Here is an example of an overrated motherly love towards a young son who was struggling to get out of a side control position. I found this article written by Erin Herle on graciemag.com, and was surprised how this story reached Brazil before i knew about it!!!
Worried mother Amani Al Hashemi interrupts the opening day of the Abu Dhabi Jiu-Jitsu Cup as she rushes to check on her son, 11-year-old Nahian Abdalla Rashid, after she thought he’s been injured during a fight in the children’s competition yesterday. The event, which includes children’s and adult’s contests, was being held at the First Gulf Bank Arena, the new indoor sports hall at Zayed Sports City in the capital, until Saturday.
What do you think your mother would have done ?
Note that this kid has nothing to be ashamed of. He will surely remember this incident which shows the best mix in the world, a mothers gentle heart and JiuJitsu our gentle art! Keep it real and keep rollin people!
