  1. No matter how good you get, someone else is going to be better than you (unless you are Marcelo Garcia). So don’t get down on yourself… if you are struggling in training, keep at it, the only way that you won’t get better is to not train.
  2. Jiu-Jitsu friends are the best when it comes to helping you move… they can all lift heavy stuff and they’ll let you know where the best spot at your new place is to put down some mats.
  3. True strength comes from within… but weak hands will never finish a choke.
  4. Happiness comes from eating a doughnut and not from having six pack abs… but if you train hard enough… you can have both.
  5. To tap or not to tap, that is the question.

See you on the mat!
