Staying involved in things has always been a struggle for me. I’ll start in on something and then lose interest in a few months. The day I started Jiu Jitsu under the instruction of Paul Hopkins I was hooked. And although I took a few years off, it drew me back. I believe that I bring a unique quality as someone who was not an athlete when I first started. I can relate to those who are starting from scratch, to those who are in need of something engaging in most parts of life, and to those who are looking to better themselves.
