For me, having trained BJJ for 12+ years now, it's a routine I look forward and rely on to make my life better. Yes, we train for self defense and for competition. But, after some time, your Jiu Jitz becomes a total way of life. It's something you do all the time. Something you talk about all the time. Think about all the time. It's your life.
Watch this video featuring Relson Gracie (Helio's 2nd eldest) going through some of his stretching and warm up routine and talking about his training, his diet and his life on the mat. It's perfect.
