One of the best parts about running a company serving jiu-jitsu players is the incredible stories we hear from our customers.
We love Daniel's story because of his faithfulness to BJJ and his stability as a practitioner for many years.
Sacramento, Ca. Brown Belt.
Why did you first get into jiu-jitsu?
I got into BJJ like most people who started in the late 90's early 2000's, because Royce Gracie was the baddest mother fucker on the planet! And I had to have some of that knowledge! Also beacause my best friend was a wrestler in high school and was the reigning couch jitsu champ, and I wanted a shot at the title!
What has been the biggest obstacle in your journey and how have you overcome it?
My biggest obstacle is definitely staying consistent, life happens and if you don't put your training first it's going to suffer, the rest is staying healthy enough to stay consistent!
Tell us about your best (or worst) submission story.
I once put a teammate to sleep with a clock choke, he woke up a couple seconds later and literally sprang to his feet, a second later his nose started gushing blood, he wound up needing surgery because it caused a deviated septum, I felt horrible!
Share one piece of advice you have for our community.
Stay consistent, if you can't train every day, just make it a part of your life! We all go through stuff, but jiu jitsu is the best medication! Oss
