My First Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Tournament
I have come a long way since my first days of being a White Belt… This fight was one of my first tournaments and first times fighting No-Gi (without the use of a traditional Gi – which is a much different experience than fighting with a Gi). I am now a Blue Belt under the Florian Martial Arts Center in Brookline, MA, but have not consistently trained for about a year and a half now. I hope to change that very soon – after completing a few major life changes over the next several months. I also can’t wait for Drew Donohue (my younger brother) to try out Brazilian Jiu Jitsu when he moves to Boston for college this fall.
Big shoutout to the Florian Martial Arts Center and Professor Keith Florian for being a highly skilled and welcoming team over the past few years (even though I was a little lax as of late). Great things are in sight.
