I’m a grappler. I play judo. I train BJJ. I used to do jujitsu. I’ve never formally wrestled, but I have done wrestling classes and MMA. I don’t identify as a jujitsuka, judoka, or jiujitiero. I am a grappler. I started in 2007 and have more or less stuck with it since.
I am not a professional. I am not even an amateur. I am a recreationalist. I compete in local and regional tournaments for fun, health, and the love of the sport. I also referee judo tournaments in the Midwest as I’m able to.
