“Never work against Mother Nature. You only succeed when you work with her.”
All around us there is a natural way to things. You can tap into that. My Professor talks about the flow, some call it the current–all those descriptions we use to articulate a certain freedom. Freedom of movement. In Jiu Jitsu I think it means a freedom of mind. It’s about letting go, freeing control and realising that momentum can carry you further than all your panicky scrambling. When you start to feel that, and when you stop trying so hard, you can let your unconscious mind do what it needs to. There you can have greater outcomes than you do in the useless battle of wills, or fight over control.
You can’t change human nature any more than you can change the essense of water. So, instead of throwing muscle into it, it’s more efficient to explore out how to channel that power instead. To go with the flow.
Stay mighty on the mats,
