Well this weekend I attained 3 of my goals that I had set for this year.
- To get my bodyweight down to under 180 lb. (at the weigh in i was 179.5)
- To Compete At The First Bushido Open (I got 3rd in my division which I was happy with)
- To NOT Get injured LOL (Fire dept is hiring and I don’t want to mess that up)
But this isn’t about me, this is about all the people who competed this weekend! It’s about everyone who has trained their butts off and came out to compete on a crappy miserable, rain stormy day!
It shows the drive and passion they have for Jiu Jitsu, for Competion, and for being a part of their TEAM!
See a lot of people who have never tried Jiu Jitsu have NO IDEA just how damn hard and technical the sport is!
They just see 2 guys rolling around (which some guys just cant handle anyways). They dont see it as a “Real Man’s Sport” like say Boxing. Well let me tell you it is one hell of a hard sport and one of the best ways you could exercise! It may look easy but you can’t imagine how hard physically this is.
I can take anyone who is in good shape and after 5 minutes rolling they will want to die. It’s a demanding sport that requires intense cardio, strength, flexibility, balance, and a lot of thinking!
It’s like a game of Submission Ches. You make a move to see what the other person is going to do, but those moves involve getting choked out and arm barred!
Anyways I just wanted to give a big thanks to everyone that competed and of course to ALL the members & volunteers of Team Bushido! Thank you all for coming out and competing.
I am very lucky to have such great friends and team mates to train with.
The 1st Bushido Open pulled in close to 60 Competitors and I think it was one of, if not, the BIGGEST Jiu Jitsu tournament EVER in Newfoundland! I think that is pretty damn awesome!
