Working full time as a Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu instructor is a dream, however if you decided to pursue this career you must understand that it won’t be easy.

It will never be actually.
Very often I see lots of young individuals losing their motivation once they face the first obstacles.

If you have high expectations for short term achievements you will have your feelings smashed by the nature of this business.

It takes TIME, PATIENCE, WORK ETHIC.
It’s not only about how good you are,
it’s not only about how much you know .

It’s about how much help you will provide to people.
The ultimate goal is help people to LEARN.
You only achieve that with CONSISTENCY.
Are you consistent enough?

How far you want to go out of your way to offer your students the best?
You MUST keep a mind open to learn and improve.
Learn the OLD learn the NEW.

Seminars, privates classes , competitions,training camps, courses are some of the ways to keep yourself updated and networking.

This career is already HARD! Do not make it even harder by not helping yourself.

20 years in this industry and I often caught myself full of doubts and insecurities but nothing like the sense GRATITUDE of living my dream to keep me on track and motivated !

My two cents to the ones pursuing a similar path.
