Re: Aikido and Jujitsu training

Thank you for your input. And I do understand your thoughts of hubris. I had initially thought of retracting the last phrase, however that is most literally what I dislike about competition. When I lose I generally feel it is due to my competitor having more skill than I have, and more of a sense what I need to better myself at more accutely. However, as with the general attitude of Brazilian Jujitsu Competition(unlike Judo the are no ideals mentioned when facing a more talented opponent) I have seen losses taken rather hardly, and wins as you stated taken with "chest beating". Unfortunately there seemed no more of a basic way to state what I am most opposed to most about competition in Brazilian Jujitsu. I aplogize.
