Tegan's Purpose:

"I have learned so much about myself through my Jiu-Jitsu journey. I have always been a very driven person and like to set goals to smash, but BJJ teaches you an abundance of skills that flow over from the mats into your life. Just a few to mention are, patience, persistence, focus, determination, failure, success and confidence, both in yourself and in your abilities. This gives me a greater passion to help others find this power within themselves.

Knowing the life lessons BJJ teaches you along the way and knowing the intrigue and challenge of it makes BJJ a very special art indeed. This is why I believe Jiu-Jitsu is for everyone as it has endless layers and elements that will keep you entertained for a lifetime, both mentally and physically.  My purpose is sharing Jiu-Jitsu with as many people as I possibly can".
