I was always interested in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, but a little apprehensive about giving it a go, I figured maybe I had missed the boat, no longer in my 20’s and with a pretty unhealthy lifestyle, surely it would be too much for me.
I’m not sure what pushed me to actually send the email and contact Dion at 80/20BJJ but once a time was set, I figured I had to give it a shot.. but I can bow out at any moment if its not for me, so I gave it a go.
My first lesson was awesome, people were very friendly and welcoming which put me at ease, it was not going to be the Kobra Kai karate kid scene after-all.
BJJ has exceeded all my expectations, I have lost more weight than I ever expected, improved my fitness to a level I have never experienced before, learnt something that is truly exceptional and met people who I consider very good friends.
80/20 BJJ is an incredibly friendly environment to train, Dion is an excellent instructor who has created an easy place to learn Jiu Jitsu, no ego or competitiveness just good people who are into bettering themselves and their Jiu Jitsu.
I feel very lucky to be able to train at 80/20bjj, I am amazed at how much I have improved myself by simply making the decision to get down and give it a go, Jiu Jitsu has become a real passion in my life and I have to give the credit to Dion and everyone at 80/20bjj.
