The Peaceful Fighter
This time I have more words than photos. No worries! Just a few more.

Since spring 2020, when I was back in Germany, I went back to martial arts in my home area, Bernau. Ju Jutsu & Judo was my choice. Lucky that these two clubs are sharing one dojo. I have experience from different martial arts many years ago and wanted to start at the scratch.
Corona forged plans not only different in my choice of home, it influenced my sport life. Unfortunately, caused by the restrictions, the training wasn't happening in the past two winters, around 9 months all together.
My goal was to reach the 2nd Kyu in Ju Jutsu in 2022 before I go to Barcelona to continue there with an advanced degree, studying the traditional Japanese martial art.
I could manage to do my exam, achieved new knowledge and wearing proudly the 4th Kyu. A big thank you to my Senseis, who helped me so passionately.

I hope to find a good dojo in Barcelona. Further, I will look for more Randori, sparring, maybe MMA if the Sensei and partners are nice. I'm not a fighter for competition, at least I haven't trained like it, but I really like Randori and have learned a lot while doing it. First, dojo for Ju Jutsu. That could be already challenging, as Ju Jutsu is many times confused with Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is great and I like it. Tough drills. BJJ was developed by the Gracie family through training of the Japanese judoka, Mitsuyo Maeda, and originally from Kano, Judo, which developed from Ju Jutsu, or Jiu Jitsu. Which in turn is a close combat system, with and without weapon, used in a defensive or offensive manner to kill or subdue one or more weaponless or armed and armoured opponents. But we don't want to kill each other anymore, right? In addition, what evolves from what isn't always clear. Important is, and traditionally, I'd say like a Samurai, we are all one, we want to enjoy the discipline, fun, competition and able to defence ourselves and people at need.
The respect to each other, the avoidance to get involved in any conflict, is mastery. The only time to get involved is to protect the people in need.
People in need.
Easy to say when I see some villains in our ranks who take profit of other beings.
Shouldn’t they be incapacitated? What about nestlé, coca cola, the bank system, the political and economic system, and so on? Aren’t they villains?
But how could I incapacitate them? Is it one single person or many?
Would it change if they disappear? I guess I would not deliver a good assassin. Too many moral and ethical questions.
Although, I’m sporty and my experience help a lot of being a good choice of a great competitor.
Another very important point is, as soon as my mind was playing with prejudices, I felt many surprises during a sparring. Young, old, lady, gentlemen, thin or thick. All of these can hide a bunch of surprises.

A Japanese saying:
It's better to be a warrior in a garden than a gardener in a war.
I'm a peaceful fighter. I like the discipline, the training, to balance my mind and body. And the playful way to rampage.
I found a matching name.
One day you will find me teaching you how to punch a punching bag in a mindful, open-hearted and spiritual way.
For me, it's not only about fighting, punches, kicks and choke somebody to never-land. It's about controlling my emotions. Thinking before acting. Being objective.

I’m happy about your experience.
And let me know if you know any good dojos in Barcelona.
See you at our next Randori ^_^

I always cringe when weak people talk about being peaceful and non-violent and think to myself 'You got no other choice - you couldn't fight, even if you wanted to'.
I've met you and seen you and even if I had a reason to, I'd think twice before fucking with you :D
Keep it up dude!
