Since starting Gracie jiu-jitsu it has affected me in so many positive ways and after every lesson I always leave more confident in myself and eager for the next lesson to get my next fix! At each Combatives class I always watch the demonstration slices and wonder about the perfect technique execution, thinking about what I should be doing to help myself become a better jiu-jitsu practitioner.
One night, when I got home from a lesson I was Googling inspirational quotes from jiu-jitsu and that’s when I came across this awesome quote from an unknown judoka (Credit to Gracie Barra for sharing this quote on their website)
The perfect technique is one without much effort or conscious thought applied at the right time in the right direction, with the right amount of force – a spontaneous reaction to the opportunity presented by the opponent’s movement.
This quote immediately hit home and really resonated with me and I couldn’t resist the temptation of bringing this quote to life in the form of a typographic poster (my first attempt as well!)
Hope you like it.
