“I never defeated my opponents, they defeated themselves ”
– Grand Master Helio Gracie
I often feel like the latter in this statement… but it’s all about learning! And keeping it playful in the process, of course 🙂
Hey!! we all have felt like you:)
It seems that the more I roll the more I understand this. In this physical chess game we call Jiu Jitsu there are so many variations to movements. Only when you make the wrong move do you defeat yourself, and when your the guy on the offensive rolling with someone more advanced it turns into a chess game of attack and defense until he makes a wrong move and boom he defeats himself.
Well said my friend!
