Back in January I listed short and long term goals in my life. You can read the post here.
I am happy and excited to announce that I have accomplished one of those goals!
I am very happy, though it has yet to fully sink in. The belt whipping was exceptionally fun, despite some great thwacks from my teammates. The best part about this is I compete on July 20th in Kelowna in the CBJJF Okanagan Summer Classic alongside my cousin Mike from RDC Jiu-Jitsu. I throw myself right into the deep end without pause, I’ve e-mailed the tournament coordinator to let him know my registration has been changed slightly.
I congratulate all of my teammates who received stripes, belts, or just came out to celebrate our grand opening! I’m truly honoured to have rolled with all of you, and I look forward to continuing learning alongside all of you.
