you don't have to be good to start but you have to start to be good

I wanted to take time and reflect on all the great stories from this past weekend with my Joslins MMA teammates at the Grappling Industries Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Tournament.

The inspiration for me came from so many different people, from competitors, teammates, and friends. I couldn't even start to list the experiences from that day, to sum it up though, "today was a a good day" (Mike Mccormick, I listened to that song at least 10x after you put it up).

The haul of medals was a result of the experience and coaching, from our team's leader, Jeff Joslin, and filters down from brown to white belt. Thank you for providing the environment for us all to grow and share our game, I believe this is just the start of something special happening.

We all have different goals, however, remember "you don't have to be good to start but you have to start to be good".

Looking forward to the next one.
