Why do you love BJJ? As the youngest of four boys, I originally learned BJJ alongside my older brothers as a form of both self defense and attack. I continued to practice and learn from each of my teachers, BJJ became much more than a fighting technique - it transcended into a spiritual art that has guided and forever changed the course of my life. BJJ is my chosen way of life.
