“You can’t burpee your way out of an armbar”
This is something we jokingly say all the time at Aces Jiu Jitsu Club. Crossfitters, Camp Gladiators and body builders should be applauded for choosing a healthy lifestyle. Learning a fight sport certainly isn’t for everyone (Professor Mikal would disagree with me on that one) but it’s important to highlight the effectiveness of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and the following video does just that. Not only is Jiu Jitsu as intense of a workout as anything you’ll see anywhere else, but it provides a person with the ability to defend themselves against much bigger and stronger opponents.
