A year in Review.

A year ago- almost to the day- I started Articulate BJJ as a project to help me better digest my own learning as I engaged with Brazilian Jiu-jitsu.

A lot can happen in the space of a year. It certainly has in this case.

The goods have been many; travelling & training in Thailand, meeting new people, having great training partners and coaches, starting a new job in a new city, competing successfully over a dozen times, a national championship & seeing  positive progress in my training.

The bads have been fewer thankfully; car crash, injury, illness and hospitalization.

We need the bad to have the good, so I try to remember this and keep my complaints to myself. The highs come with the lows; you can’t be at the top if you’ve never been at the bottom. I try to practice gratitude, not just because I am aware of just how many are so less fortunate, but because I know how little it would have taken for me to be there too… Just one wrong decision here, or one decision there… I have a lot to be grateful for.

And that includes you. Once again, thank you for reading. The support I receive from everyone is more valuable than I am able to express in humble words.
