My name is Kenneth Ureña Araya, I am 10 years old, I live in Cartago, Costa Rica. I started to train BJJ August 29 , 2016; proximally 1 year and 10 months ago. I started to train BJJ because I was being a victim of bullying at the school, because of that my parents were looking for a sport that can help me release stress because the situation and at the same time teach me a better way to handle situations like bullying in my life. Since the moment I started to train BJJ, I felt in love of the sport and I give my very best in every training and competition, the competition, the people I met, how to see that everyone encourage to each other in order to just get a technique right...
