I’m a purple belt at Triangle Jiu-Jitsu in Durham, North Carolina. I train and compete as much as I can, especially at US Grappling tournaments. When I’m not training, I work at a social justice non-profit. This is why I named the site Dirty White Belt.
This blog will be part training log, part commentary, part stupid photoshop tricks, and part procrastination strategy. If you’re looking for people who are smarter and better at jiu-jitsu than I am, there are lots of places to find both, but I dig the following blogs: Sandhills BJJ, Richmond Self Defense, Grappling Girl, Ze Grapplez. If you’d like to suggest a blog, I’m always looking for new stuff to read, so hit me up in the comments.
