Robert Downey Jr. uses Kung Fu to help Addiction

Many martial arts enthusiasts already know about Joe Rogan's martial arts background because he often talks about it on his JRE Podcast. He trained Tae-Kwon-Do when he was young, earning a black belt. Then he eventually moved to the grappling art of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, also earning his black belt. Joe frequently gives his opinion on the topic of effectiveness and efficiency between different martial arts disciplines, specifically Kung Fu. Explaining how it is ineffective for MMA and self-defense.

In an old interview Joe says "These dudes have dedicated a big chunk of their life practicing this non-sense." 

Ironically, yesterday Joe had Robert Downey Jr. as a guest on his JRE podcast. Robert went on to explain how he turned to a Kung Fu style called Wing Chun as a form of therapy. He using it 15 years ago to help battle his drug addiction. 

"Half the stuff that I've been able to do right in my creative life, are principles that I learned on the mat with my Sifu." Downey explains to Joe. 

Joe mentions how Wing Chun is an "underrated art form" and explains how UFC fighter Tony Ferguson uses a Wing Chun technique called trapping, to help setup his elbow strikes. They eventually talk about how the first UFC was a wake up call to many martial artist because a lot of stuff they were doing really wasn't effective.
