Jiu Jitsu teaches me

John Lemus BJJ Martial Arts Athlete; Jonathan Lemus Mixed Martial ArtistI enjoy the discipline

I have been training Brazilian Jiu Jitsu for over 6 years now, and I wish I had been training my whole life.

Every day that I come in to train I am eager to hear what the mats have to tell me about myself.

The mats show me what my strengths are and where my weaknesses lie.

I enjoy the discipline that characterizes The Gentle Art of Jiu Jitsu & MMA on and off the mats.

I’ve learned that when I eat something that is unhealthy, skip a workout or just simply slack off, that the mats will tell that tale.

Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is a true measure of the hard work I have put in and also of the work I have left to do. It’s a martial art that requires all cylinders to function for me to improve both my game and myself. You are going to have a bad roll, a bad day, bad week, sometimes even a bad month. The one fact that remains true in Jiu Jitsu is that you can always improve your game as long as you are willing to keep pushing forward and keep putting in the work.

I’ve been fortunate enough to find in Excel Jiu Jitsu what people look for in a dojo and many times never find. Excel is a place where I go to surround myself with people that have goals and aspirations similar to my own. Excel offers Mixed Martial Arts training, Boxing, Kickboxing; fitness; and No-Gi BJJ training.

Tough training partners

With the help of tough training partners and great instructors Jiu Jitsu has taught me more about myself than I ever thought possible. Jiu Jitsu is one aspect of my life that reflects on all others.

In final thought, there is something primitively satisfying about choking the life out of someone, but truly an accomplishment when you can be gentle about it.

Keep training.
