Happy 4th of July, 2012, the celebration of the United States Independence.

Before class, Kevin, a fellow blue belt, three striped, confided in me, ” I don’t know anything. I can’t recall what I have learned.”  Do you remember driving from your home to the dojo, school, or gym? How many right turns did you take? Did you use the turning signal? The truth is that you don’t remember because the information is in your subconscious mind. I trust the info is in my subconscious memory, memory you know without actively thinking.

Am I on the right path? Freak!!!! My arm, shoulder, was almost broken in the grappling techniques class. I was super pissed off the other day. This is good because I am working out my anger.  I’m trying my best not to make this personal.  I will let this go out of my respect for the professors. I control my emotions and no one else.  Maybe this was a good event to happen. I think learning to control your emotions could be a part of jiu jitsu.  I will continue until purple belt. I owe it to this blog.

Super cool!  I got an invitational YouTube email to practice Gracie jiu Jitsu in Tokyo, Japan. Probably spam. I didn’t respond yet. The training starts in August which is too short a time for me to get everything together and it is for a month. If it were true, I would want to do it next summer so that I could train, train, and train at home. I’m not going to Japan to make an ass of myself, my school, and my country. Wife already said no and said something about a divorce. I think I could change her mind if I had more time. My kids were super excited when I mentioned the invitation. I would be a great candidate to study in Japan. I love their culture. Atari, Godzilla, Gamera, Speed Racer, Shogun,Sushi, Judo, jiu Jitsu, sumo wrestling, Judo champion Kimura, Buddhism, baseball fanatics, The iron chief, samurai, Kumon, Honda, Toyota, Toshiba, Sony. Seppuku.  I was learning to read and write Japanese. It is not as difficult as you might think. It is a phonetic language unlike Chinese. I gave up learning Japanese since learning Japanese didn’t make sense. I wish I had Japanese friends. Well, it’s was a fun dream.
