Stripes and progress

A week ago, our head jiu jitsu instructor, Emil Takeuchi, honored me with a third stripe on my blue belt. It was evident to me that night (and the first few training sessions afterwards) that this additional stripe wasn’t about what meager improvements I’ve made over the last six months, but rather all that is out there to learn on my jiu jitsu journey…both on and off the mats.

Here’s to all my Jiu Jitsu brothers and sisters out there working hard to improve, regardless of belt color.  OSS!

More posts soon.  Until then, take care of each other!
