Work Hard, Play Hard is more than a motto, it's a lifestyle, for better and for worse. There are things that have helped me moderate this. Being married and having a child first and foremost, but jiu jitsu follows close behind and the website that is tribesports is closing in fast.
It's an interesting sort of Facebook meets physical challenge.
It motivates me which is pretty important these days. Although like Facebook, it can pretty addictive in a not so healthy way. Yesterday I was trying to get my ranking to under 900, employing a number of strategies that might not lead to one's healthiest bests. It was all sorts of jumping jacks yesterday. OK better than jello shots but not by much.
I did my best to throw down the hopscotch ethic at the office the other day.
What most people don't know is that the origins of hopscotch date back to ancient Rome. The Legionnaires would set up courses that would be 100 feet long or more to pass the time and test one's skills
I've always been a big fan of jump ropes. And have had one in the car for the last few years. The other day on lark I decided to see if there were any formal jump rope competitions or organizations and indeed there are, and they are amazing to say the least.
Jiujitsu has always been a wonderful way for me to meet locals all over the globe. From Montreal to Miami, to Mammoth Lakes and beyond, I've found a common intrest in the grappling arts.
Small world as it is, I ran across someone I rolled with way back when at the RCJ Machado Academy back in LA, Los Angeles that is.
Unlike me, he was consistent with his BJJ practice and is now a black belt with his own studio. Lucky for me it just 20 minutes down the road. Skye has continued her studies as well.
I set up the silks at the set dec warehouse and try to have an aerial jam once a week.
I've been pushing juggling as well as hoops and of course aerial silks.
I do what I can to promote the circus arts.
