It wasn't long ago when social media was clowning Tua Tagovailoa for taking Jiu-Jitsu classes to learn how to fall. Well, it looks like that investment has paid off. When I first heard about it, I thought the headlines were funny, "24 year old man has to learn how to fall." I get it, it's not your everyday headline, but as weird as it sounds, it was true. Tua had "2" (he was clearly concussed against the Bills) concussions in 2022 and neither of them came off big hits. They were caused by his inability to fall properly. Every time he got tackled he would slam the back of his head on the ground like a 2 year old.
Exhibit B)Exhibit C) Now, Tua looks like a ninja on the field. Backflips, summersaults, double leg take downs, you name it Tua's doing it.
