This started as a blog about training together as a family, in part to inspire other women & families to get involved. As female participation in jiu jitsu has increased, as we have grown as athletes and as we learned that families training together aren’t such an anomaly, the blog has evolved. Jen gets personal with posts on ambition, challenges & achievements in BJJ, CrossFit & with nutrition, while Tom's posts are more educational, informative and analytical in regards to training. On occasion you may hear from the kids.

Another Anniversary

by Jen
Last week was our bjj anniversary and today is our 15th wedding anniversary. We had many highs and lows throughout the years, but training has played a valuable role in helping us grow stronger. Especially during the stressful times while Tom was out of work. We're fortunate to share a hobby that we both enjoy and that is so important to us - and even better, important to our children. My wish is for every couple to find something so meaningful to them!

Happy New Year Everyone!
