You won't hurt yourself by engaging in this sword-fighting sport - as long as you know how to be en garde.
How my attempts to remove excess earwax on my own helped me to realize how unique the lifestyle of the BJJ athlete is.

Since the beginning of this year, I’ve been making a conscious effort to be less of a negative Nancy about things. I think I'm finally getting the hang of it.
Competition forces you to take a look at your game and actually think about what caused your bad position or loss.
I thought it would be fun to create a mock-up based on my favorite features of the gis in my collection.
