I hadn't realized it's been over 2 years since I posted anything here. The blog has always been more for me than for anyone else, so it doesn't really surprise me since I haven't had many major developments since I got my brown belt.
Except that this past year I built my own gym and we just opened officially Jan 1 of 2020. Yup, Apex MMA is now a real thing and I'm incredibly excited about it. I've already got a really good small crew of people training with me and we hope to start bringing in some noobs soon.
I competed a few times this past year as well, won some, lost some, realized I have absolutely terrible competition IQ and need to really do some focused training on that.
And I had my first brush with BJJ related drama this year. I won't go into detail on that here, but you can read about it on the reddit post I made over here and see what you think about the situation.
For how momentous the year really was, and all of the ups and downs of opening the gym it seems like this post should be so much longer, but there's not much more to say about it.
