Quote of the week: “If a thing is worth doing, it is worth doing badly” Gilbert K. Chesterton- In this quote Gary shares an example about his poor golfing skills. If you want to be good at BJJ you need to accept the fact that you will be doing it badly for a while and improvement will come with practice.
