For those who don’t know, Joe Rogan (yeah, the Fear Factor guy) is a legitimate martial artist. He was a national Taekwondo champion, and is currently a brown belt in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. As he tells it, he quit training Taekwondo when he realized that most of its techniques were useless in real fights. Instead, he switched to Muay Thai and Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, and has apparently become a seriously good practitioner.
In any case, here’s a 3 minute clip where he makes some excellent points regarding the benefits of training Brazilian Jiu Jitsu.
Also, heads up, there’s some profanity.
