I’m Paul Kindzia and I’m just like you.  I love jiu-jitsu and am on the path.

I may have a different background than you but we still have a lot in common.

I didn’t have a smooth ride in the beginning.  I was a complete “newbie.”  I had no idea what I was doing.  Earlier in life, I did a lot of endurance sports but found that my coordination, mobility, and flexibility were very limited.  I didn’t pick things up quickly in the beginning.  I kept getting hurt.  I almost quit a number of times within the first few months.

I worked hard and committed myself.  I did a lot of studying on the mats and off the mats.  I’m convinced that the things that I was doing off the mats were equally important (and sometimes more important) than what I was doing on the mats.  And then things started to click and I was able to make some progress.  That’s when I totally fell in love with the art.

By no means am I an expert at jiu-jitsu.  I’m far from it.  But I do love jiu-jitsu, I love writing, and I love sharing and teaching.  So this entire project is just me blending a couple of arts that I am passionate about.

I do have a “real job.”  I’m a personal finance junkie as well.  I earned my financial credentials in a never-ending pursuit of mastering personal finance with an MBA in finance and an undergraduate degree in accounting.  I’m a Certified Public Accountant (CPA) and a Certified Financial Planner (CFP®).  I’m an author, a husband, a dad to several rescue dogs, and a CEO of a private wealth management firm.

I spent a lot of years participating in endurance sports like marathons and triathlons.  I’ve done a number of marathons and have completed 13 full distance Ironman triathlons (2.4-mile swim, 112 miles on the bike, followed by a full 26.2 marathon.)

But as I turned 40 I ran into some major health issues and suffered from a brain tumor which required surgery and a multi-year road to recovery.  That process changed my life in more ways than one.  I quickly realized how fragile life is and how short life can be.  Now it’s all about making the days count.  Fortunately, I have jiu-jitsu in my life and I love sharing the journey with others.

I am passionate about three things (ok four if you count jiu-jitsu);

  1. Personal finance and wealth building.  I love helping people get out of debt and acquiring financial stability.
  2. Health and longevity.
  3. Building strong bonds and relationships with people.  Especially those closest to me.
