๐Ÿ˜ƒ 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 donโ€™t know.

Still, itโ€™s fun, and I have good comradery with the other guys who are in the class. Itโ€™s a very positive, helpful environment.

My ultimate goal is to become a blue belt, but I think thatโ€™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, Iโ€™m just enjoying the journey.

Hereโ€™s to the next stripe!
