I was planning on writing a followup to last week's post about cryptocurrencies, but I just didn't have the time to write a proper article and not just half-ass it. With my tournament this weekend, I've been trying to get as much rest as possible between training sessions, incorporate extra stretching and perform physical therapy on my injuries/limitations. I apologize for the delay in normally scheduled programming and hope to get back on track next week.
In the mean time, if anyone doesn't know/hasn't looked into BJJ (Brazilian Jiu Jitsu), I highly recommend it. It is a martial art that emphasizes technique over brute force and is a great way to get in shape and build confidence. There are no strikes (punches, kicks etc) in BJJ - the ultimate goal is the submission (chokes and joint locks) of your opponent. It is akin to wrestling and judo with take-downs, throws and positioning. While, like those two, a match starts on the feet, it quickly goes to the ground. Below is a video to give you a taste of what some of the top competitors in the world can do. It is truly a human chess match.
