Wow. I just read a great post by Cane Prevost. If you've been reading my blog for any length of time, you will recognize the name because I really enjoy his pedagogy of jiu jitsu. He's a blackbelt in the SBGi school under Matt Thornton, and his blog The Gentle Art captures some interesting insights in the teaching and learning of jiu jitsu.
Anyway, for those of us who aren't full-time jiu jitsu athletes, (us Part Time Grapplers like Liam) living in an all-expenses-paid jiu jitsu house like I've heard the Team Lloyd Irvin people have, Prevost's article on how to be a great "ordinary mortal" is pretty slick. So if you're not one of the Miyao brothers... Mackenzie Dern... or Buchecha... if you just enjoy jiu jitsu as a part of your life... give it a read here.
