Filled with Yoga sequences, physiology, and psycho-spiritual insights, "Yoga & the Martial Way" immediately fosters positive transformation in the art of Jiu-Jitsu for anyone who embraces it. Perfect for veteran martial artists and newcomers alike, this book and additional online courses, are a unique experience in the field of martial arts as a path to awakening. Training for life; the path of the ultimate warrior, in all traditional Jiu-Jitsu arts teachings, is not just the path of the fighter. It is a path of service, love and protection for our community. It demands us to access the deeper qualities of the warrior: focus, energy, perseverance and dedication to a cause bigger than ourselves. This heart, this spirit, is the essence of the internal power of the practitioner. It is foundational for reaching peak performance, recovering from an injury or building resilience to deal with the inherent challenges of life. This is built step-by-step during a lifetime of training as we integrate our art into every dimension of our life and well-being. Be assured Body-Mindfulness needs to be a sincere task. To expand your Jiu-Jitsu repertoire is to become elastically playful. It involves bringing a new creative attitude, not only to your "rolling," but also to simple everyday activities. It is never too late to begin your "life training."In conclusion, giving attention to your body is practically important and, combined with Mindfulness, these will be the best tools to manage your Jiu-Jitsu training. The fruits of bringing Body-Mindfulness into a martial arts practice and your life are a new 'aliveness', an enthusiastic resilient energy and a generous self-care attitude. Tools we all need for a long and healthy life. No other system is better than Yoga to become entwined in this marriage between martial art, specifically BJJ and the beautiful, sexy, alluring and intoxicating practice of Yoga. It's a marriage made in heaven.If your goal is to become a complete martial athlete, especially in BJJ, then leaving the ancient practice of Yoga out of your training regimen is non-negotiable, there is no room to debate it. It's a must if you must step up your game. There is no other exercise or system out there that addresses and develops as many mental and physical attributes as Yoga does.
