Essense of the Martial Arts

07 Mar

Just finished reading about one man’s incredible journey training in some of the poorest areas of the world but learning so much about himself and his martial art.

Christian Gruagart is a Brazilian Jiu-jitsu brown belt and coach. He is currently traveling around the world training and teaching, but he is not teaching where we might think. This post is from a training experience he had in Moldova with students who don’t even have heat in their training hall.

This is an incredible post, which moves you and displays the essence of what it means to be a martial artist. To give of yourself in all things, perform to the best of your abilities in all ways, and always learn from your experiences.

Thank you Christian for sharing with the rest of us and teaching us what it means to be a dedicated martial artist. Your example of humility is inspiring!
