So, I finally did it - I finally went to a Brazilian Jiu Jitsu class. For those who know me, you’ll know my husband is a black belt in BJJ and has been begging me for years to come to a class. I’ve always said to him I’d come to a class if I had a pink gi (the suit thingy you wear). I always used that as an excuse, because I was freaking terrified of BJJ - I don’t want random people to sweat on me, I don’t want bumps & bruises and mat burn. But then yesterday, he damn well got me a pink gi and because I am a woman of my word - I went to a class today.
And damn - it was the most fun I’ve had exercising in ages! It’s both challenging and fun in equal measure, with a real sense of camaraderie and learning. Yes, it hurts at times and yes it’s not always comfortable - but it’s a new skill and it was fun and I think I may even go back for another one 💪🏻
Shout out to the awesome people at Takedown Academy for having such an awesome gym 🤘🏻
