brazilian jiu-jitsu


In the three years I have been training, I have picked up some mantras that I live by and tap by on the mats.


To understand why I fell in love with the sport of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, we must travel back over a decade to when I was in the sixth grade.

We had the chance to see inside the MMA program at Gracie Barra Katy which is led by Professor Patrick Applegate and coach Alex Cisne.

In the world of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu getting your blue belt means you have chosen to stick with the sport, but getting your purple belt means you have made a life long change.
