Guest Post by a 9-Year-Old

A while back, we asked our youth students to write a sentence, paragraph, or short essay on the topic, "What Motivates you to do Jiu-Jitsu?". Over time, we will be sharing some of those submissions, from students aged 5 to 11, with spelling and grammar errors intact. Hopefully you enjoy them as much as we do!

Our first entry comes from one of our 9-year-old youth students:

What motivates me to do jijitsu is a lot of things. First, I practice and I love competing. I go out there and try my best and sometimes win. My coaches, parents, friends, and teamates support me at practice and at a tournament. They get me stronger, tougher, faster, and more. I also enjoy stepping on the mat at practice, feeling great, and doing jujitsu. These are some reasons I enjoy doing jujitsu.
