Ed O'Neill's (Al Bundy) First Day of Gracie/Brazilian Jiu Jitsu


This is one of those Gracie Academy promotional videos, but one I thought would be good to share.
Remember "Married with Children"? If not, I am now legally obligated to call you a whippersnapper, but I digress. Ed O'Neill, who was Al Bundy on the show, was one of the first celebrities to pick up Jiu Jitsu 17 years ago, and I think his story is worth hearing as he recalls the mildly homophobic experience he had that so many of us can relate to on our first brush with BJJ.
