Chess Icon Josh Waitzkin Training with Marcelo Garcia

As many of you know Josh Waitzkin has been an early supporter of HHCF. He wrote an amazing book about the connection between chess and martial arts called The Art of Learning. Its the official book of this organization.

Outside of being a world champion in Tai Chi Chuan, he trains daily in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. Here is a clip of Josh (in brown shirt) training with his coach Marcelo Garcia (thats like training in hoops with Michael Jordan).  For more cool stuff from Josh and Marcelo visit Big thanks to Abdal-Hayy for sending me this clip.

    I have just watched “Searching Boby Fisher”, and have founded this blog casually. I’d like to take the opportunity to say that the message I founded in the film, is that, “to have a big heart is the most important thing”. Thats what in my opinion makes the difference between the points of view things in life. Thank you.
