Jesus and Jiu-Jitsu

L to R: Brian Marvin, Carlo Serrano, John Renken

Last year I learned a lot about myself and about life in general. To the surprise of most, those lessons were not learned at church or in school. I learned them while practicing Brazilian Jiu Jitsu! The biggest lesson I learned is that when it comes to difficult situations, posture is everything.

While I am using brute force, the other guy is patiently waiting and conserving energy until I either get tired or lose my base (posture). Posture matters.

The Bible talks about good posture often. «Read the rest of this article»
