In the movie, The Grey, Liam Neeson’s character is reminded of this poem on the wall of his father’s study…

Once more into the fray,

Into the last good fight I’ll ever know.

Live and die on this day.

Live and die on this day.

Without going into the specifics of the poem’s true meaning, I feel a big takeaway message is to simply engage life, progress forward, and make what you’re doing the best you can. Because today can be your last day. So make it your best day possible.

As it relates to Jiu-Jitsu or grappling, try to stay away from always keeping the distance from your opponent. Move towards your opponent and immediately “lock horns” with them. Don’t be afraid to get into the thick of things. Because this is where your true Jiu-Jitsu will come out.

Put yourself inside the action, and “break the bubble” of your opponent. Make them respect your actions, and show them respect by being active. Forget about being bested or being submitted. In the end, you’ll learn from the experience regardless of its ending.

Be a part of the roll.

Learn. Drill. Roll. TRANSFORM!
