    I now handle the steering wheel of my car with a thumbless grip.

    It’s the only thing I have done consistently for 14 years. My progress has been slow being a Ronin in the Army moving around a lot. But when I come consider my life, the thing that gives me the most joy is Jiu-Jitsu.

    I had a parrot that passed away last year. My life basically revolved around looking after him. For some people an animal is just an animal, but without sounding like an asshole, I would choose my little bird over most human beings. He was my best friend. I started jiujitsu two months after he passed in October 17' and it's gone some way towards filling the hole that was in my life. These days I'm happiest when I'm on the mats, learning, drilling and rolling.

    My life now revolves around JJ. I've arranged my work schedule so I can train more regularly. Everyone in my social circle now knows they need to ask me if I'm going to JJ before inviting me to a social event.

    Aside from that, I think my confidence and my ego have had a massive transformation. I've only been training 10P since November (done about a month of training with a purple belt I knew two times a week).

    I've never been a confrontational person but I feel nowadays when something happens that may compromise my safety (my work enviroment can be quite hostile at times), I'm more ready and willing to act if I need to because I have the confidence that my JJ is good enough to handle most of the guys that tend to want to pick fights with people.

    My ego on the other hand is still a work in progress but I feel as if I have a far more of a healthier ego thanks to JJ.

    To be honest, Katt Williams said "if you aint smoking weed, I don't know what you're doing with your life", I now think the same about JJ.

    Jiujitsu saved my life. I had lost everything, and was pretty much homeless. I ended up at my mom's place, and was on the verge of suicide. A couple of months later, I got a hold of the MTRG DVDs, and my life was changed. I watched those damn DVD's everyday, fr about 9 months. Then I began repping it with friends,. I did that for about 2.5yrs, even competed and won. Then I moved back home, and joined a legit gym. Been training, legitimately, since 2011, and I couldn't be happier.
