Aliveness 101: Very Interesting Philosophies on BJJ

Posted on Updated on

I found a very interesting blog yesterday called Aliveness 101. The author Matt Thorton provides a very interesting and thorough overview of coaching philosophy as well as the experience and skills required of each belt level.

Just from reading two posts I have gained some valuable insight on where I should focus some attention in my training….

***There is also an interesting picture of Thorton and Jeff Munson from 2000 on the blog. Munson is nowhere near the size he is now, which shows that nothing occurs overnight.***

Check out my new books, The Lazy Man’s Guide to Grappling and Grappling for Newbies on Amazon.com!

    Some articles by Matt Thornton were what first got me thinking about BJJ. Until I read his articles on Aliveness, I thought that all Martial Arts styles were pretty much the same.

    Good find.

    Thanks…

    That is very interesting. You never know what type of influence you will have on a person.

    I think he is pretty much able to put into words what a lot of us who practice BJJ feel about it.
