I know a tiny tad about Brazilian Jiu-jitsu. Really just a teensy bit. This is because my husband is a brown belt in this form of martial arts. He's obsessed, really. You would think I'd know more! But it's one of those things that unless you are actually involved in it personally—practice it—it's hard to be truly interested in it. I try to show an interest in it out of respect...

This is a short video of one of the most important figures in BJJ, Rickson Gracie, in which he discusses "flow." Take from it what you will. :)

Rickson Gracie video

Here is the quote that accompanies the video, just to give you an idea of who Rickson Gracie is:

"Rickson Gracie is the son of the late Helio Gracie. Helio and his brother invented the art of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. The Gracie family has a huge family full of incredibly talented martial artists. Members of the Gracie family have dominated the sports of Jiu Jitsu and Mixed Martial Arts for almost 80 years. They also founded the UFC and Ricksons younger brother Royce won 3 of the first 4 UFCs. "

I do like the phrase, so I decided to use it for my daily HGT phrase today. (And, if you're like me, you enjoy listening to Brazilian accents, so check out the video above.)
