The Joy of Jiu-Jitsu



You have to love auto-correct. Usually it is frustrating to attempt a text and have my phone come up with something I never would have said. However, there are certain times my phone does things that just make me smile.

My phone has never done Jiu-Jitsu (intentionally – there was that one time I was suckered into a plain-clothes nogi match, that I jumped in without emptying my pockets), so it makes sense that it wouldn’t understand it. For some reason, as much as I type it, my phone immediately wants to replace Jiu with Joy. Rather than being frustrated, I’m always amused! My phone is either NOT SMART, or is somehow delving deep into my subconscious with uncanny accuracy. I cannot deny it, Jiu-Jitsu brings me joy.

If I am texting you about Jiu-Jitsu, we are likely pretty good friends. There are few things in life that I would rather be doing than training Jiu-Jitsu with friends. Jiu-Jitsu elevates my mood. Some of my closest friends are those I share mat time with. It is fun – joyful really – spending time with these friends on or off the mat. Training is also a joy regardless of who I’m with, as the bond of Jiu-Jitsu is quickly formed. Training with my closest friends is the best of both worlds.

Welcome to Joy-Jitsu. Let’s train.
