Summer Reading Program: Martial Arts!

Coach Craig (Willey) from White Mtn. Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and Mixed Martial Arts came to the library to tell us about the jiu-jitsu he practices and teaches and to show us a few techniques and positions. He told us about the history of jiu-jitsu and what it is and is not used for.
He had his two children there to help him. McGowan actually got his father in a hold that he had to "tap out" of because there was no way he could move. We were really impressed that a kid could do that!
It sounds like it takes lots of hard work, perseverance, and strength to be good at jui-jitsu. Getting different color belts can take a very long time.
It was fun to see what this kind of martial arts is all about! Thanks for your visit, Coach Craig!
