I've been training BJJ for six months now. Today I talked with my instuctor about renewing my membership with them for another year. I knew going into today that I was gonna ask about renewing, but something about today made it extra 'special'. I'm comming off my first tournament a few weeks ago where I had to cut weight for the first time ever to make 185. I stepped on my scale this morning and I'm at the exact weight I weighed in at on tournament day (183). I've lost ovr 15 lbs in 6 months doing BJJ. And when I was rolling today, I rolled with a new white belt who had only been there a little over a month. I got him mounted twice and tapped him with a kimura in 5 minutes. Then I rolled with a 3 stripe blue belt, he played mainly butterfly guard, but I did good job staying off his sweep attempts and was even able to tap him with an arm bar! I don't know if this is going to be one of those 'special' days, but looking at myself vs. six months ago, I'm a completely different person. I know my stuff, I'm not afraid to get tapped, and I'm catching people with stuff through skill and not luck. I'm starting to think that this is the thing for me. So my question to all of you is: when did you know? whenn did you know that Jiu-jits was for you? When did you know that you were good at it? When did you know that this wasn't just some passing fad or something that you'd loose intrest in when it got too hard or you grew bored?
