Black-Belt/Adult/Male/Open-Class – Quarterfinal
I received a question from a 14 year old who is interested in Brazilian Jiu-jitsu. But he’s not sure if he should start training. He says this because when he went into a local BJJ gym. He was the only teenager training.
Jeff (his name), asked if he should keep training Brazilian Jiujitsu, even if he is the only teenager in his gym.
In the video response to this BJJ question. I tell a short story about an 11 year old kid who began training at our gym when I was a Purple Belt.
I go on to talk about how this 11 year old was originally somewhat ignored during classes. Because at the time we didn’t offer a Kids BJJ program. It just wasn’t something we offered. But as he showed his dedication and desire to train. Everyone took notice.
This same person would eventually go on to win the No Gi Pans and No Gi Worlds as a teenager.
This was of course about my good friend Chad Hardy.
