Great times on a Friday morning
Today I had the opportunity to be on the mats with Doc, JBurd, Cody, Jeff, Issac, Matt, Jesus, Scott and Thomas. I have to say after a year or so into this, I remain as impressed as a person can be.
Where else can you get together with people that are obviously much more talented than you, work out, get into shape, laugh, and not get completely dismantled? Every gym I have ever been in has those people in it that just make you feel like you don't belong because to them, it is a competition to be better than you. Knowing that, I never kept a membership to a gym very long.
Tupelo Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and the guys in the professional MMA team, Team AGEMA, are truly different. They actually work with "you" to make "you" better. Who flippin does that in today's world? If you ever get the chance to be around these people you would be a complete goofball not to take advantage of it. Yes, it really is that cool. And you won't get hurt because they let you go at "your" speed.
I have attached a few pictures I took today as Cody Floyd and Johnathan Burdine prepare for their upcoming professional fights at Harrah's Casino in Tunica, Miss., on October 9th on the Empire Fights "Night of Reckoning" card. Granted the sparring between the two was very light but I thought these pictures were pretty cool so I thought I would share them. Thanks to every single guy there today for allowing me to be a part of your world. I continue to be in awe.
