I went up two weight classes today and competed in jiu jitsu for the first time as a purple belt! I lost my first match and won 22-0 in my second match 💪 I love this sport!! Thank you to all my friends and students who came out to support!
Proud day to be a coach. Amauters killed it today in competition. Lucas Cortes won his Amatuer debut via 1st rnd TKO while Blake Genco won by 3rd round submission having us go 2-0 at Combat Night for MMA. The rest of the team had 7 fighters compete at the New Breed grappling tournament, Congratulations to Fernando Reyes in winning TWO division tournament champion as well as Woods Horace making his first finals along with Sebastian Franco, along with 4 other place finishers. Importantly EVERYONE won a match! Coach Montgomery, Williams, Bruno and Myslef are putting together one hell of a program. Great day for the program and more to come!! #ATT#MMA#grappling#jiujitsu#AmmyATT#MightyQuinn
@Regrann from @fightdriven_mma - @10thpelpaso had a great charity event today for one of their team members. It was great to see the grappling community come together. Coach Gabe from @fightdriven_mma was there to show support and ref some matches.
If you want change in something don't expect to get it by putting in little effort. Some may always need a hand or a push and are unable to hold on to the steering wheel and take actions into their own life. They are constantly seeking others for advice and help. Whatever it may be devise a plan and use action to get it done and stick with that momentum. It is just as easy to not do anything as it is to do something once you get past the initial stage. It all depends on what part of your mind and body you want to engage in. At first it may seem hard because it is not associated in muscle memory or habit. Once you take action and stick with it you build habit and it is just as easy to do the thing you want to do as it is to not do it . You can either take action and guidance in your own hands or you can keep on relying on external ways and hope it works. The change starts with you. With change comes change. You cannot do something once or twice and expect something to be different. If your mobility or body weight is off for instance from years of lifestyle habits it will take a lot of time and effort and lifestyle change reverse it. People expect changes to happen over night or hit a wall that is to hard to push through or brings up to much past baggage to move forward with. When this happens they stop trying. Know that it is a lifestyle change and that with dedication and consistency you can do it.👊✌🤙

Solid rolls today and even got some mitt work in too. @nuerabjj 🔥
Just a small look at the kids today. We are so proud of the hard work they put in and the bravery it takes to step into the competition arena. We won a bunch, lost some and had a great time. Thank you to all the parents who take time out of your day to bring your kids to class so consistently. Today showed what they are capable of. Don't forget to bring your medals to class on Tuesday so we can take pictures!

As a young man I moved to New York City with dreams of making it big and with a PHD in Sexology I thought I was sure to find quick success.
How naive I was. You see the city was a different place back then. Drug peddlers and street walkers could be found on every corner but it wasn't all bright lights and big titties, it had its downsides too. With little money in my pockets I quickly found myself working odd jobs in the seedy underbelly of New York's Lower East Side. It wasn't long before I took up residency working the door of some of the hottest night clubs. It was here that I began to forge a set of skills that would eventually prove invaluable as I made my transition from student to teacher. Like a knife to a whetstone the dangers that lurked in every shadow sharpened my instincts to a razor’s edge. It was my job to perceive threats before they could reveal themselves and like a hound sniffing out a young Samantha Fox, I was the best at it. A slight change in someone’s breathing, overt slurring in their speech, my senses became attuned to spotting the smallest deviations in one’s demeanor, cues that allowed me to calculate a situation and determine the best way to get a client and myself home safe to their bed. It was as if I knew their intentions before they knew themselves. It is this special set of skills that forms the foundation of a system I continue to practice to this day and night after night after night.
