One of the common things you here a lot in Jiujitsu is how it becomes a lifestyle. More than just a work out or a class. Drilling, techniques, rolling, watching videos, dreams. If you let it, Jiujitsu can be more than you ever imagined.
Being a Martial Arts school owner (DAVIS MARTIAL ARTS ACADEMY HUMBLE TEXAS) does have its perks. I can train whenever I want. I can feed my addiction. Luckily, my addiction is Jiujitsu.
I had trained martial arts since I was 14. I was always excited to go to class, but Karate and Taekwondo never filled my dreams. The passion I feel for this art is hard to explain to people. Why does it consume me the way it does? Why do I think of ways to escape side control when I should be concentrating at work? Why am I awakened at night trying to escape back control? Why? Why is it when I dream, the ones I remember, are about Jiujitsu? I know, maybe I am a little obsessed. But, is this a bad thing? People go a lifetime never finding a love. Something to keep them going. Something to live for. Something to die for. Something that lets you know, YOU ARE ALIVE!!!! JIUJITSU...
When I am on the mats, there is nothing else in the world. Nothing. No work. No worries. No anger. No hate. Nothing except the roll matters. Its hard to conceive. Its hard to believe. Its hard to understand, even for me. Its even harder to explain. Jiujitsu... Why do you torment me?
Its crazy when I hug my wife, I get my under hook and GABLE GRIP. When I roll out of bed, its with a whale walk. When I stand up, its technical. When I shake a persons hand I have never met, they get arm dragged. HAHA....
Part of the lifestyle is the commitment. At Davis Martial Arts in Humble, there are no short cuts. The road from white belt to Black belt is a steep, obstacle filled mountain pass. No easy way to put it. But man I promise you, if you commit to it Jiujitsu is for everyone. Mat time. Learning the techniques. Letting go of your ego. And a willingness to empty your cup, and grow as a student and a person. I know for a fact, Jiujitsu can take ordinary people, and make them extraordinary. Heroes. Someone you look up to. Someone you are inspired to be. BLACKBELT...
The way you carry yourself, confident and secure. From what you eat and drink, to the clothes you wear, your life will be changed forever.
Jiujitsu is for everyone. Take a step torwards a newer and better you. Live The Dream. I tell people that all the time. They ask me how I am doing, or whats going on? My response always is, Living The Dream.
If your looking for something different, something new and exciting. Then look no further than your local BJJ schools. I promise, your life will be changed forever.
