NY Giants Eli Manning uses Jiu Jitsu techniques Once the 2010 season was complete, both Sullivan and Manning sat down to discuss goals for the upcoming season. The three main goals decided upon were ‘leadership, decision-making, and accuracy’. I wonder where he came up with these goals?
Improved decision-making. That was one of those goals to come from last January’s meeting, all of which are written at the three points of a triangle used by the Gracie family, the famed Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu clan admired by Sullivan, a former Army Ranger, Jiu-Jitsu blue belt and mixed-martial-arts fanatic.
Sullivan took the basics of the Gracie Family triangle and applied them on the grid-iron, proving that many lessons in jiu jitsu are not just sport specific, they’re life tools.
