WARNING! BJJ may be hazardous to your… dinner table?

Just look at the sweet little face peering around that very tight and technically sound choke.  Nothing like a little quality mother-daughter time at the dinner table, I always say.

It’s like the look on her face is saying, “Look, Daddy! Look at how good I can choke Mommy”.

And let me tell you, Daddy was pleased. I mean, obviously, since he took a photo to document it.

So, this begs us to ask a series of questions:

  • Do your kids ever “choke you”?
  • Do you ever try to hug your spouse only to be met with a fight for the “under-hooks”?
  • Do you find that you spend an inordinate amount of time on your kitchen floor”?
  • When you reach out to touch your loved one, do you often and suddenly find yourself in an “armbar”?
  • Is there an accumulation of “gis” occupying a large space in a certain area of your home?
  • Is your living room or basement floor covered in “mats” ?

If you have answered “YES” to any or all of these questions, you or one or more of your family members may be training Brazilian Jiu Jitsu.

Other warning signs may include (but are not limited to):

While there is no hope of  completely curing a person or family that is suffering from Brazilian Jiu Jitsu training, most of these symptoms can be managed with good communication, self control, or the timely application of a properly executed “tap”.  (see picture above)

Finally, for those of you who are not afflicted but have family members who are, BE WARNED: Brazilian Jiu Jitsu may be HIGHLY CONTAGIOUS.

  1. Very funny, I always get underhooks during hugs.

    • Haha, I’m not sure if you know this, Byron, but a gesture of true love is to GIVE the underhooks. It’s a sacrifice, I know, but it’s SO meaningful. :)
