It's a fine line between being highly motivated to improve your jiu jitsu game and training so much you become a worn-out hand-puppet for teammates to play with. I seem to be going toward the latter lately.

  1. u had me at hand...

  2. How could we incorporate bamboo trees with jits training?

  3. Don't forget this is also an integral part to training as well, getting drunk at some sleazy watering hole, then dancing badly to horrible 80's music!

  4. Charlie: Anything is possible in jiu jitsu. I'll text Rickson for his thoughts.

  6. That is awesome in so many ways.

    Mike, I'm certain that someday, if you work hard enough and dream big enough, you too will have hair as cool as JCVD circa "Bloodsport."

    Maybe we should make DSTRYRsg 100% Van Damme, and nothing else.

  7. Because clearly, if you can beat up a couple drunken thugs at a bar, you are ready to take down the champ.
