Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Studio in Tokyo.
I'm Yuki Ishikawa, the Head Instructor for Carpe Diem Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. I first started practicing BJJ in America in 1998. I was 22 years old and it was a hell of a shock for me. I thought to myself, "This is awesome! I definitely want to do this!" and so I trained for hours everyday.
When I came back to Japan, my head was stuffed full of Jiu-jutsu. I didn't get a job in a company. So while I worked as a waiter and stuff I trained everyday. When I look back on it now I realize that my twenties really were a great time for me. I made a lot of great friends in those days.
When I hit my thirties, even though it was small, I was able to open my own Dojo. I hadn't won any big international competitions and I wasn't a famous or accomplished competitor, but somehow for whatever reason I had a lot of students enroll at the Dojo.
