There are many amazing things about Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu – from the health benefits it carries with itself to the self confidence it makes you feel… However, perhaps the greatest thing you can find in BJJ is a group of like-minded people. People who have plenty of different outlooks on life and who are from all over the world, who have on thing in common: the passion for the Gentle Art.
Some of them are from the military as well – such as the British Royal Marines! Gordon Ryan has had the pleasure of teaching a class for them:
It was such a pleasure/honor meeting/teaching the British Royal Marines today. A group of the nicest guys you can ever meet and they are good at grappling as well!
They gave me a little gift before heading out which was very thoughtful of them. I love collecting pieces like this from my police and military friends.
Royal Marines, thanks for stopping by and you guys are welcome back anytime you’re in town!
The Marines were thankful to Gordon as well:
