Here is the the converstion between me and coworker today:
Him: " Aaron, are you taking jiu jitsu?"
Him:"How Long have you been doing it?"
Me: " About 7 months"
Him: " Oh, I thought you'd be good."
Then he just turned and left me with my mouth wide open and the Ohh, no you didn't look on my face.
I try, I am doing more than most people, I want to be better and I have told several people that BJJ has changed my life and the me now would kill the me 7 months ago. I am faster, stronger, healthier, and my techniques are improving. The good thing about BJJ, it is a changing sport, it is evolutionary and new techniques are getting taught and modified on a daily basis.
So "Mr. I thought you were better," In a way I am better, and 7 more months from now I will be better, and 2 years from now, guess what, I will be better. So yes, I am better.
