Below, is a heartfelt thank you from Darwin BJJ owner and head instructor Joey Carta.

How do I say thank you to everyone that braved the snow to come out and support myself and my team on Jan 23rd?  Well thank you everyone.  We raised a total of $1,174 between online donations and donations dropped the day of.  My goal was $500 and thank you so much to everyone for helping me blow it away.  This is the power of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu.

The community of warriors who will come together at a moments notice to help a fellow warrior.  I thank all of you from the bottom of my heart.  I know it would have been even bigger, but unfortunately the weather wasn’t on our side, but no worries.

To all on Darwin Bjj who got promoted keep up the great work. It’s all about the journey enjoy every step, but remember that it never stops.

Thank you Adam Sawyer for allowing me to get my event out there couldn’t have done it without you. To everyone that braved the weather thank you it means a lot that you came.  To everyone that donated online thank you so much.  To my beautiful fiance Jennifer, thank you for helping me get everything ready, and everyone we will be doing this again. Osssss

About the Author ()

I'm a born and raised New Englander, I've been around the MMA and BJJ circuits for years dating back to 2005. A Maine native, BJJ brown belt, and ABC certified MMA referee. I'm a grammatical nightmare but hey, you'll get the point. Being a dump truck physically and a blunt object mentally allows me to see the finer points within the sport of BJJ, without being compromised via politics, biased, racism, sexism or negativity. I've been around the country, as a medic, referee, setup crew, breakdown crew, driver, and everything in between that a promotion has needed in order to gain the inside intel on today's world of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu.
