Really getting into the Jujitsu – love learning, also a massive lesson in being humble. The gap between new and people who have some experience is huge – be patient, be respectful and learn from repeated practice – there is a lesson for life right there!

Learnt a lesson though – heavy squats followed by 7 * 7 minute rounds of rolling was too much – literally had nothing at all the last couple of rounds.

PS – sometimes it’s all about the cake!
