Jiujitsu isn’t an infinite list of checkboxes to be checked off and moved on from. It’s mastery comes from the slow distillation of the ever evolving expressions of it’s simplest principles.

An evolved player of BJJ visits each leaf of the tree of techniques, sees the tiny connecting branches of each and how each has base branches leading to the trunk, and revisits the roots frequently that hold up the tree.

A truly holistic player of BJJ sees not only how the entire tree can stand on it’s own but also how it belongs in a forest of life wisdom beyond it’s branches and root system.
