Thread: the truth about bjj is out...

Most men are not so secure in terms of the martial arts preference. If they have a BJJ experience, it tends to be a major life crisis. They think, "OMG, I do TKD, but deep down I'm really a BJJ'er! I need help!"
(Women tend to be more open minded. I've met many women who have had several BJJ experiences, but still don't consider themselves to be BJJ'ers.
So I commend you on being so secure.
I don't think you need to feel uneasy, though. Generally speaking, I don't think people who are openly BJJ are that aggressive. It's the closeted BJJ'ers who tend to be more violent, because they are insescure about their conflicted martial identity.
So I don't think you have to worry about picking fights. Once you're out to the world as a BJJ'er, and you have the support of the BJJ community, you will probably find that the sense of conflict goes away.
Of course, I wouldn't now from frist hand experience. My friend told me.
I've heard theres a very good movie on this subject coming out soon. I think it's called Brokeback Mounting. You should check it out.

Could this be taken as an incentive to become better than your peers at bjj?? After all, you know what they say... it's not gay if you're the guy!

That's great. Execution, style, concept -- all 10/10. You, sir, get THREE GOLD STARS.

And honourable mention goes to "Brokeback Mounting" (damn, that's gotta hurt)
