This are some words from John Brink. Owner of Paragon BJJ Dallas. Really beautiful words with a awesome video from the bestest guys!!! Watch it. It will take just some minuts.


Running an academy has been the most rewarding thing I’ve done outside of being a father. Not sure what I’d do without the mat and the guys here I have a connection with. I love seeing jiu jitsu change people. It can be a grind, no doubt. T…here’s shady, cheap people.  But someone once told me that at times you have to search through a bunch of trash to find the gold. It’s worth it.  I want to be on the mat as an old man and still teach. It’s what makes me happy. My heart and appreciation is with my Paragon family. Stay focused, stay together and keep making an impact on the world by showing others the jiu jitsu way of life – ONE TEAM.
