Audra’s Fitness Blog – What is an IBJJF?

One year ago I would have never been able to figure out what this acronym stands for: 


It only took about 5 seconds though and the answer popped into my head….
International Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Federation

Beth and I haven’t practiced any Jiu-Jitsu but we seem to arrive before, after and sometimes during Jiu-Jitsu lessons and it looks very intense but fun.  Our new trainer, Denise Houle, is usually teaching most of these Jiu-Jitsu sessions we observe.

I wasn’t surprised to find out that she won first place in her classification in the IBJJF Atlanta Open this weekend.  I’m so proud of her!  She’s organized, motivated, intense, and purposeful…small but MIGHTY!  She works mine and Beth’s butts off.  (At least that’s part of my plan…to work off my booty!)  

Yes, Beth and I are still at it….at least twice a week and we LOVE It and both of us have never felt better!

That’s our Denise in the middle!
