What got you into jiu jitsu?
I kept getting beat up at school when I was really little—I was one of those kids. I kept coming home with bloody noses and black eyes. My father was like “That’s it, you’re going here.” And I was like (sheepishly) “OK.”
The thing it helped with the most is not so much that it taught me how to fight as the discipline. It teaches you a work ethic, pushing yourself through it.
It also gives you a little bit of confidence because you know “I can do this if I have to,” but at the same time it doesn’t make you aggressive, which I like a lot. If you know you can break a guy’s arm it doesn’t mean that you should. They spent a lot of time in the school I went to teaching us how to avoid altercations using your words.
