I first met Andrew on social media. We instantly connected through our mutual passion in jiu-jitsu. It's amazing how jiu-jitsu connects people from all walks of life. From Canada all the way to Australia, we managed to find common ground thanks to this wonderful sport. As I started to talk to Andrew, I quickly noticed that he was a kind person with a great personality and had interests in some cool subjects. From being a writer, wrestling fan, comic lover, horror fan, jiu-jitsu practitioner and father, he is someone that isn't only limited to one passion.
Andrew is a great role model for not only his kids but anyone trying to spread happiness and joy in a world that is too often filled with misery and hate. Please welcome Andrew Shaw to the Submission Shark Community.
Nathan is the type of person that leads by example. His ambitions are real and combined with his dedicated work ethic, I am confident he will reach his goals. From aspiring to being in the army and doing it to wanting to improve his jiu-jitsu game and achieving his purple belt. Always willing to learn and loyal to both his army brothers and jiu-jitsu team. He's a traveller and adventurer with the desire to push the boundaries and rise to the top.
Make sure you read through this whole article and pay attention to his message at the end of this. It will help you get motivated and understand the mentality it takes to be the best version of yourself.
The jiu-jitsu community is a family. The type of bond and relationships you gain from this is hard to find anywhere else. The art itself is beautiful, but the people involved is what makes it a great place to be. Whether it's your training partners or coaches, you will be pushed to your full potential, gain new found confidence, and live a healthier lifestyle. Thanks again to the Pierson family for being a part of the Submission Shark Community. We welcome you all with open arms :)
A family that trains together stays together!
