    Favorite quote from it
    [quote]Anyways, its some interesting stuff in there.

    However I think the biggest and best piece of advise is learn your fucking sport.

      IIRC, it was originally called "wizard" and got corrupted to "whizzer."

        "I never do anything in bjj that i havnt been taught in a bjj class"

        This by far is one of the most important points in that article. Habits are extremely hard to break if your carrying something over from previous experience.

        I've only been doing bjj for 3-4 months and when i roll if i ever get stuck or dont know how to attack something i sometimes resort to other shit that i was taught elsewhere (not bjj) and that shit doesnt work in bjj. Like i mentioned, habits. They can be a real curse sometimes.

                  From the 1970's on, growing up in PA, we heard it called and spelled the whizzer.
                  But, I have heard other folks, especially when I moved to Florida call it the wizard.

                    I thought it was "weasel."
                    Consider for a moment that there is no meme about brown-haired, brown-eyed step children.

                        IIRC. Which I probably don't, or wherever I saw it could have been wrong.

                        I know I had to look it up, because the guy showing it to me was Brazilian, and I didnt want to interrupt class with a Who's on First routine. Plus, I may have confused it with this throw/takedown.

                          well that and the "jap whizzer" which is so much better because of the racism.

                            Jap whizzer is a different move though.

                              is it really a different move or a variation? i guess that can be hard to determine.
