I’ve noticed that most of the classes at the dojo are usually cancelled on holidays, except for Jiu-Jitsu. Sometimes they try to cancel it, but if someone with a key (and someone for them to whoop on) can make it, there will be a Jiu-Jitsu class. We already have more classes per week than any other art in the school, but we won’t even take a holiday!
I’m not trying to say Jiu-Jitsu students are more dedicated…perhaps addicted is a better word. Last winter when there was so much snow that Lincoln came to a virtual standstill, I heard a rumor that Danger went to the dojo anyway, and was shivering and disappointed when no one else showed up for class. I also heard that he accused the rest of us of being total wusses, and not loving Jiu-Jitsu enough to risk our lives to get there, like he did.
It’s Labor Day (or Thanksgiving, or New Years, or Mother’s Day)?
So what, let’s train Jiu-Jitsu!
The heat index is 187°?
Who cares, wanna roll?
The roof caved in and the mat is buried under twelve inches of snow?
I’ll put my heavy gi on, and we’re all good!
We have to evacuate the building because it’s on fire?
I’ll just be a minute, I’m really, really close to tapping Ken out!
