Meta Jiu Jitsuis creating videos, podcasts, and other media around jiu jitsu & mma topics.
You train casually and are sometimes bored and want to know more about jiu jitsu and mma stuff. You don't spend a lot of money on new gi's and your not looking to beat anyone up that has seen a Bruce Lee film or anything more intense.
You want to know the little details. Everything is something that could lead to your next break through. Getting the cliff notes isn't enough. You wanna fact check sources and see where it came from. Then you wanna write a reddit post debunking it all as fake news or steroids.
About Meta Jiu Jitsu
As US Marine I was blessed with a few combat tours and lived to tell about them. I became filled full of PTSD but not the victim kind. I became hyper vigilant. Everyone was a potential threat that needed a plan on how to eliminate. I became blessed with finding something that aligned with my core being. Becoming a Martial Arts Instructor for the Marine Corps. This was a job made for me.
While still in the Marine Corps I got to know the amazing UFC fighter Wilson Gouveia and he took me under his wing. I was his first Blue Belt. At the time all I could think about was becoming a UFC fighter like him and fighting professionally. That came to an end with a series of injuries. Herniated two discs. Torn my ACL. I eventually took a break from training and went to graduate school to get my Masters in Theoretical Computer Science.
After finally achieving my dream job I began feeling empty. I had reached the end of my current life goals. Depression and rage started sitting in. My amazing wife gave me the idea to go back to training. I was embarrassed that I use to train with UFC fighters and now I was basically out of fighting shape and all my old training partners had long sense surpassed me. Fortunately I overcame that weakness and got back on the mats. That fall I was awarded my purple belt along with one of my long time training partners who received their black belt. I had finally seen someone go from white to black, and it wasn't me.
This was a serious turning point in how I viewed jiu jitsu and the fight game. While being overwhelmed with my friend reaching his long term goal, it solidified in me the burning desire to once again teach and compete.
I still plan on helping the homeless. It's been placed on my heart. Not only that but young boys being raised in single family homes.
Supporting me while help allow me to continue to make content around jiu jitsu and mma training, lifestyle, techniques, fitness, and other things that you and I probably didn't know. But it will also help allow me to spend more time sharing the gospel and helping the less fortunate.
This is an evolving work and I encourage you to send feedback on how to make any of this process better. God bless and thank you.
