Welcome to Grapplers Graveyard, a blog written by me, Bowtied Grappler.
If you are here already I can make some positive assumptions about the type of person you are. This blog is for the hustlers, the people who want to be in the best shape possible and strive to live a better life.
Bury your Ego
The Graveyard, as I will refer to it, are the Mats. This is where our egos get laid to rest as the reapers (black belts) watch over the new souls. The reapers are most dominant force in the graveyard, as new souls we must stay vigilant to how the reapers guide us. Respect in the graveyard is an unspoken rule that we all adhere to. 🥋🪦
Souls are bonded in the Graveyard through this spiritual endeavor. Blood, sweat, and tears are the currencies of choice.
We all have, and continue too, put our bodies on the line in order to see progress within our game. Deep down, each one of us want to be able to bury our opponents. There is an obligation that we uphold to our gym and coaches to continue to bury our egos, be good teammates, and challenge ourselves to accomplish the personal quests we each venture out on.
Never underestimate an opponent.
Everyone you go against can be a threat.
Respect will be earned or taken.
We look forward to growing with each one of you here at the Grapplers Graveyard.
Jiu Jitsu and other forms of martial arts have changed the lives of millions.
Our goal here at the Grappplers Graveyard is to build a world-class community of practitioners around the world and make it easier to connect with other people who share the same passion. We write about all things that the sport has to offer, from moves, and belt progression, to gear recommendations, you name it we talk about it.
We have a lofty vision of how this website and business will morph over time and it will not be accomplished without the support of those that buy into our mission.
If you are on the fence about doing martial arts, we will always tell you to try it out! You never know what could be on the other side of this and what martial arts has in store for your life.
