Blas wrote in to us here at The FightWorks Podcast, saying:
I asked a question to my former Jiu Jitsu Coach in Texas if he considered himself a Martial Artist. Much to my surprise he said no…he said that Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is the Anti-Martial Art and thus doesn’t consider himself to be a Martial Artist. This is coming from a black belt. So I pose a question for a toll possibly. How many of you BJJ players out there consider yourself to be a Martial Artist? I’d be curious to see the answer.
So what about you? You train Brazilian jiu-jitsu right? And do you think of yourself as a martial artist? Let us know by voting in the poll above and feel free to leave us a comment as well.
