    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    why do you study what you study?

    For all the non-competitors: Is it because it is tried and tested self-defense system proven in the NHB circuit? Is it because you want to eventually compete?

    I study Jun Fan Gung Fu because I am a Bruce Lee nut-hugger.
    I study BJJ because I wanted to study a second art and I knew that I wouldn't be able to spend that much time away from my wife so I convinced her to start training in what ever art she wanted. She chose BJJ.

    ...now you know the rest of the story.

    Ha! Good choice man, grappling's mucho fun. If she didn't have a choice on the matter, what other art would you have picked?

    I've just started to compete in BJJ. I train in BJJ because it is fun. Oh, and it's good solid grappling.

    Serious. If I was a millionaire and if there were 48 hours in a day, I'd take up BJJ to compliment my aiki. Needless to say, developing a base in a submission art is not my top priority.

    BJJ is not about submission. It is about guard jumping and butt scooting.

    I train what I do because I can run out the door when I need to throw up from the exertion, walk back in and continue training without worrying about having to bow.

    Hard contact, NHB proven, inexpensive, close to my home training. That´s why I do MT.
    That civilisation may not sink,
    Its great battle lost,
    Quiet the dog, tether the pony
    To a distant post;
    Our master Caesar is in the tent
    Where the maps are spread,
    His eyes fixed upon nothing,
    A hand under his head.


    - W.B. Yeats

    I do what I do best, but what I do best, isn't very nice.
