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.
Our habits keep us where we are. They wear deep the trail.
Step away from some off them … and we can find ourselves undertaking an unintended journey.
I remember clearly, some 30 years ago now, making the decision to step away from my usual routine of training in the percussion-based styles of martial art (striking) and making a brief foray into the world of grappling. I’ll just make a quick trip to Brazil, I thought, I little temporary detour from my habits, and dip my toe in the BJJ pool … so to speak.
Thirty years later, I am still splashing around. Sometimes, the unintended journey sets us on a path that leads to a lifetime of adventure and joy. You never know what lies around the corner. - JBW
