Real world self defense training

Having thoroughly researched and visited all the major BJJ Schools in the Greater Nashville area, I instantly knew after meeting Professor Jeremy Akin at Brentwood Jiu-Jitsu, that his school and teaching style was special.  At age 43, with four children, high work demands and limited free time, there is not much room for hobbies. My initial motivation in taking Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu was self defense training. 

After a very short time, I found equal benefits of the physical /aerobic conditioning, stress reduction and camaraderie in a supportive atmosphere. In less than six months, I have developed a strong passion for Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, lost 44 pounds, eliminated my constant lower back and knee pains, tremendously increased flexibility and core strength.

All the above are indirect side bars to my initial goal of self defense training.  At Brentwood Jiu-Jitsu, students of all levels have direct training from a 2nd degree black belt Jeremy Akin. His direct hands-on training, patience and years of experience makes a profound difference.  Professor Akin’s many years of training directly from Luiz Palhares and Rickson Gracie definitely shows in self defense techniques that work in real world situations.  I definitely made the right choice in Jeremy and Brentwood Jiu-Jitsu.

Just had my first Jiu-Jitsu competition over the weekend in the ATL. When I first decided to compete saying I was nervous would be an understatement, I haven't competed in a tournament since high school wrestling over 20 years ago. All kinds of negative thought where going through my head. With Professor Jeremy and the rest of my Jiu-Jitsu brothers and sisters we where able to put a game plan together. The closer we got to the tournament the less worried I was about winning or losing because I was just focused on executing what we practiced. Other than some performance anxiety I felt as ready as I could be, win or lose. I can't thank Professor Jeremy and the rest of our family enough for drilling with me,  trouble shooting, staying late, answering questions, and teaching me new techniques. But what I am most thankful for is for what all those things gave me....the state of mind when the match started to think "hey, do your best, if things aren't going your way, roll with it, do your best to get out, your team is still behind you 100%" I can't thank you guys enough for the feeling that gave me to be able to think like that. If you are physically able to compete in a tournament, even if its just once, I definitely recommend it, the experience is well worth it. And I couldn't be happier to share this experience with everyone at Brentwood Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, I love you guys. Osssss!
