It provides facts about how challenging and effective Helio Gracie’s method of Jiujitsu. I guess it’s his version of participating in a Gracie Challenge in those days.

Reasons Why? Part 2 – If I were the Devil

What has happened to our world, our society, living? Are we, humans, doomed from the very beginning? The holy book holds the historical factor of us constantly failing to do what we suppose to do on this earth. We disobey our heavenly father and continue to sin even though his only son sacrificed himself to save us. Yet, people continue to believe we are saved by his grace and are okay with sinning until judgment day comes. I’ll just leave it as that…

To Hell and Back

Well, it has been about two months since I last wrote on this blog. I was going through my own hiatus and fighting my demons. I’m not totally recovered but I’m trying to think positive and staying calm. Patience is a virtue and focusing on the present helps to relieve the anxiety and depression. Although those bad memories keep popping into my head from time-to-time; there will always be there and I can’t do anything about it besides to control those thoughts/memories. It’s hard battling my own mind, its like two people living in one body. I have to say if it wasn’t for my family, I would be gone from this earth. Either off-grid or to dust, but I’m glad I choose to raise my fists, tuck in my chin and fight back. Yes, I’m back. Let’s do this!
