Quotes

Angela  on approaching jiu jitsu with confidence:

“Your personality comes out in your jiu jitsu.”

Josh on ignoring belt colors:

“Don’t worry about the belt color, just pretend that everyone you’re rolling with is a white belt. I try to do that with my teachers. I try to pretend like they’re white belts and they still fuck me up but at least I don’t get in my own way.”
