Ok despite wishing I was a minion I am actually Marie Wilson, a “masters catagory” grappler living in Manchester (UK). I have to balance all those boring things in life such as actually earning money which gets in the way of training and having fun. So I am certainly not a grappling superstar (except in my own mindset!).
I am married to another BJJ blogger Peter aka Old Munki and we try to have as many adventures as we can both together and doing our own thing! My reason for starting a blog now isn’t just because I enjoyed writing guest posts on his page, but because I realised that it would be cool to have somewhere to log my own random thoughts and adventures. I did used to keep a BJJ diary but I was really forgetful about it so hopefully I’ll do a better job with a more public version!
I currently train and compete under Factory BJJ. Although I can be spotted at open mats and seminars out and about (an advantage of having a husband and lots of friends training at other gyms is that I get to hear about so many more events!).
So finally why minions? Simply – why not? Minions rock!
Plus as anyone who knows me can vouch they speak a similar language to me – especially when i’ve just woke up, am tired or I’m generally in a silly mood! I’m a strong believer in “keeping it playful” way beyond my jiujitsu!
PS – I am not currently sponsored in any shape or form (but I’m always open to offers lol!). Any plugs etc are my own doing and are simply because I like something. However if I have been sent something to review then I will always make that clear.
