The Wait is Over!


“Good things come to those who wait”
“Patience is a virtue”

In June last year my wife and I decided to chase one of my dreams of owning a Jiu Jitsu School. We looked at many spots and settled on one. We entered negotiations that took forever, by the time we had agreed on the principle of the deal we had decided to hold off until after our wedding in August. Upon returning from our Honeymoon in September we entered negotiations once again on the same property. In October our lease was ready to sign, we signed and were told the gym would be ready possibly in December but more realistically in the beginning of January. Let the wait begin..

This week will mark the end of that wait, the gym is finally ready! We experienced every set back imaginable waiting on contractors, cities, architects, owners and property managers to get busy. I’m not going to lie and tell you we waited patiently with a good attitude the entire time. It was a roller coaster of emotions with high excitement and low disappointments but now that it is upon us I can’t help but think it all happened the way it was meant to be.

I couldn’t be more excited about the student base that we have built training out of the garage over the last six months. We have a team that is dedicated to making each other better, they welcome new people with open arms, they work hard, and they push me to be better. We are building something great here, and I am blessed to be apart of it. Our Grand Opening is this Saturday! Hope to see everyone at Surprise Arizona’s newest Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Academy, De Boa!
