Candy and Iron

Today marks my sixth anniversary in jiu jitsu, training at Gracie Barra Seattle under Prof Rodrigo Lopes.

There are a few people I would put before jiu jitsu: my wife, for example, who was 100% supportive of my decision to begin training jiu jitsu six years ago today and who remains my biggest fan.

But there may be no "things" that I value as much as the time I spend on the mats learning this incredible martial art. I wouldn't trade my professors, my teammates and training partners, or my team for any other.
