Kinda True Jiu-Jitsu News: Self-Help Group for Jiu-Jitsu Addicts Turns Into Open Mat

An experimental program to cure grapplers of their Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu addiction was going well until eight minutes into the first meeting when the conversation topic turned to purple belt Sandra Warden’s inability to think about anything other than her problems finishing a certain collar choke. As the participants eagerly began to troubleshoot Warden’s issue, the Brazilian Jiu-jitsu Anonymous meeting slid from psychologist Chad Trotter’s control and suddenly degraded into a full fledged open mat session. According to the therapist, “Sandra explained her problem about correct hand placement when choking from the mount and the next thing I know I have four pairs of people grappling in front of me.” With group therapy no longer a viable treatment for jiu-jitsu addiction, experts are now calling for the return of more controversial therapies like electroshock and the prefrontal lobotomy.
