Blue Belt

This past Saturday was exciting-- I got my blue belt in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu from Renzo Gracie.
I trained all through my time at Columbia Law School (although less than I would have liked . . . stupid classes), so it's not like I'm a phenom.
But it did feel good to realize I've learned something about knocking guys over and choking them unconscious / dislocating their joints.
I'm still sore today. Renzo has some tough students!
I hope I'll have the time and energy to keep training. It's great fun, and the people at the Columbia University Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Club and at Renzo's academy are a fantastic group.
