At the Caio Terra Association (CTA) we believe that Jiu-Jitsu truly has the power to change lives. I know this first hand, as it has changed my life! Jiu-Jitsu makes us mentally stronger not just physically stronger. It teaches us how to problem solve in stressful situations, the importance of perseverance, and to deal with emotions we don't usually encounter on a daily basis. We learn the value of finding the right team, one that is supportive. We learn the value in finding the right teacher, one who tells us what we need to hear not what we want to hear.
These lessons lead to success where it matters most, in life. Statistically, 20% of all businesses fail within their first year, and by year 5, more than half will be closed. At CTA in the past 10 years, with 50+ affiliates only 3 gyms have closed. Of the 3, 2 of those were during covid.
Surround yourself with those whose values align with your own, who truly support your vision, are there for you in the bad times, and cheer for you in the good times. Above all else keep training, learning, and evolving!
Happy new years everyone!
