Evan Brown JRN 101 21 September 2011 Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Jiu-Jitsu is a martial art, self-defense system that focuses on ground fighting. For Matt Strack, a thirty-four year old redoing his undergraduate experience at Miami, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu has “the power to change your outlook and navigate the world differently.” It is a very humbling sport that has the ability to relieve anxiety and make you more humble. Matt Strack offered Miami’s first Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu class at the Rec center Monday evening as a free trial group fitness class, with the opportunity to sign up for the whole semester. Roughly 30 students and jiu-jitsu enthusiasts showed up to take the free class and see what it was about. For Isaac Walker, a twenty-one year old Fine Arts senior, the class was an outlet for a new social exercise. For Kevin Deal, a twenty-one year old senior, economics major, the class was another night of training away from boxing and swimming. Deal, an athletically built man said, “you don’t have to be stronger or faster, you find the easiest way out instead of trying to power through someone.”
