Last Saturday, I walked in to the biggest Jiu-Jitsu class I have ever seen in my life. It looked like there was 100 people. I could feel my heart thumping from all of the excitement. The class was so large that everybody couldn’t grapple at the same time. Some people had to sit out and wait for their turn to grapple. It was a great experience.
I’m digging the team environment at Roberto Traven’s. He doesn’t care what type of status you have or how much money you have. You are going to follow his rules. If you disobey them, you may be kicked off the team. Last week, someone walked out of class because the training got too tough for him. Traven will not let this person come back to class until he apologizes on the phone and in person to everybody who was in class that day. I have already received my phone call from that person.
