    FINDING FLEXIBILITY by Cheryl Stevens

With the amount of sitting we do in our cars, sitting in front of the TV and the lack of exercise ' this all contributes to shortened stiffer muscles. Tight hamstrings pull the pelvis out of alignment and create pressure on the lower back. Tight muscles reduce the range of motion in the body and make the body feel stressed and heavy. Tension in the muscles also effects circulation of blood to the whole body. Flexibility is one of the first things to go as our bodies enter adulthood and we continue to age.

  13. Peaceful Warriors
    Peaceful Warriors

    Everything in Jiu-Jitsu is based on defence, rather than attack. In traditional fighting systems, the only way to resolve a conflict is by punching and kicking harder than your opponent, leaving him battered, bruised and generally rather miserable. In Jiu-Jitsu you take your opponent's aggression, turn it around on him and get him into a 'submission hold', where he then has the option of stopping the fight and 'tapping' to indicate submission. The situation is resolved, no harm has been inflicted, and all involved understand with clarity that the conflict is over. This is in alignment with Jiu-Jitsu's fundamental principle, which is to do no harm.
