In 2007 I came to Derby City MMA. I left my previous BJJ gym and began training here.
When I started training here I met this young kid named Chad. I didn’t know it at the time but he would radically change my life.
Initially he was a young kid growing up in a Brazilian Jiu-jitsu gym. Training and competing constantly.
But he quickly grew into a young man that was possessed with gifts that many of us wish we had. Both as a competitor and practitioner and as a teacher.
During our time training together we sharpened each other’s abilities. And on top of that. I learned a lot about myself.
While doing my best to try and help Chad along his own path I learned so much about myself.
This isn’t goodbye as we will see him often enough. But it is definitely a new period. For myself as a coach and for Chad as a man carving his own path in the world.
I love my “little brother” that I promoted 2 years ago. But I’m happy he’s growing. On and off the mats.
He’s taking his own call to adventure. Finding his own path in his life.
