An interesting spin on the sport theme using the world of jiu-jitsu. There is a slow building of relationship even though Spence and Will are attracted to each other pretty much from the beginning.

The story tells of the mental state required to perform well at jiu-jitsu, the control and relaxation required to better your opponent. Spence is new to the sport and pretty tense but very focused on learning the skills required. Under Will's instruction and with his support, he starts to relax and to see changes in his ability which also roll over into his view on life.

From initially thinking that Will wouldn't be into him and he was best just focusing on making friends and getting better at the sport, he finally makes his move. It was great to see Spence as the one making the move on Will rather than the other way around.

There is a little sex in the story but it must be the most non-explicit sex scene I have ever read. You can figure out what is happening without anything really being described other than a bit of touching but this seems to suit these characters.
