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.

Three years ago today I stepped on a bjj mat for the first time. I had no expectation that my life would be transformed in the way that it has. I have built confidence, challenged myself in new ways and brought amazing people into my life. It just goes to show you that you never know what life has in store for you. To think that I almost backed out of trying the class while we were in the parking lot.
