Where I was, Where I am, Where I want to be...
Where I was, I very little skill and also any type of speed, strength and agility. I remember rolling with bart for the first time ever, He kicked my butt 500 different ways.... Only later did I learn that nearly everyone that happens to.
Where I am.... last month I been only averaging about 2 classes a week, life, weather, and just the feeling of being burned out gets to me. I am not a professional athlete of any sorts, I have a career. Last week I went back to 3-4 classes, I started weight training and that is helping a lot, I just want to be in better health so I can enjoy my life more.
Where I want to be, I want to lose the last 40 lbs. This next year, is going all be about just improving my bjj overall. I have a lot to learn, but now I have a better chance than I had when I first started. I want to make my guard great. Its what I pull people to, just to practice, it does get passed often, but I take the guard position just to learn more about it. I often try new things from guard to force myself to learn.
In other news, I will be testing for blue belt this week. It will be 2 1/2 years total as a white belt ( 1 1/2 years under a different style of jiu jitsu) ... Its been a long time. Very nervous about the test! Wish me luck!
