    Top 5 Reasons Why In Jiu Jitsu Your Partner's Safety is Your Responsibility


    Top 5 Reasons Why In Jiu Jitsu Your Partner's Safety is Your Responsibility
    The relationships you develop with your training partners are some of the most pure you will ever have. Why? Because just imagine. Think about how much trust you have to have in your training partner who can totally hurt you if not careful and mindful with your safety and well being. If you tap, and your partner keeps pulling your arm, or neck and does not let go, you will be injured. Sometimes severely. Ever seen somebody do a heel hook they did not let go? Its horrible.
    Words To Remember Forever
    YOUR PARTNER'S SAFETY IS YOUR RESPONSIBILITY when you train Jiu Jitsu. This is a mindset and a culture that is bred ....

    The Vital Important of Saying I LOVE YOU to Your Children


    The Vital Importance of Frequently Saying I LOVE YOU ❤️ to Your Children
    When I recall my childhood, the words “I love you” were simply never used. Never said. Never heard. Why? Maybe because it was a different time, different generation, different culture, or maybe it was just too hard for my family to say these simple words out loud to each other let alone to us kids. I certainly felt love and care from my parents so don't get me wrong, but I guess it was an "unstated" type of love that was status quo during that generation. lol. The older I got and understood more about myself, people, the world and overall life I definitely realized that this lack of verbal ....
