Today I did a thing. A big thing. Well, huge. For me. I competed in the IBJJF World Master tournament here in Vegas. My first jiujitsu competition with the IBJJF. And my first as a blue belt. I feel good about the outcome of the match I participated in; even though I didn’t win, I feel like I held my own. Which was a win for me personally on so many levels. A huge “thank you!” to my team here: Kevin Green, Darla, Mike Page, Doyle Cassity, and Dax Clat, for all the training and mental support. And as well to my training partners and coaches back home. I couldn’t have done any of this without y’all.Now, to enjoy my last night here in Vegas, and then to get back home and back on the mats at the gym to continue my training.
