I hate looking at my jiu-jitsu news feeds and seeing the exaaaaaaaaact saaaaaaaaame connnnnnntent shared by the people I follow/like/etc. I ask myself, “Are they really that oblivious that their readers/fans/followers/etc., more than likely, also follow the person whose content they are sharing?”
As a result, I have the honor of being
spammed blessed with the same technique from Caio Terra from 5-10 different fan pages/twitter users/etc. Don’t get me wrong, I love me some Caio Terra jiu-jitsu techniques. The point is that Caio has a pretty extensive following, and if I want to see his techniques, I’ll get them straight from his own fan page/twitter/etc.
THANK YOU VERY MUCH.
I have had it up to here with the over sharing. People, it’s honestly okay to not have something new to “share” every hour of the day. Do you remember what #outside looks like? For the love of Helio, GIVE THE SHARING A BREAK!
K, I’m done with my /r/rant. I will say, though, if you have a decent sized following you should try to share content of value from people who have smaller voices. Share techniques from people who aren’t being listened to, share incredible matches from, dare I say, non-world-champions, share insights and perspectives that otherwise wouldn’t be come across just browsing the web. Help out the #littleguys, isn’t that more aligned with the spirit of #jiujitsu anyway?
Had enough of the social media #wordplay? As have I. I will now step off my soap box and practice what I preach. I postulate that if I provide good resources of value in an easily consumable way, good things will happen for us all. Check out these posts I found useful/entertaining from the past week:
I read this one a couple of times. There is a lot of value in this post with a lot of details regarding Rodolfo Vieira’s throws as well as good judo principles.

3. Bruce Lee on Success
5. The Barata Plata
And, probably, the best flying arm bar I have ever seen:
That’s it for the week folks. If this is helpful for people, I’ll try to maintain this as a weekly resource. If not, then this will be the last one.
