The word ‘meme’ was derived from the Greek word ‘mimema’ which means ‘to imitate’ as defined by Richard Dawkins regarding evolution. Taken into the world of the internet, it simply means a viral idea and today, the most common revolve around humor.
For training Jiu-Jitsu, humor is important. From the start you are put in situations that if taken out of context can be rather awkward or not make sense– that’s where a good laugh comes in.

Training, competing, spending time with training partners, it’s driven by positivity.
