My friend Ritchie Yip really nails it in this video.
Ultimately it’s not about winning tournaments, triangle choking a mugger in an alley, or being king of the dojo. It’s about developing the strength, the fortitude and – dare I say it – character that will serve you for the rest of your whole life in any field of endeavour.
By the way, Ritchie runs two schools. They are the Infighting MMA academies in Vancouver and Burnaby, BC. I personally know many of the guys and girls who train in the BJJ program there, and can’t say enough good things about them and the school. Check it out at www.infighting.ca.
