One of the down falls of Jiu Jitsu is a few bumps and bruises now and then. I have been pretty lucky to have avoided visable injuries lately but, this one unfortunatly falls 4 days before my shower and less then a week into my new job! I'm dreading having to show up looking like this tomorrow morning and trying to explain Jiu Jitsu to "outsiders". Andrew also got to spend the day looking like an abusive boyfriend while we went to lunch and shopping.
I have experienced some good shiners, torn muscles, bruises and even a fractured leg since starting BJJ but, the love of Jiu Jitsu always out weighs those painful times!
BTW: if anyone has a good suggestion for concealer please share!
