Unlike the world, here at Body Awake Jiu-Jitsu we practice cooperation rather than competition. We fight for Emergency situations and self defense only. Unlike the world we do not and will not use martial arts for ambitious reasons such as fame, fortune or feelings of personal glory. Here At Body Awake Jiu-Jitsu we choose to rise above the animals, and to not behave like them. They are asleep. Unaware of themselves. Animals claim "this is mine" by urinating on their territory. Today competition in the world seems to be nothing more than just that. A pissing contest. Boundaries, Passports, countries, flags, teams. All are ways of marking territories and claiming I am better than you. I am different. Not like you. Separate. In fact even though we are in some ways very different we all have a common ground.
We feel the cold the same, the heat the same. We all cry when we are sad, and laugh when we are happy, We all bleed the same and we will all someday die. In this way we are one. Death, destruction, inequality, crime, feelings of inferiority are all side effects of competition. Here at Body Awake Jiu-Jitsu we cherish peace and quiet over victory or defeat. We do not seek to compete against anyone, rather we continue to improve only ourselves. To be better husbands, friends, brothers sisters, mothers, fathers, sons, and daughters. We have nothing to prove. We are here. That is enough.
If you enjoyed this I am glad for you. If not sorry I tried to wake you up. Go back to sleep.
