Welcome to the all Jiu-Jitsu channel, where it’s all Jiu-Jitsu, all the time!
The other day my husband and I were talking about something which I don’t recall, then I somehow managed to change the subject around to Jiu-Jitsu. After a few minutes, Joe realized I had derailed the conversation, and he asked “Hey, why are we talking about Jiu-Jitsu?!” Well, that’s simple. It’s because there are less than six degrees of separation between any possible topic and my brain’s ability to connect it to Jiu-Jitsu!
For example, I was recently thinking about the fact that I usually answer the question “What super power would you like to have?” with “Invisibility.” (because for an introvert such as myself I believe it would come in handy in many ways!). Then I started wondering what it would be like to do BJJ if I was invisible, and alternately, what it would be like to grapple with an invisible person. I definitely think it would be better to use Jiu-Jitsu on an invisible person than to try to stand-up fight with them, because then you could at least feel what they were doing. I don’t know if I could learn Jiu-Jitsu from someone who’s invisible, so I’m glad that’s not Greg’s super power. I think his power is actually the ability to make his arms and legs grow longer when he rolls, like Stretch Armstrong.

For your listening pleasure, today we’re going to take you way back to 1978, with a song that is clearly about Jiu-Jitsu.
“Keep on rollin’, keep on rollin’…”
