The Enso, or Zen circle, is one of the most appealing themes in Zen art.
The Enso itself is a universal symbol of wholeness and completion, strength and elegance and the cyclical nature of existence, and for us this relates very well to our Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Journey.
Each respective belt represents a step towards a better understanding of who we are and the search for the perfect balance in our games. It is a testament to the dedication and devotion shown towards the art of BJJ and our personal development. In turn, each belt stamps its own identity and requirements on us as we mature through the BJJ ranks.
When drawn, the circle may be open or closed.
When drawn open the Enso circle is incomplete, allowing for movement and development. Zen practitioners relate the idea to wabi sabi, the beauty of imperfection.
When the circle is closed, it represents perfection.
Our open Enso represents the beauty of having the lifelong pursuit of an unattainable goal, which of course is the mastery of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu.
