Stop taking yourself so seriously. Jiu Jitsu is about having fun; a lifetime of fun. Goof around. Play the fool. Stop acting like some mean-mugging ghetto thug who only wants to prove himself. Lose the chip from your shoulder. Enjoy your students. Enjoy your instructors. Enjoy being live. Goof off. Play hard. Don’t be afraid of being embarrassed. We’re all clowns, so start wearing our big red noses proudly. We live once; live it crazy.
PS: I have no idea who those two people in that picture are.
