The Weekly Grind: Dillon Danis chugs Proper Twelve bottle, Ben Askren goes on Danis roasting spree

New, comments

The life of a professional fighter isn’t all glitz and glamour.

As if getting punched, kicked, kneed, choked and twisted into a pretzel on a regular basis isn’t enough, fighters attract a general wackiness that makes their lives, well...interesting.

To commemorate these day-to-day hardships, slip-ups, pranks, and more, we bring you, “The Weekly Grind.”

Na hora de limpar o dojo, não existe diferença entre mais ou menos graduado! O "soji" é uma palavra japonesa que significa "limpar". Trata-se de uma tradição nas escolas, templos e dojos de artes marciais japoneses: o "soji no jikan", que seria a "hora da limpeza". . Para a limpeza, formam-se grupos com um líder ou coordenador que pegam seu material e limpam o local determinado por não mais que 15 minutos. Ao final, o líder verifica ou inspeciona o local, conversa com o grupo para motivá-los a manter a tradição, reverencia e determina dispersão do grupo. Importante: o líder também participa da limpeza com os demais! . Mais que uma limpeza física, o Soji é uma limpeza do ego. Na prática, aprendemos a humildade e podemos meditar e refletir sobre nossos erros e acertos. Embora seja mais comum na tradição oriental, é um ato educacional que todo dojo deveria adotar. / When it’s time to clean the dojo, there are no differences between those with different belts. “Soji” is a Japanese word that means “to clean”. It’s a tradition in Japanese schools, temples and martial arts dojos: “soji no jikan” translates to “time to clean”. . For cleaning, groups are formed with a leader or coordinator who pick up their material and clean the determined area for no longer than 15 minutes. At the end, the leader checks or inspects the area, talks to the group to motivate them to keep the tradition, bows and excuses the group. Important: the leader also participates in cleaning with the others! . More than just physically cleaning, Soji cleans the ego. In practice, we learn humility and can meditate and reflect about right and wrong. Even though it is most common in Eastern tradition, it’s and educational act that every dojo should adopt.
