About S

Gym selfie

S lives and often also works in Helsinki, Finland. They started BJJ at the age of 29 to have something difficult, frustrating and exhilarating to do.

The blog, S Tries Their Best, documents their adventures in Brazilian jiu-jitsu because 1) S likes stories 2) S wants to tell everyone you don’t need to be good at a thing to enjoy it 3) S loves doing BJJ and hopes more non-sporty weirdo nerds would give it a go.

S also loves talking about themselves in the third person. Hi, it’s me here.
