Jiu Jitsu/Muay Thai instructor teaches students warrior mentality

Eagle’s Jiu Jitsu journey started in 2013 when he noticed a gym next to his weight room that offered classes. He signed up and was what he called “pretty religious” about attending classes until about 2015 when he quit.

“I quit for about two years. If you talk to Jiu Jitsu people they usually quit pretty often,” he said. “Mainly because you’re not making the progress that you think you could. If you were an athlete before and could always do something well, you’re not going to do this well. You have guys like my buddy Blake, who is 140 pounds soaking wet who just destroys guys that are 250 or 260, and you’re just not used to that kind of stuff. So, you’ll quit, but you always come back.”
