assorted interesting stuff

Another fantastic belt demonstration from RDA

Ah, nothing like a Sunday morning fix by watching yet another fantastic purple belt demonstration by one of Roy Dean's students. These guys are all so fluent!! THAT's what I want to be like. Yeah!

Colds, flus and time off

It's only a couple of weeks since I had a cold and needed to take some time off from training.

For some thoughts on the same matter by someone who is as fanatic about cycling as I am about BJJ, read this insight on Grit & Glimmer.

I know I don't eat enough greens and fresh stuff. I'm a lazy cook and my inner bastard has a habit of taking over when I come home tired. It's one of the areas I really need to work on. There are some good ideas in that blog post and I'm going to try some of them out.

I can't very well expect my body to perform well if I'm not feeding it well, can I??
