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.
