UFC Commentator Joe Rogan on Wall Street Protest
It's nice to feel I'm not alone in the martial arts community, Joe Rogan has just produced this video and I think it says a lot.
Here's Joes martial arts profile, on top of being an actor: (wikipedia)
"During high school, Rogan became a practitioner of of kenpo karate at age 14, then went to Taekwondo. He eventually gained a black belt. He went on to become a four-time state champion in Massachusetts, and In 1987, he was the USA Taekwondo U.S. Open lightweight champion.
In 1996, Rogan began training in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu under Carlson Gracie at his school in Hollywood, California. After Gracie relocated to Chicago, Rogan later began training under Jean Jacques Machado, (a cousin of the Gracie family), eventually earning his brown belt under Machado. In addition, Rogan holds a brown belt in 10th Planet Jiu-Jitsu under Eddie Bravo."
It's going to be a long winter, and the core groups will hang on I'm sure. I live in such a remote community I will probably only be able to donate money through the internet supply scene. Spring will come and the movement will blossom.
But Joe Rogan is a high profile tough-guy in our scene and his endorsement means a lot. That along with the military veterans that are joining on, I think there is a sea change in American politics occurring, and it's about time.
More to come, I'm sure.
