😃 My 1st Stripe
It took me a little longer than anticipated, but this week I finally got my first stripe in Brazilian Jiu-jitsu!
In April, I started taking lessons and was up to three or four classes per week, depending. However, trips like going to Big Sur and heading down to Mexico prevented me from having a regular schedule.
I still have a long way to go, and so much to learn. This martial art is so rich and deep in its nuances, the more I learn, the more I realize I don’t know.
Still, it’s fun, and I have good comradery with the other guys who are in the class. It’s a very positive, helpful environment.
My ultimate goal is to become a blue belt, but I think that’ll take ~18 months if I consider how my schedule can fluctuate, and how much I need to learn to get to that level. So, I’m just enjoying the journey.
Here’s to the next stripe!
