Joe Rogan explains Jiu Jitsu Benefits

 in Lafayette - Champagne's Martial Arts

Most people know Joe Rogan for his comedy and UFC commentating. What people don't know is that he's a long time martial artist. He starting training Tae Kwon Do as a kid, earned his black belt and competed in many high level tournaments. He has a hard killer old school kicking style. He also currently trains Brazilian Jiu Jitsu (BJJ) and has been for years. He earned his BJJ black belt also. 

He also has his own podcast called the "Joe Rogan Experiment". He has many episodes that cover a broad range of topics explained by experts from each field. Joe often brings up how and why martial arts are good for people to train. Joe does a good job of explaining it but it's hard to put a fine point on the matter. I was hooked the first time I rolled. It's a humbling experience when you're so much stronger than your opponent but no matter what you do or how hard you go you can tell they're just playing with you, like a toy, only to be choked out or submitted whenever they feel like it. And there is nothing you can do to stop it.

 

 

"Jiu Jitsu is really, really hard to do. So you are solving problems. I think Jiu Jitsu serves two purposes: it's incredibly grueling in terms of the sparring process, just rolling and competing with each other. Even in a friendly roll with a guy that I really like, and we're laughing and we slap hands every time someone taps out the other... It's SO difficult. Your body's taxed so hard and your mind is taxed because you're dealing with countering, you're dealing with setting up moves, you're thinking several steps ahead and you're adjusting those thoughts based on what the person you're sparring with is doing also. So people get really addicted to Jiu Jitsu for all the right reasons. For the most part I've found that Jiu Jitsu people are way more mellow than most people would expect. Way less likely to respond to something in a dumb or imbalanced way. Because what ever your body, whatever requirements that we're addressing, your body has all that in Jiu Jitsu with out the real violence... like no ones trying to kill you. They're just trying to do this thing to you and you're trying to do that thing to the, and those things mimic actual combat, actual real life and death struggle in a friendly environment." says Joe Rogan
