Jiu Jitsu is often translated into the Japanese root words "Gentle" and "Art".
Recently, I stumbled across some writings by Max Lucado, author and preacher. I was quite intrigued by his statement that the Greek word translated as gentleness describes a temperament that's seasoned and mature.
I desire that the practice of Gracie Jiu Jitsu would provide the physical and mental discipline to spur me in this direction.
- Questions to consider -
Will I engage in Gracie Jiu Jitsu in such a way as to facilitate this goal?
How would those that come in contact with me benefit from this?
