Belt Rank: Black belt
I stared Jiu-jitsu 13 years ago.
I stared Jiu-jitsu because my cousins convinced me to. I knew nothing about jiu-jitsu, so when my cousin told me: Let's do Jiu-jitsu! I said to him: What is Jiu-jitsu? Have some girl's? Girl's can do that? I don't know if I can do that!! I had many questions about Jiu-jitsu.
Then, I told to him: Ok, I will try, if I like, all right, if not, no more, ok?
So, I did my first class, everything seemed strange, everything was new, I never had saw nothing similar before. But, same time I was drawn to Jiu-jitsu.
That day changed my life forever!
I never had saw jiu-jitsu before, it was new, challenge and amazing.
After that day, I was amazed by jiu-jitsu, and everyday more and more!
But, as all love story, I had good and bad moments.
I had really bad injuries, I did surgery on my finger, I broke my finger, my nose, my tooth. Because this some times I thought about give up. For 2 times I tried, but I could not do that. Something doesn't let me stop.
So, I keep going, I keep train, I keep believe because I can't stop.
The Jiu-jitsu changed my life forever, when you know it, you change, your life change, everything changes.
I still have many dreams, I want to be champion, I want to keep learning everyday, I want to keep teaching, I want to look back and know I leave good things, I want work hard now, for in the future live my dreams!
I love Jiu-jitsu, I love everything that jiu-jitsu gave me. The good moments always outweighed the bad times.
