    Hobbyists run the world, Joe.
    I think it might be when he literally gets paid to do JuiJitsu unless he is no longer getting paid to teach. I am not all up on his business.

    Sit the fuck down, egomaniac.
    But I could have killed many with: Since In Judo, Ippon is symbolic of death (I so feel like this is exactly the type of argument Rabbit would make)

    Oh dear, you have been doing so well.

    You're not rotating too quickly again around a swiftly tilting planet, are you?

    Hush now, Rabbit.

    And his modest gospel,

    was then repeated many times,

    and even used as anecdotal reason to edify other talespinners,

    such as the Jo man who autobiographically said he fought Musashi to a draw

    with a shortened stick in their second match, after being soundly beaten in the first.
    Lol, autohagiography...

    Every last fucking one of you.

    Especially you.
    Your not wrong in some regards, as I prefer the sport stuff in so many ways......
    Yet I train at a Roy Harris affiliate currently despite the fact that Clark Gracie is on the same fucking street.
    Or that Victory is about the same distance of a drive away and I really like Baker, Jocko, and Dean, and I especially like that style of submission grappling.
    I have my reasons for being where I am, and where I am and I am extremely happy there.
    But its weird cause its weird to be at a place that feels a bit disconnected from the BJJ scene here in San Diego.
    We do have an open mat that is open to everyone for free and their are a large number of other open mats like that, that I can go to around the city.
