Did you know ... Bob Marley’s son does BJJ? Last night, I started watching Marley Africa Road Trip on Netflix. The first episode sets the stage by profiling the sons of Jamaican music legend Bob Marley just before they embark on a motorcycle trip through Africa. The segment on Ziggy Marley, who’s also a successful singer, shows him with his trainer John, who says they do Brazilian jiu-jitsu. Pretty cool! https://www.facebook.com/BlackBeltMagazine/posts/10151681124285771
