    Too much negativity! How about something positive? Here's some simple advice from a guy who just got his black belt from Braulio.

    Just a story...

    Brief and to the point, not only applicable to BJJ, but to other aspects of life as well.

    Thanks for the positive note TS :cool:

    Stories like these always make me happy, until I see that the person has somehow been able to take leave from work and do BJJ full time at some point. In which case I get bitter and disgruntled.

    Ditto. Easy to feel warm when you're stood in the sunshine.

    Well, I felt the same when I was working in a bank full-time and teaching lessons, running the club website, marketing the club and more, all for free... so is that ok with you? I hope so.

    Somehow = by working really hard to build up a club which dominates the local competition scene and ranks highly in the entire UK, and now has 15 affiliates and hundreds of students. People don't get anywhere without working for it.
