Dave Camarillo came to Higher Jiu Jitsu for his second seminar instalment. These are the reflections of head coach John Smallios.
Einstein said the only source of knowledge is experience.
This is a picture of triumph.
It is also a picture of pain.
This moment served as a pivotal course of action. Every moment can.
You can only control yourself. How do you respond?
An expert tells you what to do while a coach guides you through the process. At Higher Jiu Jitsu you won't be told what to do as much as asked how it feels? The most effective knowledge lies within yourself. It is our aim to faciliate the jiu jitsu, and help you uncover that for yourself.
Is jiu jitsu on your mind all the time? Do your dreams all include jiu jitsu?
Face it. You're in love. So am I.
And it only gets higher. Because in jiu jitsu, there is no perfection, only endless refinement.
This is life, and always will be.
When you seek to move with quality, you may do less, but you’ll do it better.
That’s as good a goal as any.
Injuries suck. I hate them. And so do you.
Misdirected enthusiasm, coupled with ignorance is a dangerous combination. The trap of thinking you are invincible is an easy one to fall into.
We can do better. We can be smarter.
