When I started BJJ I weighted 222 and today I’m 204. Y’all may not know it but I really look up to you guys! The life I lead now is so much healthier than I think I have been my entire life; All around too… not just diet and fitness level. BJJ has helped me get my head right in so many ways. I don’t know how often people really thank you, but you 2 are real good people. I take a lot out of classes and just general conversation. Thanks for being an old man’s corner and not even knowing it!
Four of my daughters have been attending for over a year now and they love it. The instructors are great and it gives me peace of mind knowing my girls are learning a great tool that allows them to be fit and defend themselves.
After 30 years behind a desk, I had the body to show for it. I needed a more demanding environment to actually lose the weight and tone up. My metabolism needed to be increased and a simple visit to the local gym just didn't produce the desired results. I needed to be pushed hard. I want to lose 50+ pounds. I viewed BJJ as intense enough to fit the bill. In addition, I wanted the increased confidence that I could handle a rough situation anywhere in the world while traveling with my beautiful wife. That’s why I tried Revolution MMA’s Brazilian Jiu Jitsu program in Benton.
We establish our personal goals together they hold you accountable. My initial goal was to lose 40 lbs. After 5 weeks I had lost 20 lbs and we increased my goal to 53 lbs. My first anniversary weight. After 7 weeks, I have lost 26 lbs. I am very confident that I will equal or exceed my goal!
