Ignorance Begets Confidence.

"Ignorance more frequently begets confidence than does knowledge: it is those who know little, and not those who know much, who so positively assert that this or that problem will never be solved by science." - Charles Darwn

I think what most people don't appreciate about BJJ but the main reason people love it so much is that, it is in the end based in science. Presently anyhow. Other martial arts may have to rely on vague notions, mysticism, chi, or some quasi-religious explanation. BJJ is rooted in physics.

When you start it seems so simple. You don't understand why you are not getting it. Then as you get better, you realize how complex it really is. The ones who know the least have the most opinions about it. It's probably why black belts hardly ever write blogs and so many lower belts do. I started mine as a white belt...
