I’ve been doing Bjj (Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu) for the past two years.
Its definitely one of the best things that I’ve done in a long long time.
I had been scoping the local BJJ school down the street from my house for about a year before I walked in. This was actually the second time that I had an intro, actually. The first time I had to come to grips with the monthly cost. This second time I knew I wanted to join.
I chose Machado Jiu-Jitsu in Pasadena for a few reasons.
First and more importantly Roger Machado teaches there. You can’t get much better than being taught by one of the 5 Machado brothers. More importantly Roger creates a wonderful atmosphere within the Academy. He really believes it when he says “Leave your ego at the door”
BJJ has quickly grown into a passion. But its hard, on the body and mind, but I won’t change that for the world.
