Maristé is a cartoonist that also does BJJ. In this new video of hers she is “accused” of being too old for having stuffed animals and is forced to prove the naysayer wrong. The bruises on her legs are a definite indicator that she is an avid Jiu Jitsu practitioner! Too funny!
Here is a sample of her BJJ Cartooning!

This is 26 year old Canadian, Sarah “The Bully” Smith. She is a Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Blue Belt that is hellbent on being a Black Belt world champion in the future. Our friend Dainis Nguyen thought you all might like to see Sarah absolutely killing it in competition as a White Belt.

“Jesus Didn’t Tap.” Christian Churches Begin Supporting MMA
In a seemingly unlikely turn of events hundreds of churches have begun encouraging members to beat each other up because ‘men are made for combat’. You cannot make this stuff up folks. Christian MMA is on the way.
According to RawStory more than 700 evangelical US churches now integrate MMA (a combination of Kickboxing, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, Greco-Roman Wrestling and Thai Boxing) into their ministry programs. The phenomenon has even been featured in a recent documentary film, 2014’s Fight Church.
This tactic has been used in the past to bring men to the Church. Again according to RawStory, “The notion that MMA and Christianity are compatible bedfellows is loosely based on the ideology of Muscular Christianity, a mostly-male, Victorian-era movement that linked the gospel with physical and mental toughness. Two leaders of the movement – Charles Kingsley, a clergymen and scholar, and Thomas Hughes, a celebrated Victorian era author (and boxing coach) – sought to counter the perceived feminization of Church and to attract men to the faith.”
I’m sure the thousands of women who do BJJ and MMA are loving hearing this…
What do you all think about this one? See you on Sunday?
(Sometimes memes do come true)
