The site

Through Jiu-Jitsu is an exploration of the way the practice of the art of Brazilian jiu-jitsu affects one’s reading of and interaction with the world outside.  The site is composed of essays, interviews, and reviews on topics where jiu-jitsu’s principles (and martial arts, in general) are explored.  I welcome you sharing your own experiences.

I earn my living as a professor of literature, having earned my Ph.D. from Berkeley.  I teach courses in ethnic American literature, American poetry, literary theory, and composition & rhetoric.
