As his favorite person/role model/fighter said, " Empty your mind, be formless, shapeless, like water. If you put water in a cup, it becomes the cup. Put water in a bottle, it becomes the bottle. Put water in a teapot, it becomes the teapot. Water can flow or crash. Be water my friend." - Bruce Lee. Brijesh is 9Round certified.
