Success shared is success multiplied. And that’s especially true in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu where, if you can share your success – particularly through your experiences – then everyone else around you is much more likely to succeed themselves.
Danielle Kelly understands that well. She tries to share words of advice to young BJJ athletes whenever she can… With one piece of advice in particular:
I always tried to help people that… I try to give advice, especially to young females – everyone, or anyone that’s doing the sport or that wants to take it seriously – to surround yourself with good people. Because that’s really going to help.
Kelly wants to help the young generation of submission grapplers the best she can:
I know how to teach people, and I try to help people understand it. And I was a kid at the sport at one point and I think having that ability helps me help the younger generation who want to learn from me.
So, she sees competing at ONE Championship as a huge advantage for this purpose:
You know, I’m really thankful for competing for ONE Championship, getting that first call.
Being the first women’s Jiu-Jitsu match for ONE Championship, I think that was a huge statement especially like trying to grow the women’s sports out in the world.
