Hey everyone, just super stoked to say I’ve been on the mats for ten years. I started BJJ as a teen (16) and worked for Grapplers Quest in high school. This sport has brought me hundreds of friends, dozens of amazing memories, confidence, love, health and most of all FUN! There are some OG’s out there who have been training much longer but ten years for me is my entire adult life (26 now). Looking forward to the next ten!How long has everyone been training?January 15, 2017 at 8:28 pm #1659585
Congratulations. That’s almost half you life.I started when I was about 37, rolled for a year and then quit due to a move and change in occupation. Started back up when I was 44 and have been back at it for the last 6 years.January 15, 2017 at 8:32 pm #1659586
I’ve been doing it about 5 and a half years now (although 4 of those years I was only training at college, all summer off)January 15, 2017 at 9:15 pm #1659587
Started judo at age 6 went into mma and grappling around age 21 did a little aikido and karate somewhere. Started bjj at age 25. Now 31 years old and still loving it.January 15, 2017 at 11:15 pm #1659588

I was a karate kid first lol!January 19, 2017 at 1:53 am #1659591
That’s awesome! Happy Anniversary. I’m only 5 months into my journey but I’m fully hooked and train about 10 hours each week. I wish i had found this sport earlier in life.January 19, 2017 at 2:37 pm #1659592
14yrs and counting…wish I would have started sooner. 51 now and some things are getting harder due to age.January 21, 2017 at 5:03 pm #1659593
Started Judo in 2005 and and later Bjj in 2009 or so. Life keeps getting in the way, but I won’t stop.January 22, 2017 at 5:07 am #1659594
I started Bjj at 26, nearly 7 years ago. I also did about 5 years of moderately competitive judo as a kid and have trained judo on and off concurrently with Bjj.February 8, 2017 at 2:47 am #1659595
Congrats! I am at the 6+ year mark. This summer will be 7 years. I started just before I turned 34.February 10, 2017 at 9:46 pm #1659596
Also just passed my 10 year mark, working on year 11 now, will complete it around this time next year. I actually don’t have an exact date when I started but it was shortly before I turned 40 and I’m about to turn 50 so it’s easy to get the approximate dates correct.February 10, 2017 at 9:51 pm #1659597
damn… My 10 year mark is April 1st.. We is old… 🙄But not nearly as old as Jack!

congrats. I’m somewhere between 4-5 trying to get where you are.
