Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Coach
Brown belt since September 2013
I am a Brown Belt under Leo Negao and started learning Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu in June, 2006. It’s amazing how we change as we go through life – and I have for a long time now, reached a point where pounding bags for hours every week – has absolutely no interest for me at all. I feel I am in a better place.
In June 2006, I was only interested in the ground fighting positions and how to escape them. I didn’t believe for one moment that I would grow to love Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and my interest would change how I feel about many things in life.
I believe BJJ is healthy in lots of ways – for me, I am gaining new skills all the time from my teacher, which keeps me stay interested on my path. I feel calm, contented and healthier in body and particularly, mind. Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu has become a lifestyle which extends way beyond my weekly training sessions – it’s 24/7 and provides direction.
My interest is self-defence based Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. I’m not at all interested in techniques that are purely sport based.
I am interested in the Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu belt structure and whilst enjoying the journey, also look forward to receiving my black belt one day. I believe reaching the level of black belt will be one of my life time achievements – and something that will give me a great sense of satisfaction.
If you like the sound of my ideals and share my beliefs, BJJ Lifestyle Team is likely to be the perfect place for us to practice Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu – I would be very pleased to meet and teach you.
