Here at DSTRYR/sg, we feel strongly that it's important for the growth and development of our sport to properly glorify its past and present champions. We don't worship them or give them more credit than they're due (exception: Rickson Gracie, of course). But, the truth is our pro-level athletes are under-appreciated and certainly underpaid for their level of prowess and devotion to the craft.
We have a long way to go (as I've said before). Right now I'd say BJJ/submission grappling is pacing with Ultimate Frisbee in popularity, which is just sad.* At least we're owning the pro hackey sack league.
My point? It's unclear, but what's important is that you watch the video below. It's an extremely well-made short documentary chronicling the legendary Tererê's (i.e., Fernando Augusto Da Silva ) training as he prepares his return to BJJ competition for Worlds in June 2011. It was created by woolfcub productions in the UK. It's great stuff and exactly what our sport needs. Glory to Tererê and good luck at Worlds.
* yes, I'm joking. So settle down.
