In the can ...
My friend Marc Hebert is out from South Africa - and the last few days have seen him behind the camera taking several thousand still shots and getting a stack of video in the can. Being a digital media whizz, he has, after a hard night, nearly completed the authoring of a new DVD on Mastering Sweeps. This is the third in the series (the first two being Mastering Chokes and Mastering Armbars) and is nearly ready to be shipped off for replication. I have the 2500 pics on my hard drive, so I have everything I need to put together another Jiu Jitsu book sometime over the next six months. The title of the book will be Understanding BJJ - and will be an in-depth look at how to go about building a personal game.
I am messing around with the 'look' and 'feel' of the layout, and need to get that squared away before I put my head down and get to work on it. The featured pic here is my attempt at building a 'notebook-style' look - and comments would be appreciated. It wil be a large book - several hundred pages - and it will be very detailed.
I have been thinking about this book for some time now - but I couldn't do much more than think about it until I had the pics on my hard-drive. Not having the bits and pieces i need on hand was what was stopping thoughts and mild musings from becoming reality. I know this sounds obvious - but so very often, we can't move forward because we can't be bothered or are unwilling to take the steps that commit us to action. Taking the steps that commit us to things, is a real secret to transforming daydreams into reality. HAve a great Christmas everyone - I'll get another post up before the weekend.
