Off topic: Favorite street dance vid

October 7, 2011

“You can’t just do it two hours a day, and okay, I’ll do it when I go to the jam.  We used to eat, piss, sh*&, drink, think b-boying.” ~Mr. Freeze of the Rock Steady Crew on practice.

From the documentary ‘The Freshest Kids,’ my favorite street dance clip.  History, foundation, fundamentals, and technique wrapped in style on concrete no less!:


Video: Neighbor engages teens with car horn and verbal jiu-jitsu

September 30, 2011

Caught on video by grandson visiting from Sweden, my neighbor and wine drinking buddy Helen Heestand, 76 years young, successfully uses car horn/verbal jiu-jitsu tactics to retreat teenagers taking a joy-ride in, unbeknownst to them, the wrong golf cart to mess with you son of guns!


House Cleaning: Revisions and omissions

July 12, 2011

I’m going through all past posts within the next few months.  Mostly likely I will find things that no longer gel with my current thoughts, resulting in either deletion or revision.

So…if you have any favorite posts…or just want to scribble ‘muggle thinking’ followed by arrow for fridge or bulletin board, slap ‘print’ while public embarrassment opportunity abounds.

As for the things that stay, I’m going to attempt organizing by theme, and related posts per easier navigation.

Yoga and joint mobility exploration

April 6, 2010

I’ve been taking some time off from BJJ training lately to explore joint mobility, yoga, and other kinesthetic awareness resources. 

Just to let everyone know, I’ll probably continue to do so throughout spring, and possibly into summer.

I’ve neglected prioritizing the wellness of my body for some time now.  This was partially out of ignorance, and partially out of laziness. =)

Anyway, I’ll still be blogging,  grappling intermittently, and be available for privates depending on one’s needs…
