Jiu-Jitsu Needed in Yellowstone!

Yellowstone 2010 Bison

I haven’t posted for a while because I went on holiday with the wife’s side of the family to Yellowstone National Park.  The picture is of some bison we saw on our visit.  You can’t see them very well.  My iPhone is much better at up close pictures but the over all view is beautiful so I used it.  That is the Madison River that separates me from the bison.  After the vacation I needed a vacation, so I took a sabbatical.  Believe it or not, I kept a eye open for Jiu-Jitsu schools in my long travels.  I figured even in the "wilderness" they had a McDonalds there must be at least one school I can visit while I’m out and about.  Nope!  Not a single school.  Oh I could have done Yoga or Palates in West Yellowstone.  But when it comes to facing anything in the great outdoors I doubt "downward-facing-dog" will do much for you.  They need at least one BJJ school in each of the major tourist towns in Yellowstone.  Alright, maybe my reasoning isn’t the strongest but if I could make a living teaching BJJ and live in Yellowstone, I’d put in my 2 weeks today and the house up for sale.

Jiu-Jitsu is Life and Life is Jiu-Jitsu

  2. And there you have it! The power of the blog. If you are doing all the driving like I did in Yellowstone, then Bozeman isn’t that far away. Thank you Peter for letting us know where we can get our BJJ fix while at Yellowstone.

  3. Or you could grapple with the bison…

  4. You know the thought occurred to me. But more along the lines of watching some one else do it. You see on the map of Yellowstone and throughout the whole place you see warnings saying “Don’t approach the bison” or “People are gored each year” but it didn’t stop people. I was wanting to see someone grapple with a bison. I was disappointed. Maybe the bison just didn’t want to tap a few tourist out.
