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.
Red Letter Day
It's an exciting day for me today, as I am waiting to receive the shipment of my new book. it is travelling the highway as i write this and I am keen to take delivery. it seems only a little while ago that I was sitting in Coombe Abbey in England having breakfast with Geoff Thompson, who was bending my ear about getting it done. Upon arriving home from my UK trip he was still hounding me via e-mail, and asking me to send the chapters to him as I wrote them. I must say, it seems rather easy to do things like this when you have great friends giving you encouragement. There are always those particular people who snicker and gossip (usually behind your back) about the things we try to do, but I have long since learned to ignore them. One encouraging voice of a friend, to me, outweighs a hundred nay-sayers. Anwyays, tis done! I take delivery in a few hours. Already I have received heaps of orders via this website, for the book. Envelopes have been addressed as orders have come in - I can't wait to sign each copy and send them off. A HUGE thanks to those people who have had faith in me and feel that the book will give them value. MY SINCERE THANKS TO YOU! best go - need to check my e-mails. Train Well - train safe. JBW
