July 10, 2012
I had an incredible weekend here in Maine. My professor strapped me with his black belt. My wife said, "Pete, only two things bring tears to your eyes, babies and belts". It was emotional for me, I did shed a couple tears of joy. Everyone that starts in the gentle art has the goal of achieving a black belt, but sometimes it seems like a dream that will never happen. All I can say is hard work pays off. You will experience highs and lows in the gentle art. BJJ is not just a lifestyle, it's a relationship. All relationships go through good times and bad. Push through the hard times, force yourself to go to class, to learn, to train. Do this and good things will happen in due time. Also, registrations for the Immersion Camp are going well. Please check out the quick note below for more information on registering. If you register before July 15, you will receive a limited edition Origin gi and back pack!
