'Deserve - ain't nothin to do with it.'

Equal opportunity …. one of the things I like about the BJJ mat. The mat doesn’t care if you’re black, white, rich, poor, a girl, a boy … it’s Darwinian in that respect. The pay-offs come to those who train; to those who learn, to those who figure out patterns and see strategy. In this way, the mat is a metaphor for life. Complaining and whining - doesn’t supply a better outcome. It can also be confronting in that way; particularly for those people who have a skewed idea of how the world ‘should’ work. In the words of Clint Eastwood in the movie Unforgiven 'Deserve ain't nothin to do with it'.
