Sometimes I wonder why I don’t compete. I think of how much fun it would be to really give something my all and really, really try to win. I crave that. But then I remember my personality. I remember that I won’t be able to do anything else in life while waiting for the competition. I remember that I have a single track mind.
I would like to try it though. I would like to lose, in order to reduce the pressure for the next time. Then I could have some fun.
Brown belts are awesome to watch in competition. They are almost comparable to college football, where they aren’t as polished as pro and don’t come with the expectation of perfection, like you may have with watching a black belt. They are just very good BJJ players. That’s why it’s enjoyable to watch videos of brown belts competing when I get the chance.
I saw a video of Guillaume Huni this afternoon competing around Europe. If you want to see the master of the one leg takedown, check this guy out. Smooth. Funny, because he seems to be around my height and all I can do is come up with excuses for why I can’t get the one leg. I say I’m too tall. Perhaps I should work on that.
Take a look at this guy and tell me you don’t want to take your game up a notch.
