Chet Palumbo: You have to take it upon yourself to make sure you are getting better.

One of the best parts about running a company serving jiu-jitsu players is the incredible stories we hear from our customers.

We love Chet's story because of his wholehearted commitment to BJJ despite constant changes in his life.Gold BJJ- Chet Palumbo

Why did you first get into jiu-jitsu?

Self defense

What has been the biggest obstacle in your journey and how have you overcome it?

I have moved several times since 1st starting training and have had to go to several new schools. This makes it difficult to progress and also to feel like you are part of the group.

Tell us about your best (or worst) submission story.

One time some 1 had me in a guillotine and I did not realize how tight it was and I waited too long and ended up going unconscious. That feeling of waking up after being choked out was horrible.

Share one piece of advice you have for our community.

Be proactive in your own training and progression and never assume that anyone is looking out for you and your progression. You have to take it upon yourself to make sure you are getting better.
