Gracie Jiu-Jitsu: Flow with the go...
New philosophy, per Master Sauer and Professor Luis "Limao" Heredia:
"Prevent" and not "Stop"
"Prevent" and not "Resist"
"Humility" and not "Ego"
Another key to success: Control the hips AND the head.
Never two of your limbs on only one of your partner's; however, always one of your limbs controlling two of your partner's. Maximum efficiency, minimum effort.
See, anticipate, premeditate. Flow with the go. If you get caught in a submission, tap and smile. Who hasn't been there before? Ask your partner how he/she set you up. Learn from it. Grow.
Attend class consistently. Some of the worst days can turn into your best, both on-and-off the mat.
Now, let's train. See you on the mat -- tomorrow night!
