to take advantage of BJJ to train himself physically and mentally.
Santa Clara, CA. White Belt.
Why did you first get into jiu-jitsu?
Wanted to find a competitive sport that was both physically and mentally challenging.
What has been the biggest obstacle in your journey and how have you overcome it?
Finding the right balance between training BJJ while still doing other sports and allowing enough time to recover. I'm still working on this.
Tell us about your best (or worst) submission story.
While I tightened a bread and butter choke on my opponent, I rotated my lower body in an attempt to get more leverage. As I rotated, I felt a pop in my ribs and had to stop the match. In trying to submit my training partner, I essentially submitted myself.
Share one piece of advice you have for our community.
Make an effort to find good training partners
