BJJ is a diverse niche and has its own terms, pros, cons, and fun elements. Just like anything else, BJJ is also subjected to a diverse number of highly relevant and funny memes. Let’s discuss some of the most famous and interesting memes about BJJ with their distinctive context.
BJJ practitioners are notorious for not being able to shut up about JiuJitsu and there comes those members who live for fun.
It is true though to some extent. BJJ is not just a fun sport, it includes a whole different, regulated, and better lifestyle. These BJJ novices provide fun by expressing their overwhelmingly impressed long talks about Jiu-Jitsu and creating organic material for the meme brigade.
Ah! There is nothing more appealing to a BJJ White belt than the mere thought of the upper belt promotion. They love to talk about it, strive hard to get to the next level, and just couldn’t help themselves yearning for the promotion. In this meme, this infamous tendency of BJJ novices is expressed by the famous character of “Lord of the Rings” and his uncontrollable affiliation with his “Precious”, you know exactly what.
Jiu-Jitsu in BJJ is believed to be interpreted as “The Gentle Art”. This translation is often mocked by the meemers. The highly addictive nature of BJJ is reflected in this meme. People just can’t help themselves from training in BJJ, this includes rolling, sparring (to fighters practicing moves on and with each other), and Drilling. (repeatedly training one move for mastery) So let’s go choke our friends.
Ohh man, stretching the physical limits is what describes the BJJ rolling and if your coach decided to partner up with you, this meme is what happens next. De Caprio from “The Wolf of Wall Street” trying to get into his car after being partially paralyzed. Daymn. Nothing could be more accurate about the aftermath of rolling with your coach. Best of luck with your next rolling session. I hope you don’t end up rolling with your coach again.
For Jiu-Jitsu practitioners, there is nothing more addictive than BJJ training. BJJ fighters are notorious for not wanting to and not being able to skip training days even after getting injured. The hilariously smiling face of Tom Hardy expresses the helplessness of those who expect BJJ practitioners to stop training and take some recovery time after the injury.
This not-so-famous meme features the best Jiu-Jitsu coach, MMA trainer, and rash guard superhero, John Danaher, who is unquestionably considered the wizard of BJJ. This meme is created from the podcast of Joe Rogan Experience. In this specific podcast, John savagely rained Joe with a series of polite questions about BJJ. And ended up savagely schooling Joe about Jiu-Jitsu ideology by encapsulating the whole BJJ winning strategy in four steps.
As this is the same with almost every meme, only people who understood jiu-jitsu got the idea of what exactly happened in that podcast and Professor John ended up in this meme, trolling Joe Rogan.
This is the story of every dedicated Jiu-Jitsu practitioner. Yes! Jiu-jitsu is highly time intensive and requires full attention. If you want to progress in 10,15 years, you need to give time, dedication, and attention and have to sacrifice a lot of things as described in this meme.
The biggest nightmare of every Jiu-Jitsu player is when his/her back is controlled by the opponent. So what could be more relieving than knowing that right when your back is taken, there is no time for your opponent to submit you with RNC or Collar choke.
The people who train Jiu-Jitsu love nothing more than to talk about Jiu-Jitsu. Their nightmare is when they are surrounded by people but no one is familiar with their favorite topic/passion. It just broke their heart and was an instant turn-off. Jiu-Jitsu is called “The Gentle Art” and is almost always mocked by the meemers. How can you call yourself a gentle art when in reality you strangle people to death and call it a recreational healthy martial art occupation? Yeah, that’s the intended pun.
It is always the intended pun that makes the memes fun to watch, and recreational to share with like-minded people. Memes carry the element of universal acknowledgment and make them acceptable and enjoyable for all across mundane boundaries.
