If you haven’t seen Glenn (No. 1 above) hanging around Starbucks lately, it’s probably 
because he’s been busy. Real busy. Earlier this week, friends learned that the town’s former 
Mayor had just won a Gold Medal in his first World Brazilian Jiu Jitsu competition.

 “Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is known as more than just a system of fighting. Since its inception in 
1914, its parent art of judo was separated from older systems of Japanese jujutsu by an important 
difference that was passed on to BJJ: it is not solely a martial art: it is also a sport; 
a method for promoting physical fitness and building character in young people; and, 
ultimately, a way (Do) of life”. (Source: wikipedia).

 The sport requires extraordinary discipline, patience, skill and strength, so the next time 
you see Glenn, think about that when you get ready to start your next political argument!

Congratulations champ! S. Henderson/MVNews
