I can imagine when most jiu-jitsu practitioners start training, there is a bit of relief that at least the possibility of obtaining massive head trauma while practicing the art is slight. Still, if you are going to practice the art of violence, you should be open-minded to study all aspects of violence and learn when to use it. We all have heard that quote, “90 percent of fights end up on the ground.”, and it is true, but we can learn a lot from other martial artists that can help improve our jiu-jitsu.
As a comedian and a 10th Planet Jiu-Jitsu blue belt, I get asked the same question a lot, “What is harder? Performing stand-up comedy or training Jiu-Jitsu?” and the answer is quite simple. They are both easy to start but hard to stay consistent at.
