Chattanooga Shooter Was A Jiu Jitsu Competitor




Chattanooga Shooter Was A Jiu Jitsu Competitor


The Chattanooga shooter, Mohammad Youssuf Abdulazeez, was described by his coach as a devoted and disciplined mixed martial artist (Source: CNN).


“His favorite training partner to grapple with — not striking, but actually submission grapple with, when you’re actually on the ground in close proximity contact with — was a Russian Jew, hardly what you would see as someone who would be a radical Islamist,” his coach said.


In the photo above you can see Abdulazeez wearing a medal from a Naga Jiu Jitsu tournament.


As a side note, Boston Marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev was also a grappler/wrestler (pictured below).




Prayers go out to the slain marines family and friends.
