About Me

I'm a 25 year old writer(Mostly poetry) and Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu addict. I have published two books Emotions Volume 1: The Beginning of Turmoil and Emotions Volume 2: Better Days. I also run the blog which can be found here. The blog gives insight on both my Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and writing careers.  

American Nationals

Normally, Nationals(excluding Brazilian Nationals, because it's part of the grand slam) events never matter. However, the IBJJF has taken the right steps towards making the Regional and National tournaments matter with the new point system introduced after this year's World Championship event. I'm not going to talk about results here, just know that you now have another reason to watch American Nationals and tournaments like it. Not only are these the tournaments where the next generation truly shines, but it's also where they earn their spot in the biggest tournament of the year.


This post is an really interest poll. I'm free for the summer, so anyone interested in a seminar taught by me, hosted at Maguilla's Academy please contact me here by commenting here, by email, or responding other forms of social media. Everyone is welcome, but this seminar will be tailored towards those with disabilities. Date and details will be announced after the data is collected.
