Great class today with my coach, Professor Jean Jacques Machado. Grappled with him for 12 minutes and in that space of time I totally understood why I am still a student under him. Talk about being totally dominated. Man, I felt like a white belt again. You know the exciting part about it is though after 25 years under the Macgado’s? It made me realise how much more I can learn on this journey of discovery in this wonderful Martial Art. How good is that? You know, the best way to keep your ego in check is to only train with the very best. If ever I start getting a little cocky and feeling like I am getting pretty good at BJJ, all I need do is wrestle with one of the Machado Brothers and I am immediately reminded of the fact that I am indeed still a student. I love that because it again excites me as to how much more there is to learn in this intricate art.
