Rambling analysis of my addiction to Brazilian jiu jitsu, with occasional political rants and musings on culture, sociology, food, love..
What is it that is so addictive about the Brazilian Ju Jitsu?I hear David Mamet loves it also.Alan Lipman-Head of State
It's physical chess-- it's total body exercise-- it's a neverending physical *and* intellectual challenge. And unlike many other martial arts, you don't "pull punches"- you train hard and try hard but know that when you get to the "goal" your partner taps out, so you don't worry about really hurting them. You can try as hard as you can and still be safe-- if that makes sense?Plus, me personally? I dig being a rarity. I like being a woman in a male-dominated activity because I like pushing my boundaries, challenging myself, and being unique (or unique-ish, seeing as how I'm not the "only" woman at my school or the activity.)
