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.
The culture I am trying to establish on my mat goes a significant step beyond mere co-operation. This is my goal ... No-one is there for themselves; rather, they are there for everyone else. So; if we have 20 people on the mat - you come in and make it 21 ... but you are not there for yourself; you are there to help everyone else. The good news though is this; even though you are not there for yourself - 20 other people are in fact, there for you! This idea only works if everyone is on-board with the idea. Something to work towards for the betterment of everyone there ... an ideal if you like. JBW
