Science! Scientists Map Out The Awkwardness Of Physical Contact With Others


So we all know that one of the biggest barriers when it comes to jiu jitsu is the unwillingness to engage in physical contact with others. Well, scientists apparently have mapped out what is considered the “no go” zones when it comes to touch, based on the relationship with another person.

As the article states, “physical contact is hugely tied to social bonding and social structure”, which is probably why there is such a close knit bond with the people you train with in the gym: not only are you all training together with (usually) the same group over and over again, but this is a full contact sport- you are engaging in TONS of physical contact with someone.

Check it out, and let me know what you think. Otherwise, have a great day everyone!
