After 12 years as a Head Instructor, I've never had a large academy. All of that time, it's been a "side-gig" for me - always chasing that dream of growing it into something that I can be 100% devoted to.

As a result, there's never been much money that I've made teaching either. Several months along the way I was in the red, literally paying to teach my students. It would be easy to look at that and quit, because time is money, right? Wrong.

Time is life. From the deepest part of my core, I love Jiu-Jitsu. I love my students. I love watching them change their lives. I love watching their awe and amazement at new techniques - reminding me of myself years ago when I was them.

So why do I keep teaching when I haven't made any money or won any team trophies? Because I love it too much to fail. I love what jiu-jitsu gives me that you can't put a dollar amount on...it gives me life. OSS.

I've said before that my goal as an instructor is to create students that are "happy and scrappy." If you're happy, you keep coming to class. If you keep coming to class, you get scrappy.
I'm not focused on trophies. I'm focused on people.

First day back rolling after an injury, best friends back from being stranded in Puerto Rico, and my car door draws first blood before I even get in the gym. Go figure.
