        But still, something about having a black guy or a lesbian jump out from behind a garbage can yelling "SURPRISE GONG SAU" at any of your big-named RBSD kooks makes me giggle like a little girl.

        Ok, time for a snappy comeback.... uh...

        OK. Here goes.

          Yeah, I agree. The best thing I've gotten from BJJ and Judo is the ability to keep a cool head and work incrementally while someone is trying to choke the shit out of me or crushing me beneath them. Thinking back to my noob days of "OMG HE HAS MY NECK TAP TAP!" makes me feel like a completely different person.

              This was badass. Like this dude.


                thanks for all the positive feedback. On a rainy day I just wanted to articulate something that's important to me and I think important in MA and life general.

                Its the main point in several arguments I have had on here with some younger members.

                The skill and accomplishments you get from training is a side effect to the internal battle to keep training. And even if you're not good and may never be good that fighting the fight and to keep training is important.

                BJJ is a great martial art because you get reminded of this every class and every roll you do.

                I have had a really shitty 2009 so far so this philosophy has become very very important to me.


                  Lovely post and put so well, I have also had a bit of a shit year with redundancy, deaths and the above 2 paragraphs sum it up for me.

                      Okay, so I'm 230lbs. Why do I have to be a "goon" though?

                      Great post btw, I had thoughts along the same lines dragging my ass home from training this morning.


                        Well put! I've been pondering this why question for a while. I haven't really been able to put my finger on it. You hit the nail on the head. I'm going to attribute your 6 years of seniority over me to why you came to this realization before I did.

                        Thanks for putting your thoughts to to speak!
