Club withdrawal

Shortly after my schedule change and the increase in my kids various activities, I figured that there was little chance for me to get to FVGC. That really sucked. I would stare at the club schedule to figure out how I could get to a class.
Soapbox moment! When I was a kid, I remember my parents kicking me out of the house with my sports gear and my bike. And I wasn't the only kid showing up to practice that way. It was the norm. Now a days, there are whole families coming with the kids to practice. As Allen Iverson said - "Practice?!?" We'll leave it alone...
Back to my daily schedule review. The club offered 12:00 to 1:00pm classes, Monday, Wednesday and Friday. I remember taking a long lunch from work and getting to a 12:00 class. Wrong move. The roll was great. What was horrible is that the club doesn't have showers. And going back to work after training, without a shower, not only is it disgusting, but it is unhealthy. Skin infection risk galore!


  1. Hey Mike! Nice to meet you :) Welcome to the wonder that is jits. Looking forward to hearing more about your journey.

  2. Thanks Georgette. I've been following yours and other JJitsu blogs for a couple months now. I really love the community of sharing that you only see in BJJ. I wanted to contribute.
