Jeff Joslin taught my BJJ class

Just decided to get right to point with the title, haha. Sorry mods if this isn't in the right section, just wanted to share a good experience.

Anyways, I just started training at Joslin's gym in Hamilton on Monday, doing the MMA program so basically doing kickboxing, BJJ, submission wrestling, and boxing. I've been an athlete my whole life (mainly competitive hockey), and I started up BJJ classes in September and basically fell in love. Which has led me to continue to pursue more combat disciplines.

Anyways, Wednesday night I had my first submission wrestling class at Joslin's gym, and I was lucky enough to have Jeff teach for my first time there. The instructors vary as he mainly teaches advanced kickboxing and BJJ. It was my first experience meeting (and training) with a UFC fighter, and it was very exciting. Jeff is a great guy, and is just so knowledgeable, I felt like I got so much out of one class with him. One thing I noticed is he is HUGE, I can't believe he is able to make 170, he looks like a MW for sure, I'm really curious to what weight he walks around at.

Just felt like sharing a great experience with you guys, since it was really quit exciting for me. His dad taught our kickboxing class tonight, and he's just as good. I learn so much in an hour it's ridiculous.

But yeah I guess that's it, I can't wait to keep going with my MMA training over the summer, I absolutely love it.

And that's the end of my story, haha. Has anyone else been able to train with a pro fighter/UFC fighter, like to share the experience?

The more well known fighters I train with are Horodecki, Hominick, Clements and Stout. Sparring gets a little intense lol but there great teachers. I met Jeff at last years Canadian open and hes seems like a good guy and hes a great fighter, you can learn alot from him.

Apparently a few days before I joined our gym Dan Severn gave a session, I wish I could have met him.

That's awesome though that you get to train with Joslin, he seems like a pretty solid fighter, and anyone in the UFC can surely provide you insight which will help in the long run!

Ah.. I get it, so he was running away from Quarry to raise money? It all makes sense now!
