Jiu-Jitsu Change My Life This Is Chantia Mitchell Story
I let myself slide for many reasons, I was obese, a smoker, a drinker, and sometimes worse. I met my husband and he inspired me to start lifting weights and I lost a lot of weight. Then I got pregnant, and I worked out the whole time and kept most of the weight off. We had a beautiful baby boy and then started jiu jitsu. This sport has single handedly done more to better my life than anything except my husband. It just makes you want to be better. The people have become my family and I’d do anything for them. I’m a blue belt now at Cascao Jiu Jitsu Las Vegas and I wouldn’t give it up for anything in the world. My husband, brother in law and myself train together and my son is being raised on the mat. I still have a lot of progress to make, but I’m very happy with how far I’ve come.
