The Boy

About 5 maybe 6 weeks ago I bought my youngest son Flynn a gi for his 10th birthday, he’s been on at me for ages to learn Jiu Jitsu so now is the time.


Since start Flynn has taken to it like a duck to water. He’s learnt most of the Gracie games which I think is a great way to keep kids interested and most importantly having fun.Flynn is very tenacious especially when doing ‘crazy horse’ or taking the back with hooks and seatbelt control looking for the finish. His side control is also very good. His enthusiasm out of the gym is top notch also, always asking questions… 

“what’s that choke called again?”

“Rear naked choke?”

“No the other name!”

“Mata Leon?”

“Aye that’s it… the lion killer!”

So it was with great pleasure to give him his first stripe tonight. Couldn’t be more proud of him.

Long may his commitment and enthusiasm reign.

Love and respect.
