Totally true! Except for the “You quit doing stupid shit” part, which I’d change to “You do stupid shit a little less often.” ^_^ I am at the “Yikes! He’s gonna armbar me!” stage, though. ^_^
It reminds me a lot of the video that Roy Dean made about the journey from white to black belt and how armbars evolve. If you haven’t seen it, it’s a wonderful one!
Which stage are you at? ^_^
