BJJ Haiku

A silly post for my silly blog. I should point out these aren’t true Haiku, as I can’t write in Japanese so you get these westernised ones instead. Still, kept me amused for a few hours on twitter whilst at work. Enjoy. Or not.

Every night I die
I am smashed more than smashing
Every night, Reborn

This is my Blue Belt
There are many just like it
But this one is mine *

….

Opponent in guard
Heavy, crushing,  starts to pass
I reverse my sweep
..
 
Worry not about
Your friends, their medals, or belts
It is your  Journey

..

Strong, Tall and Mighty
Smashes opponents like bugs
Wish he was my Dad

..

A fool speaks and says
“Girls can’t fight, they just pull hair. “
HA! Real girls pull Guard
 

And finally, from my good rocking buddy at training, a worryingly accurate Haiku all about me…

..

When sober pure
In drink he finds happiness
My angry friend
 .

… I like it.

*Obviously inspired by The Rifleman’s Creed. Which, if you haven’t already, you should read. Not least to get an appreciation of how fucking mental the US forces are.
