I think education is power. I think that being able to communicate with people is power. One of my main goals on this planet is to encourage people to empower themselves. - Oprah
That's right. That's some powerful stuff from Oprah Mother F$%king Winfrey. It's a bit of a stretch to use it here, but I'm going with it because it makes us seem sensitive.
I think Oprah would agree that accepting and communicating with others who are different from us is important. But, this is DSTRYR/SG and we're not talking about making friends with the Indian exchange student in your 9th grade class. This isn't an after school special, grapplers. We're talking about understanding and appreciating other grappling arts. Take Sambo, for example. Sure, there are some obvious differences between Sambo and BJJ. The first thing that comes to mind is their the lack of pant wearing. But, it goes much deeper than that, and joking aside, it's pretty cool to get to know what Sambo is all about.
The bros at Phuket Top Team have stoked us out again with another great video. This time they feature a conversation, along with some demos, between Silviu Vulc (Sambo coach) and Silvio Braga (BJJ coach).
