“I live and love to train hard and compete.  Jiu Jitsu is my life.  Pushing myself and my training is what makes me happy.  Win or lose, I will be challenging myself and I’ll be back again to compete.  If you want something, choose you’re training family carefully and chase you’re dreams to the fullest. Don’t let anyone stop you or tell you that you can’t, not even yourself… become your lion or lioness!”
