Quote of the week: “Jiu-Jitsu is a filter of life itself. Jiu-Jitsu does not weed out people who are weak or lack coordination, or natural talent. Jiu-jitsu weeds out those who lack core principles of success. In jiu-jitsu, those that practice become stronger. Paul Kindzia in the book Master Jiu-Jitsu Master Life
