Comp category: Light feather weight. White belt

What made me start: I needed to be more active and get more fit as my job has me sitting in front of a computer screen too much. Tried jogging, cycling and gym but was never able to stick at them.

What I love about bjj: Lots of things. I’m not just getting fit now but I’m learning an amazing & complex skill where you’re not relying on strength. It seems the more I do it the more addictive it becomes. The first few months did feel very daunting especially being the smallest guy there but now it’s something that I really look forward every week.
