When I opened the OBJJ in 2014, I could not have imagined how it would take shape. Since then it has grown into a community of people who amaze and inspire me every single day. I am grateful for the opportunity to be a mentor and coach and hope that the OBJJ community continues to grow in unimaginable ways. Below I have included some thoughts from greater men who helped shape in my mind what OBJJ would become.
He has achieved success who has lived well,laughed often and loved much;who has enjoyed the trust of pure women,the respect of intelligent men and the love of little children;who has filled his niche and accomplished his task;who has left the world better than he found it,whether by an improved poppy, a perfect poem, or a rescued soul;who has never lacked appreciation of earth’s beautyor failed to express it;who has always looked for the best in othersand given them the best he had;whose life was an inspiration;whose memory is a benediction.
