Why Do I Train Jiu-Jitsu

I train jiu-jitsu because I decided I would not be a victim. One key component to training is to “Never give up”.  For me, jiu-jitsu is the one sport that teaches you what to do, when you are on the ground. As a woman, you need to know this. Women need to know what to do if a guy attacks them and takes them down. There are several martial arts in the world but this one gives me peace of mind. Jiu-jitsu has given me the ability to feel safe again and be strong, not only for myself, but for my son. I don’t live my life hoping someone will come to my rescue because now I know what I need to do. I am ready now. Training isn’t about hurting someone or attacking anyone. I don’t train because I expect to be attacked. I train to give myself the mental and physical strength and personal protection in this violent and selfish world that we live in. I decided I would not be a victim but a survivor. I went from being left to be a broken woman, to being a strong, and self-sufficient survivor.

Hard Work

Hard Work



Many people think that it is easy to get in the cage, that there is nothing to fighting. However, it requires a lot. It requires time, dedication and sacrifice. These men and women all have a reason, a purpose to be doing this, but we don’t know their story. All we see are two people throwing it down in a ring or a cage. These two people aren’t alone. They have coaches, teammates, friends and families there with them.  As the fighters throw a strike or go for a submission in the cage, there is someone watching that is feeling each strike and take down with them, as their nerves are going through the roof.  I have so much respect for the fighters and I love to see the result of their hard work.
