After Fridays interview and a weekend of walking & reflection I find myself overwhelmed with a profound sense of gratitude. For four incredible decades, I’ve had the privilege of sharing the art of Jiu-Jitsu, teaching and learning alongside amazing individuals, and embarking on a journey that’s taken me up and down the country.
It all began with an escape from reality but jujitsu soon became my passion and quickly grew into something much more. Teaching Jiu-Jitsu and having a full time dojo has allowed me rhe opportunity to connect with people from all walks of life, forging bonds that go beyond the tatami,
The lessons I’ve learned from students past and present are priceless. their dedication, resilience, and unwavering spirit inspire me on a daily basis to keep leading from the front for our Ryu,, as Together, we’ve grown, not just as martial artists, but as individuals striving to improve our mental health, well being, and personal growth.
As I reflect on this incredible journey, I’m filled with boundless gratitude for every person who has crossed my path. To students, past and present, thank you for entrusting me with your martial arts journey To the amazing individuals I’ve met along the way, thank you for the camaraderie and shared experiences.
Here’s to the next chapter in this incredible adventure, who knows where it will lead,
Let’s continue to learn, grow, and inspire one another. for we are stronger together.
