Jocko Willink, retired commander of the Navy SEAL Team Three Task Unit Bruiser, decorated Iraq War veteran, and all-around badass dude talks with Joe Rogan about why he thinks Jiu-Jitsu is a super power.

He furthers expounds the virtues of Jiu-Jitsu in an interview with Mens Journal about why he thinks it is the #1 activity to improve your life:

“Jiu Jitsu is a great workout both mentally and physically. You want to be strong for it and flexible for it. You want to have explosive energy and you want to have endurance. So it’s a very good all-around physical conditioning tool. Jiu Jitsu is probably the No. 1 activity that I could recommend to someone to improve their lives overall.”

It doesn’t hurt that it is a physical skill that I’d imagine that everyone would want to have. It’s another method in which to defend yourself, if absolutely necessary. Who wants to leave the door open to being dominated physically by another human being? Jiu Jitsu gives you the ability to not be dominated by that person, and to me that’s real peace of mind. I don’t have to worry about that when I’m walking around in the world. You know that you are able to handle yourself.
