“BJJ has been very therapeutic for me helping me mentally, physically, emotionally, & spiritually”

I train BJJ because it has given me the ability to accomplish anything that I set my mind to. I first began training BJJ when I was around 14, 15 years old. I train BJJ because it taught me valuable lessons about myself and life. I had no idea how much BJJ would impact my day to day life. I started training because I used to get targeted by bullies and I wanted to learn how to stand up for myself.

I knew that I wanted to train so one day I can become a black belt. After nearly 10 years of training overcoming my biggest adversity. Here I am now with my head held high finally proud of who I am. BJJ gave me confidence, strength & so much more. BJJ has been very therapeutic for me helping me mentally, physically, emotionally, & spiritually. I train because it’s provided me with a better way of life. Helping me escape my circumstances. Giving me the opportunities I never thought I would ever be able to have.

I train BJJ to help myself grow through life not just go through it. Ever since I started training BJJ I noticed a significant difference in the way I carry myself. I hold myself so much differently ever since I began my journey in BJJ. Not only just a sport but a way of life. A lot of people in my life never really understood it. Telling me that Jiu Jitsu is not the answer. But in fact, to me, Jiu Jitsu was the answer. BJJ has made this biggest imprint on my life more than anything I have ever accomplished. I owe Jiu Jitsu my life. I have never met so many people who genuinely cared about me and my well being until I began training BJJ.

My BJJ training partners and professors have been the biggest support group in my entire life. Even when my life felt like it was falling apart. I just trained. Some how some way Jiu Jitsu made everything better. There has never been a time where I wish I never went to Jiu Jitsu class. So thankful for all of my training partners down at Complete MMA. All the coaching staff and everybody behind the scenes who give us the chance to be able to train in such an environment.

Thank you.
Sincerely yours BJJ purple belt Alex Worrall.
