Just give it some time

After every rolling session I’ve had in the past few months (since I’ve gotten back into BJJ) I get into this weird zone of self-doubt. Am I good enough? What’s the point of being so strong and yet not technically proficient? Why am I even doing this? Thankfully, I the know the answer to the […]

The importance of letting people know how hard you work

Actually, it’s not that important. Yup, you heard that right. It’s not. Even if your career is on the line.
