Updated Blogroll and Big Thanks

I’ve added OkKimonos Blog to the blogroll. I’m not sure why the store is Ok! Kimonos and the blog is styled as OkKimonos. I admittedly know nothing about branding outside picking fonts.

As I alluded to sometime last week, I’ve felt like I’ve fallen away from the community and I wanted to thank everyone who’s been keeping up with BJJ blogging because reading through the posts helped me feel like I was picking up as though I never left. Special thanks to these guys (sorry for not knowing everyone’s real names…):

  • Brendan (Ok! Kimonos). You’ve been awesome sharing posts on Twitter that I keep feeling are targeted toward me and your emails help me feel a part of the community.
  • Can (Slideyfoot). I love your blog. Being able to read through what you’ve been teaching helps me feel a bit better about missing classes.
  • Chelsea (TAP TAP TAP). You’re probably one of the most awesome people to write a blog. I love the perspective. You definitely make me feel like a wimp for not pushing myself harder.
  • Jezus. Knowing that you’ve been reading pushes me to keep writing which in turn forces me to keep up with the community.
  • bjjmindset. Your comments are one of the reasons I got back in rather than just quitting. Thank you. I’ll probably hit you up for leg lock defenses once I can get back on the ground more freely.

  1. Thanks so much for including me! It’s such an honor!

    The reason for the confusion in branding both sites is that I’m a huge fan of the brand SuperDry and my logo at the top of the Ok! Kimonos Blog is a tribute to them.

    I’m SO THANKFUL that you’ve found the emails to be valuable as well 🙂

  2. I actually got mentioned? Quite surprised, many thanks! But yes, I do keep reading – I’ve gotten a lot of good things out of your blog, and your writings have often made me reevaluate my perspective, or made me delve deeper into things I would’ve otherwise not bothered with.

    Long story short, I’m equally grateful to see you keep up with your blog!
