It is about discipline, stretching, flexibility, and the ability to keep your mind under control in a stressful/difficult position. It is a combat sport, which can be used in nearly any aspect of fighting. To me, any fighter who is well trained in BJJ can get out of any hold.

They must wear a "gee" or "gi" which is basically a karate uniform. BUT, it can come in many different colors. It is not restriced to white.

One of my favorite fighters, BJ Penn, has basically mastered the art of BJJ.

^ In this position, if he pulls harder (you extend your legs and it pulls his arm) it can dislocate the shoulder or if he twists snaps the arm.

^ Choke hold which can literally suffocate someone. If you are holding properly, they cannot get you off in this position.

Very short clip showing his flexibility after mastering BJJ...

The flexibility, strength, mind visial, etc apart of being into BJJ... (another short clip)

BJJ is a sport made for someone smaller, or perhaps weaker, to over-come a larger, stronger, bigger opponent.

:D
That sounds... cool... but I don't really see myself doing any more fighting-related paintings. xD

I used to use a mouse, too-- but man, a tablet is so much more intuitive. Not to mention they have pressure sensitivity-- SO NICE!
I see some really amazing things done in SAI. Isn't that the free one?

I have a Wacom Intuos 4 medium graphics tablet... but I've only had it out of the box ONCE.
I find it intimidating NOW... but I KNOW I'd LOVE it if I got familiar with it.

Oh yeah! Definitely get familiar with it. :3 It takes a while to get used to but once you DO, it becomes like an extension of your hand.

I'm not sure how to set the custom settings...
That's where I got lost.

lol.

I wish I knew someone who actually could use one. I learn more from watching and doing rather than reading HOW to.

Droool Intuos! They have those in my college and omg they are very scary! They have a few Cintiqs (sp?) as well but they're so intimidating, they wont even open the boxes lol!
SAI isn't free, you can get a trial but it's pretty cheap so I just bought it. 2500 INR I think that is 55 USD..
The Bamboo came with a tutorial sort of thing, I managed to learn with that.. It was a step by step learn as you go kinda thing.
t's definitely more fun than a mouse, so much you can do with it!
