Search for: [Abstract = "The aim of this article is to present the specificity of „thick participation”, a research method proposed by Hawaiian anthropologist Jaida Kim Samudra, which assumes deep, bodily immersion in the studied reality, a method particularly recommended for anthropologists and social scientists in general who are engaged in martial arts studies. I am interested in how this method works in the ethnographic research within Brazilian jiu\-jitsu community in Warsaw. The paper can also be treated as a voice in the discussion on turning a private passion into a subject of systematic scientific investigation. The main conclusion is formulated as follows\: although I cannot deny that “thick participation” may open up new fascinating paths it also creates new dilemmas and research doubts that the anthropologist has to face. In sum, “thick participation” is framed as a skill, practical experience and proper „training”"]
