BJJ in the dark is hard, BJJ in the light is easy

I am going to be reprinting some old classic entries from my previous blog called The Angry Grappler. It will chronicle the evolution in my understanding of martial arts.

Jiu Jits is like being lost in the woods at night. Its really hard if you have no flashlight and have to feel your way. Might take you a long time to get out and eventually you may get good at navigating in the dark. And if this was BJJ even though you don't see eventually you will get your black belt because you got good at whatever you are doing.

Jiu Jits is easy if you turn the lights on. Instead of trying to navigate aimlessly, your first goal is to get a flashlight somehow. May make you make less ground than others at the beginning but once you find your light, man your journey will be so much easier and faster than others. And even in the end you will be one of the few who has a light. One of the ones who is sought after by other black belts.

This is my goal. Think I found a flashlight with no batteries :(
