I recently was promoted to a BJJ brown belt. The lesson I've learned was, BJJ is not just about techniques, it's also about the community, camaraderie, and the resilience you gain from this art, which is what makes it so unique.

I recently posted a part of my ceremony and my thoughts about what it means to have a rank in BJJ on Facebook and the amount of support and encouragement I received from the Jiu Jitsu community only reinforced my belief.
Numerous people were sharing my story and telling me how it was also helpful for them for their own life. So I decided to publish a version of it online so people outside of Facebook can have access or share.
