One of my newest yellow belts, Apollo. He is already a brown belt in another system and is now training with me to further his martial arts education. True black belt before he even receives one, not afraid to start new and empty his cup.

When you have a small training group day in and day out, great things can happen (and very stupid pictures can be taken). This is my core group, we constantly assess positions, think of counters and try to murder each others games. Each of us have a different style, but on this day we wore our belts like ties and tucked in our GI tops in for a family photo. Four dudes in my life that I owe a large portion of my Jiu Jitsu to. Without drilling and training with these guys, I would be absolutely positively nowhere.

Awesome morning sessions at Urban HIIT FITT. Burning out with bicycle crunches at the end. So many people looked like the floor was moving. (at Kri Chay’s Urban HIIT FITT Training Center)

Monday I was able to reward some of my Little Master students (ages 3-6) with their new sashes! They have all been so patient and ready to rank up. Super fun time. #martialarts #DFMAC

Don’t post about my losses much, but they happen all the time. Win or learn, never actually lose, it’s part of it all. Anyway, at Sunday’s tournament a dude with the nickname of Moose, choked me so hard he ripped my Gi collar. These things aren’t easy to rip… #BJJ #BrazilianJiuJitsu

There is nothing better than competing with people who are just great human beings. Awesome athletes, intelligent fighters and super respectful individuals! I’m so grateful to be in a sport/martial art that breeds this type of person. So privileged to meet all the people I have met in my short time doing this!! #BJJ #BrazilianJiuJitsu
