Let us, Let us

Let us, Let us

Fall on the mat floor grasping, twirling in a fashion but controlled, reaching for arm and ankle.

To submit the body, to free the soul.

Let us, Let us

Sprawl against takedowns or plant a knee on the ground, pushing and sweeping out.

To fell our demons, to not let them take us down.

Let us, let us

Not tap early, but fight earnest and true, to the point where even joint begins to come unglued.

To know our limits, humility imbued.

Let us, let us

Forget the belt and stripe, let it fall away even inside, show up only because its right.

To remove the idea of failure, from even the deepest parts of our mind.

Let us, Let us.

Roll and learn for the rest of time.
