Nobody joins a BJJ Club with the expectation that they’ll leave it. Once you settle in you make friends and become part of a team. Your reputation as an athlete becomes intrinsically linked with that of your gym. Personally I was at the gym 3-5 days a week taking different classes and I had just sweated my way up to Blue Belt so things were pretty good. But then life and in particular work threw me a curveball which meant either seriously reducing my training hours or changing my gym.
