Gracie Barra

Post by The Whole F'n Show » Mon Jun 20, 2011 12:56 am

Not much needs to be said about the art of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and the Gracie familiy. Obviously their version of Jiu Jitsu has proven to be one of the most effective methods of fighting on the ground. It has also maintained it's relevancy into modern times while many martial arts have not maintained the importance or level they once did. Even still BJJ is at the heart and soul of MMA competition. Many people think of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu as violent and brutal, and while of course it can be, the truth is it is very technical. Brazilian Jiu Jitsu can also enable a smaller person to defeat a larger person.

I have a blue belt in GB.

Kye ma!
The river of continuity is marked by impermanence.
Ceaseless flowing of appearance.
Beautiful and repulsive.
The dance of life and death is a display of the vast expanse.
With gratitude the watcher and the watched pass through the barrier of duality.

Is this some kind of commercial promotion?

No, I am Spartacus.

And this thread reeks of Spamicus.
དམ་པའི་དོན་ནི་ཤེས་རབ་ཆེ་བ་དང་།
རྟོག་གེའི་ཡུལ་མིན་བླ་མའི་བྱིན་རླབས་དང་།
སྐལ་ལྡན་ལས་འཕྲོ་ཅན་གྱིས་རྟོགས་པ་སྟེ།
དེ་ནི་ཤེས་རབ་ལ་ནི་ལོ་རྟོག་སེལ།།


"Absolute Truth is not an object of analytical discourse or great discriminating wisdom,
It is realized through the blessing grace of the Guru and fortunate Karmic potential.
Like this, mistaken ideas of discriminating wisdom are clarified."

I normally don't wear a belt so I can get this "look" happening:
