Master Lloyd Irvin Speaks. You Should Listen. Especially if you're a 'BJJ Bitchass'

Master-lloyd-irvin_medium

Master Lloyd Irvin is a name that every MMA fan -- or at the very least -- every Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ) fan or practitioner will have heard of.

If you haven't, please allow me to introduce him.

Master Lloyd Irvin is the head coach of Team Lloyd Irvin. He's produced world-class BJJ practitioners such as Ryan Hall, Jimmy Harbison, and JT Torres. In addition to being one of the best BJJ instructors in the world, he is also a very accomplished businessman.

I found this interview the other day and let's just say it spoke to me on many levels. As a student of Mixed Martial Arts (MMA), as a drone at my 9-5 job, as a coach and as a new business owner, it really highlights why and how the martial arts teach you so much more than just "how to fight."

One of the things he talks about that made me take a long hard look at myself is "BJJ Bitchassness."

I skipped practice on Monday because I had "too much other stuff to do." BJJ Bitchassness! I complained to my fiance the other day about meatheads who walk into my gym and about "time vampires" who love to talk about how excited they are to start training and how good they already are, yet who have never shown up to a single practice.

BJJ Bitchassess.

One of my team members skipped practice yesterday because he "was dragging all day and didn't feel like himself." BJJ Bitchassness. I blamed my first loss on an injury, not getting the chance to warm up before the fight, and a few other things. BJJ Bitchassness. I called in "sick" to work the other day because I just didn't want to deal with the monotony of the job.

BJJ Bitchassness.

Yes the interview is long. You don't have an hour to spend to better yourself?

BJJ Bitchassness.
