One of my favorite Jiu-Jitsu Videos was Joe Rogan receiving his 10th Planet No Gi Black Belt (on my Birthday, too)
I am not a Joe Rogan hater, in fact, I’m a fan.
This video made me even more of a fan.
I want to key in on one of the things he said.
My Taekwondo teacher (unapologetically mentions his TKD lineage, more of us should do that) told me Martial Arts is a vehicle for developing human potential.
There are some that say that Martial Arts is a sport.
You can be a perfect gentleman in the dojo
and a douchebag in the street.
But everything affects everything
and compartmentalization only works for so long.
Your life comes into the dojo
and your dojo comes into your life…
which leads me to ask these questions:
What is your strategy in the dojo?
What is your game?
And is that game a useful strategy for your life?
If your dojo strategy isn’t a good life strategy,
consider altering it
because a new strategy may work better in the dojo, too.
I believe Movement Martial Arts principles
are not only useful in the dojo
but useful in life
and I look forward to the day when they permeate
every aspect of my game
and every aspect of my life.
