1) Lex Fridman competed at the Chicago Open recently. Some commentary, matches posted, and odds/ends about traveling to compete (a necessity for those who are anything more than recreational players).
2) I try to keep the psychological-mumbo jumbo-science of progress and such-stuff to a minimum, but I came across this post over at The BJJ Mind.
I'll be posting more about this, but it can be boiled down to the idea/belief/premise that "the worlds of business and technology to describe how newer, “better” ways of doing things will upset existing methods and eventually overcome them."
- I've talked about the reticence of both sides or different factions of the grappling communities to isolate rather than cross train or experiment.
- I have met precious few instructors that will send a player/competitor to cross-train or supplement training elsewhere.
