Nice work, Aesopian. Your blog was a big help when I started BJJ a few years ago. Really should have visited more often.GET A RED BELT OR DIE TRYIN'.

As far as his example goes: dedicate more than just class time to your study of a martial art, and it'll pay off greatly. Aesopian approaches things scientifically, methodically, and heuristically, with regards to BJJ, and doesn't just bumble through his training hoping to get better just by showing up.
He's also one of the reasons why we've got the Training Logs section in the VIP area; because you get more out of your training if you document your successes and failures, and analyze trends and the overall course of your progression.

Almost three years. I lost over a year for a shoulder injury and about two months this year for a torn meniscus and mcl. My attendence is spotty due to career/family obligations. At best I was getting to class two to three times a week before the knee, trying to get back into the swing of it now. Our sunday night class got dropped, that one was the easiest for me to make it to. I had to take a vacation day last week just to get to a thursday morning class (I might have to do that next week too). I hope you are doing better than that.
I blame Bullshido for this whole fiasco. I was perfectly happy larping in aikijujitsu before I found this damn site. aliveness. Bah.
