This week on Acta Non Verba Emily Kwok shares how she became an early pioneer of Brazilian jujitsu in North America and why we need to challenge ourselves in order to continue growing. Join me and Emily and we discuss how jujitsu can foster a practice of introspection and self-development, as well how you can teach yourself to be self-reliant.
