I hate to do the old “start a speech by quoting Webster’s Dictionary”, but according to dictionary.com, a sport is:
an athletic activity requiring skill or physical prowess and often of a competitive nature, as racing, baseball, tennis, golf, bowling, wrestling, boxing, hunting, fishing, etc.
Some may be angry for even suggesting that Brazilian jiu-jitsu is not first and foremost a martial art! But I wanted to get the sentiment of its practitioners. What is it to you?
I guess this comes down to why it is that we do BJJ. I’m very curious to hear your answers. Please leave a comment below or call us up on our toll free line where we can record your thoughts and put them in an episode of the show: 1-877-247-4662!
