One of my BJJ schools is closing. =( It's not final yet, but it looks like we will be finishing out the month, and that will be the end.
I am really sad. I love training under Ben and Mario. I will still be seeing Ben at Fabio's, but Mario said he is done with Jiujitsu all together.
The whole thing makes me sad.... I am sad that I won't be Ben's student anymore.... He gave me my first stripe. I just always thought that he would be the one who gave me the rest of the stripes I may or may not eventually earn. lol Don't get me wrong, I love Fabio, and I really feel it is an honor to be one of his students. He is an fantastic teacher, an awesome person, and I love training under him.... but... I dunno. I'm just sad.
I'm also sad that Mario is quitting. I won't see him anymore. Both of those things make me sad.... Mario said he is burnt out. He has been doing it a long time, and maybe it has lost the attraction for him. I can't imagine ever getting to that point, and I am sad he is.... I am going to miss him.
I am just really, really bummed out.
