    Serious principles:

    "Master the basics." and "Practice every day. It takes at least one thousand repetitions to master a motion."


    Not so serious principles:

    "The after class brandy is almost a tradition..."

    And, my personal favorite;

    GM; "We got some pakalolo bra, you wann puff?"

    Me; "Uh... lemme raincheck till after the seminar. I want to be fresh in my head."

    LOL

    Miss those guys.

    Me: How do I get out of this position?
    Instructor: You fucked up a long time ago if you are in that position.
    Me: ok, so what do you suggest?
    Instructor: Don't **** up so much.

    Seriously though...I've got the best instructors on the planet...Two Royce Gracie Black Belts who are among the most down-to-earth and helpful people I've ever me.

    When new people have come to the sparring group (weapons), the piece of advice I've given with the biggest effect is telling people "Fight like you've got two hands."

    Me: It hurts when I do this...

    Dad: Well, don't do that.

    The first words my Guro told me, in my first class...

    "I do not teach knife defense, I teach knife offense. To protect your own life, I gotta teach you how to take a life."
