At age 53, I decided to try Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. Professor Rudy Vasquez and his amazing team/family of instructors, made me feel instantly comfortable and welcome. I feel younger, more confident and stronger. I only wish I had done this sooner in life. Jiu-Jitsu is just amazing! It is never too late to start your journey.
