I am so happy today!

This is me today.

I'm giddy. Even more obnoxious than usual. 

Why am I so happy?

Because of the real jiu-jitsu that happened with the two youngest girls at the Women's Class this morning! 

Both Shelby and Rowan are 6th graders. They have been coming to class for about 6 weeks now and have been working hard. Sometimes, they like to joke around during class and I wonder if they are learning the things I am showing them. Today, they proved that they HAVE been paying attention. I saw butterfly guard sweeps, guard passes, a scissor sweep, bridge and roll mount escapes, hip out mount escapes and even a half guard escape. 

They ARE paying attention! And not only that, they are remembering what they're learning!

I know I am being a gushy tard. But I am just so excited to see these girls growing and beginning to really love jiu-jitsu. It is so exciting! I am so thankful to be able to be a part of it! :)

I know the feeling. When I'm rolling with a new guy I generally help them out by showing them a few basic escapes instead of going at it and crushing their dreams. It's a good feeling when you see one of them land a technique you've just shown them. I can see why guys jump at the chance to become instructors as soon as they're able ;o)

You've been biten, that's all. Now you have a taste of what Jiu Jitsu can do and how it can change lives.

When I saw my 15 year old brother armbar an adult for the first time, I nearly cried with pride :)
