Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Part of a Diciplined Journey

The world of martial arts can be one of the most extreme arts in modern society. It can be full of barbaric and egotistical Luminaries. Often those that have achieved black belt status can exhibit psychotic behavior as they take out life’s frustrations on students and opponents legally. In the most devastating of these martial arts is Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, this behavior seldom happens. Brazilians have learned long ago that ego is dangerous. Only at the highest levels does it become an art. Brazilian jiu jitsu (bjj) teaches gentleness and soft technique from the beginning, emphasizing respect and self discipline. This art form is by far the most powerful killing art ever introduced in society. How is this possible? In most cases it allows the opponent to succumb.

The opponent is overpowered by succumbing to one’s own mistakes. Once sufficient mistakes are made, the opponent inevitably relinquishes life, or in a training setting he/she taps their opponent out. This is how you signal that you recognize you will be killed or maimed if the match continues. Then you fight again and so on. You fight and perfect your art just like the opponent that just tapped you out. He/She understands and respects your journey. The journey of bjj is a metaphor for the journey of life, non “egoic” and focused.

Learning the way of bjj by removing your negativity removes most negativity and emotional swings. It can be done on the mat and or with the use of machine energy.
