Risk Vs. Reward – The IBJJF Brasileiros


How much are you willing to risk in order to achieve a goal?

That was the question I was faced with this past week as the IBJJF Brazilian Nationals (Brasileiros) were approaching and I was trying to battle through a knee injury. Like I stated previously on the blog, my two primary competition goals this year were to win the Brasileiros and the World championships so the thought of having to pull out of this competition was killing me.

In this video I talk about my decision and how I came to it (and also give you guys a glimpse of how the beach in Ipanema looks likes).

Honestly though, I’m still a little on the fence in regards to the decision that I made and I’m very interested to hear if any of you have been in a similar situation. What did you end up doing and in hindsight are you happy with the decision you made? Please leave a comment  and share your experience…

I also want to say thanks to everyone for all the support on the Itamar Marani BJJ Blog Facbook page, I really appreciate it.
