Present and Accounted For

Yeah I got my third stripe on my blue belt this past weekend.  At least I think it was this past weekend. It was a Saturday.  And I followed it up with an Oktoberfest.  So it had to be this past weekend.

The academy is still small, but it allows us semi-privates for every class, so I'm not complaining.

I got my wife's cousin into jiu jitsu, but he's out in Ohio, so I don't really get to reap the training benefits of that one too often.  Though it did give us an out to go train at a place in Denver during a family reunion.  That was slick.

I also got another friend to start training.  He has one stripe on his white right now, so that will begin paying off soon.  Hopefully by the time he gets his blue, I'll have something resembling a top game.


  1. Wow! Congratulations on your blue belt! If you continue practicing jiu jitsu, I'm pretty sure that in no time, you'll be ahead of that sport. This sport can not only make you strong and buff, but you can also use it to defend yourself, in case you find yourself or your existence threatened by another being.

  2. To whom it may concern:

    I was writing in regards to the Gym you train at in Woodbury, I recently relocated and was looking for a new gym. I called and was informed that they no longer offer BJJ in Woodbury. I went to the Stillwater location for a couple classes and they told me that you still may offer a small advanced class, is that the case? I have been doing BJJ for a couple years and only live a few blocks from the Woodbury location so that would be ideal. If you could please provide me with some additional information that would be greatly appreciated. Thank you
