Congrats Junior Pastrana-New Savarese Jiu-Jitsu purplebelt
Beware of the old guy in an fighting art where most of the young people quit 🙂 Congrats to my man Junior JR Pastrana on receiving his purplebelt tonight. Every day, I see, young, fully abled BJJ students of myself and others quit. Make every excuse for doing so. Minor injury, drive too far, work, busy, it’s hard, I’m not good, belts etc. one of the biggest things we need to learn is our journey is our own.
Find Your Why!
We need to find our “why”. Everyone does BJJ for a different reason and some get different things out of it but the one constant is, we must persevere, we must show up, we must continue our personal growth. I have great respect for those who take their lumps, go home physically sore but mentally stronger and do it all over again the next day. There is no quit in them. Challenges and roadblocks come in front of them. Walls. But they figure a way over the wall or around it. That’s my Junior. I know his challenges and I know his perseverance. Congrats , i am proud of you.
