Come on down, do a little Jiu-Jitsu!
Hi, my name’s Greg Pappas. I’ve been coming to Lauzon MMA for probably about five or six years now.
I knew Joe from probably 10 or 12 years ago. He did a a little strength training with me for a couple of his fights. He opened up this place and I kinda wanted another activity besides the stuff I was doing with my gym to break up the monotony of lifting weights.
I used to wrestle when I was young, in high school. Joe said, “Come on down, do a little Jiu Jitsu, no-gi grappling.” I fell in love with it.
I’ve been here ever since. I get here two or three times a week. I live in Boston. I own a personal training business called Fit for Life in South Boston. Gets me out of there for a bit. I used to be a competitive bodybuilder, way back in the day.
It’s completely different and I love it. I just keep learning couple times a week. Great bunch of guys here. We all help each other out. I’m a little older than most of the guys here, so I think they take it easy on me. Joe has a lot of patience. As I get older it’s tough to absorb everything quickly. I’m getting it, slowly but surely. I have a blast down here. Great bunch of guys. A lot of the guys became good friends of mine. Joe’s always been a cool dude.
Yeah. That’s it man. I love it.
