Most Jiu-Jitsu people are familiar with On The Mat (OTM) and Scotty, the man behind the business. Well if you don't know his story then I highly suggest giving his blog post a read. He recently was awarded his black belt and didn't earn it in the most conventional manner. His story is one of perseverance and should be inspirational to most who enjoy the sport. The road to earning a black belt in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is a long one and that was no exception in Scotty's case.
