So I got to roll with Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu black belt and 2019 Austin Open Champion, Gabe Hernandez. While I was in Lubbock Texas I took the opportunity to set up my mics at his gym (Base Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu) and start up a conversation about how this sport is so good for the human spirit. We agreed on the benefits we gain when we train our minds to outlast our bodies. But what first caught my attention, and why I wanted to do this podcast, was the culture this dude has built within his gym. I asked him to give us advice for every belt color he experienced so that there is something in it for all of us. My hope for this podcast is to expose more people to the advantages that this gentle art has to offer. So if life is paralyzing you, go to your local gym, and keep that vessel movin’ with BJJ! Don’t quit, don’t lose confidence! Oss!
