I sat down to read this book and was not able to put it down until I had finished it twice. Great stories from Professor Tooke as well as amazing life lessons. He shares highs and lows, wins and losses and does so in a way that shows great humility and the outstanding leader that he is. The thing I took away from this book is that it paints a real picture of what challenges really are like, and not only the discipline it took for him to push through but also how he has surrounded himself with the right people to continue to believe in and push him. This book is more than worth your time and will be something you keep going back to for lessons, motivation or even just a good smile.
I loved seeing Travis's journey and growth from a teen amazed by the Gracies' Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, to training in their organization, and then learning to navigate the world of business using the same guts and gumption that got him to black belt. Funny, endearing, and a joy to read. More than just a martial arts story, it's a story about what it takes to achieve any goals in business and in life.
This is a must for any BJJ or Martial Arts practitioner! This story of adversity is great and can be easily related to by anyone who has have ever struggled looking, finding and following their passion. It also shows the use of a positive mindset that is willing to work towards goals, turning them into dreams. This is also a must read for any Martial Arts Academy owner or possible future owner. Highly recommended!!!
