I started training 7 years ago
I started training for two reasons. I work in the security industry and had an incident where I ended up on the ground, nothing happened to me in that incident, but it made it clear to me that I had no idea what to when I was on the ground. The second reason was I always participated in competitive sport, I had just finished playing rugby. Jiu Jitsu satisfies that need to compete for me.
The biggest thing Jiu Jitsu has given me is calmness, no matter what the situation is there is always an answer, you just need to stay in the moment and find the solution
