Letting Go of MMA to Focus on BJJ
Do you ever feel like you want to do something but have trouble moving towards that thing? Maybe you want to change careers or take on a new path in some form.
I think we all go through this changing and an almost death of our old self from time to time.
In the video you’ll hear me talk about my obsession with Bloodsport as a kid as well as my start in Mixed Martial Arts and how I wanted to let go of MMA and didn’t want to fight anymore so I could focus on BJJ full time.
This came about because I was cleaning out a car that I gave to my student and I came across some old CDs that we used for BJJ training back in the day.
For me, I have an attachment to music and so as soon as I popped these CDs in. I was immediately transported mentally to 2006-2009. I could see myself rolling with my friends and remembered all the experiences that I had during this period.
It was an interesting time for me. Because it reminded me primarily of my changing at the time. I went from chasing a the desire to be a successful Pro MMA Fighter, to wanting to jump full board into Brazilian Jiu-jitsu.
This was a really tough decision for me. Being a fighter was something I obsessed with since I was a teenage Wrestler who got into UFC and Mixed Martial Arts.
I mean the whole reason I got into BJJ was because I figured it was the best thing to compliment my Wrestling.
This video is a little different and more of a random thought with you guys. It’s not even that coherent but I hope you enjoy the ramble.
