Purple Belt !

So I have been a purple belt since the end of November. That being said I am 5’10 about 150-55 lbs. Not the biggest guy. Up to this point training jiu jitsu has been one of the roughest things I have done period. Constant beatings I have received are countless. I still have PTSD when coming to train and get on the mat from all those beatings. That is why I find it funny nowadays when people come up to me. Mostly white belts , ask my opinion.  I don’t know, I guess I would never see the day when people would ever look at me as  a tough role.  This is just crazy to me!

Being a higher belt tho, I do relish the opportunity to help my fellow training partners whenever they ask, challenge my self by either handicapping myself or even rolling with certain goal in mind. Teaching this art and bringing the peace of mind jiu jitsu has given me is something I wish to do full time some day. Teaching just like learning jiu jitsu is a skill that has to be learned and sharpened. So I guess for now I just do what I been doing up to this point. Just show up keep training, it has worked for me thus far and kept me from quitting when maybe I should have. Man this art is something!
