I've been doing jiu-jitsu for a little over a month; it has become my life-force.
I joined it with a friend of mine and usually we're the only girls in the class. Normally I'd be intimidated, but everyone is really welcoming, supportive and great. I feel stronger, more confident, and tons less stressed.
I recommend it to everyone. It's helping my depression, anxiety, and dealing with school/family stresses.
Today we did an in-class testing and I graduated slightly into a higher belt rank. I've been beaming ever since. I'm so happy; it was the greatest feeling in a long, long time.
I can't wait 'til my next class.
I love jiu-jitsu.
It's given me strength that I've never felt before.
It's given me freedom.
I feel invincible.
