Not too much of an update...Just still feeling a little run down but definitely better...Have been out for a week and tried to get some rest even though some life things had me moving around a bit. I taught class today and really felt good to be back on the mats...I worked on basic guard breaks and worked a pass and a submission from there...I tried to get across the tiny tiny details that are the difference between success and failure...Some got through and some didn't but it is always rewarding...I really enjoy teaching Jiu-Jitsu...
Wanted to drop a note to say that I was honored recently to speak on the Fightworks Podcast...Caleb is a great guy and the Podcast is a frequent visiting place of a who's who of Brazilian Jiu-jitsu...He does a really great job with it, and I have been a fan of it for quite some time...There is a LOT of great information on the podcast and should be checked ou t by anyone interested in bettering their game as well as just learning about the gentle art...

Thought For the Day:
William Ernest Henley
Out of the night that covers me,
Black as the Pit from pole to pole,
I thank whatever gods may be
For my unconquerable soul.
In the fell clutch of circumstance
I have not winced nor cried aloud.
Under the bludgeonings of chance
My head is bloody, but unbowed.
Beyond this place of wrath and tears
Looms but the horror of the shade,
And yet the menace of the years
Finds, and shall find me, unafraid.
It matters not how strait the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll,
I am the master of my fate;
I am the captain of my soul.
