Most intellegent take on competition I’ve seen…

Lance Mountain, a grandmaster of grandmasters, did an interview with Mike Vallely in 2005 I was going to post here before Vallely removed it from his youtube account. =(

Now Lance and MikeV are both skaters, but Lance’s thoughts translate just as well to Jiu-Jitsu:

The basic idea is that Skateboarding/BJJ is an art, with competition/sport being one avenue of exploration within the art.

Lance added that what a skater is (read: BJJ guy/gal) , is guy or gal who isn’t going to stop skating. =)
