The Secret Weapon for Martial Artists

THE SECRET WEAPON FOR MARTIAL ARTISTS

I am an early student of the Gracie Family in their special family martial art GRACIE BRAZILIAN JIU JITSU. Its a great practice. Royce was my main teacher followed by and Rolker. i did well… i progressed fast. i began to teach early in my career and i was successful at competition. i won my division twice in the Gracie Jiu Jitsu National Tournament that Royce used to run each year…. Royce asked me once how i was training for my next tournament. “Bull Riding Tapes” yep! it was true. i actually watched tapes of bullriders trying to ride Bodacious in the rodeo. i had a natural affinity for it since my ancestors had their own rodeo in illnois for quite sometime back in the day. however, i had a better secret than that … i didnt talk about it too much—-it was the reason i progressed quickly in Gracie Jiu Jitsu, and the reason i did well in competition. more recently, the one of the reasons i was able to come back from alot of devastation…

ill tell part of the story…prior to Gracie JIu jitsu, i did other martial arts. My first teach, Master Byunghoon Parks, taught us breathing practices… they went hand in hand with breaking riverbed rocks… it was awesome. Many years later, that story helped me get an internship at the UMASS STRESS REDUCTION CLINIC…. yes…. my Meditation and Yoga experience is the secret that i am revealing here…. it was my foundation in Martial Arts…. and my foundation now…. along with the way i eat… ill tell you more about that later…

listen… its time to get on the mat and learn authentic gracie jiu jitsu in either our adult classes or our kids classes in west hartford… call me at 860 233 3000 to set up a time to come in for a lesson…. but also… think about this: Spring is coming… and everyone is thinking about the beach and how to fit back into those bathing suits after a long winter… i am suggesting you take a look at this yoga program for burning fat by my friend Zoe….see the link below… listen… some of you on my list are moms wanting the best for their child —I DESIGNED SUPERKIDS ACADEMY TO HELP YOUR KIDS BE THE BEST THEY CAN BE AND ITS TIME TO SIGN UP… BUT many of you on my list here are tuff guys interested in Gracie Jiu Jitsu, MMA, and self defense…. I WANT YOU TO KNOW meditation and yoga is for tuff guys too…. now this program Zoe made reflects the amazing power of some dainty appearing women…. dont be confused…. they are super strong and tuff in theIr own way — and the truth is, their own way may be much tougher and stronger that ours…. on a side note… i once taught a yoga class before Jiu jItsu. “Eric The PurpLe Belt” (funny how people get these nicknames) said at the end that it took all the fight out of him… i recollect that his jiu jitsu was much better that night because it is truly all about leverage and nothing to do with strength… YOGA REALLY HELPS…. Zoes program is a great way to develop the skills and reap the benefits of a solid yoga practice right at home a few minutes a day…. youll lose weight and feel your best… maybe you will have to get a new bathing suit… for the best reason possible¬† — your old one was too baggy!

anyways…. look at and try this yoga thing… it is what i will be doing tomorrow morning… yep! right along with the dainty women…. if you ever wonder how I came back after knee replacement, pec torn off the attachment, shoulder surgery, and torn hip socket — and if you wonder about how to achieve your best weight and best performance???¬† its meditation and yoga….
