Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is Part of My Life This week was fully dedicated to Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. This was hands down the best week of Jiu Jitsu I've ever been apart of. Tuesday was almost packed full and it was just a plain BJJ class with a couple of throws. Thursday was a No-gi self-defense Jiu Jitsu day. This was really fun. I had never done any striking with Jiu Jitsu before this and I actually prefer it to regular Jiu Jitsu. I think it's better to do self-defense Jiu Jitsu because its a more realistic approach to how most of us would apply what we learn. My experience with Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and Mixed Martial Arts has been amazing. I look to compete in a few years but for now I am loving the strides I make while sparring. I like sparring with Danny who is a purple belt (I'm a white Belt) because I am forced to push every single part of my game past my abilities. I love to push myself because knowing that I have given every bit of effort is how I ensure growth and maturity. I think it's official. Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is part of my life now. Tenbears MMA Academy has been so instrumental in my new path. I just want to get myself in the best possible shape and I also want to be a fighter someday. This past week of BJJ class was going fine up until the very end of sparring. The first five minutes I felt fine. Then, it went south really fast. I drank a protein shake before class because I usually never eat before. That was such a terrible idea. I was on the brink of vomiting ten minutes into sparring and my recovery time was a lot longer than it usually is. What I liked most about class were the actual lessons. We learned three entries into the arm bar. These were rather easy to execute while drilling, but I look forward to being able to do them while sparring. We also learned one of the many ways to take the back. I was actually able to use this while sparring and I got a nice rear naked choke in. Marquis Satterwhite - Tenbears MMA Student
