Did you know the word “spirit” is derived from the Latin term “spiritus”, which means breath? Other possible meanings of this term are courage, vigor, and soul. I could not think of a more fitting term to use when I began this project.
My name is Brian and this is my project. It’s sole purpose is to become my medium of expression of my inner self, my inner “breath”. At the time of writing this I am a blue belt in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and I have only been training for about two and a half years. I say “only” because in the perspective of the art I am still a baby. Despite my limited experience I have become very keen to a certain aspect of the art that I believe many of us feel. It is something we are aware of, something we share, and something we cherish and yet cannot describe. It is our breath, our spirit.
This blog is a dedication to that spirit. Here you will find writings, photos, and videos that uphold and promote this inner strength. I encourage you to take part in this project. Take a moment to explore, take a breath, relax, and reflect. If you would like to contribute please visit the “Community” section. I would love to hear from you.
