Take It From Tom DeBlass: If John Danaher Asks You To Do Something, Do It, And Do It Correctly

Think your coach is tough? Then you’ve never trained under the eponymous Danaher Death Squad head coach John Danaher.

Don’t believe me? Ask Ocean County Jiu-Jitsu owner Tom DeBlass. Professor Deblass detailed how one student in Danaher’s class wasn’t listening to Professor Danaher and…well…read for yourself:

Prepare for an amazing story..
Everytime training with the Danaher, you truly don’t know what to expect. Often times during a private lesson an argument will break out always ending with John winning with a plethora of vicious verbal attacks. It’s simple however, if you execute the technique he is asking you to do, he is happy. If you don’t execute, he is very very disgusted. Yesterday David was asked to go in turtle position as John was demonstrating. For some reason David hunched his back. After the 2nd time John tried to correct him and David didn’t listen, John rained down three furious vicious double forearm strikes to David’s back. (David then listened) This ranks among the top 3 moments in my life, I was so damn happy. Next time you message me about having a tough training day ask yourself if you can last 5 minutes in our world.

In other words, if John Danaher tells you to do something in his class, you better damn well listen!
