Why the Strongest Navy SEAL trains Jiu Jitsu


Retired Navy SEAL team commander Jocko Willink was introduced to Brazilian Jiu Jitsu for the first time back in 1992 when his master chief put him in a rear naked choke. That was the moment when Jocko fell in love with the effectiveness of this martial art. 

Jocko now has his own Academy with his long time friend and instructor Dean Lister in San Diego, Victory MMA and Fitness. This is where they train Jiu Jitsu for combat self defense and for personal improvement. 

Willink also has his own Podcast named the “Jocko Podcast” where he and his co-host Echo Charles discuss multiple topics that focus on self discipline and leadership. 

On one of his Podcast episodes, Jocko says “Jiu Jitsu is probably the number one activity I could recommend to someone to improve their lives overall.”

Jocko is a busy guy. He’s married with kids, podcaster and business owner. He still sees the importance of making time to train Jiu Jitsu. Along with it being a great workout, it’s also a fun family activity. Willink shares the mat with his children. 

Here at our martial arts academy in Lafayette Louisiana, we offer classes for the whole family. Listen to Tommy explain why he started class with us. He’s a father who was looking for something different:
