Holy cross thread pollination, Batman! Those crazy bjjers just post about BJJ anywhere they please, don't they?

That's not very spiritual, Keith. I'm going to confess and prey er pray to my swami about you . . .

On that note about Roy Dean's Academy - it also happens to be in Bend, Oregon, which is officially one of the niftiest places on the planet. You can have all sorts of spiritual experiences with nature in that region of the United States (see, on topic!)

Darn it, I'm getting sucked in again - Ohhhmmmmmm . . .
Ha-ha-ha. Good sense of humor .

Re: Make spiritual side part of my training

I think the spiritual side is always there. It has its levels, that range from the beginner who wants to save everyone, to the long timer who wants to accept everyone.

In gassho,

Re: Make spiritual side part of my training

I'm not so sure how related BJJ is to Gracie Jujutsu, but I did see a video about 10 years ago of Rickson Gracie called, "The Choke."

It was extremely spiritual and would offer a wonderful bridge to the spiritual side of Jujutsu.
