Musings, ponderings and various observations on the intersection of BJJ/Martial arts training and the living of life. I have no inclination toward either political correctness or correct spelling. This blog, such as it is, remains fundamentally an unfiltered gush of thought ... both raw and unpolished.
We improve, we make headway, we learn … all with the help of our family, out friends, our team-mates .. but sometimes, also with the help of those who would harm us. We cannot do much on our own. At least, this has been my experience. The students make the teacher; the collective mind-set of the five people we spend the most time with, shapes the pathway that each of us takes in life; those who attack us, develop our defence, those who challenge our thinking force us to develop more robust world-view. Alone … we are as a canoe in a desert. - JBW
