1)  What do you consider your worst BJJ moment, and why? 

Never had any really terrible moments, but there has been times where I didn’t tap early due to ego and really regretted it.  I hate when I let my ego get the better of me.

When passing guard I had a moment about controlling their hips being my main goal.

Obsession; I often became obsessed with a move and and only go for that move for months at a time.

Train hard and give myself pep talks through out the day

Flash is the shit!
