Alright, so this post is going to be a bit more personal rather than most of my informative posts. I just feel so excited to share this with you all! Well, as many of you may know, around this time last year I was faced with a severe concussion. Due to this concussion I have not been healed or cleared by doctors to fight again yet. Not being able to fight has been driving me CRAZY. So last weekend when Grappling Industries came to Boston, Massachusetts for the very first time, I competed in my first Brazilian Jiu Jitsu tournament! Now the outcome wasn’t exactly what I had hoped for but I still had so much fun. I am so thankful that I got to COMPETE, I’ve really missed feeling that sense of competion. As you all know, I am a striker. My experience is in Karate, Kickboxing & Muay Thai. So Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is so new to me! I’ve only been working my ground game for a few months now. So I am thankful for everything that happened this past Saturday. I am thankful because I learned so much about what exactly I need to work on! Anyways, I can’t wait to train hard and come back even stronger for my next competion.
