Re: BJJ and Connection

A couple of years ago I was training at an mma gym. I was warming up on the sideline with some shiko, and the instructor asked me if i was doing "fire breathing" from yoga. I said no, and mentioned Aunkai.

Later when we talked, he asked about Aunkai and I mentioned some stuff about age te-- looking for the connection, feeling the other person's force enter you etc. And the instructor mentioned that what I was saying was almost exactly what he had heard at a seminar with one of Rickson's black belts just a few weeks previously.

I spend most of my time doing standup striking but I wouldn't mind doing more grappling, either standup or ground. Just have to find the time.
