Yesterday it was reported that an individual who assaulted a 7-Eleven employee was immediately apprehended by a customer who happens to be a black belt in Jiu-Jitsu.
“Hey, hey homie. Let me go, man, homie,” Cruz, bent like a pretzel, begged as 3rd-degree black belt jiu-jitsu instructor Idriz Redzovic pinned him to the floor of an Uptown convenience store Thursday evening.
It didn’t work.
“He assaulted a 7-Eleven employee, so I jumped in and took him to the ground and did a gift wrap hold, which is taught in the art of Jiu-Jitsu,” Redzovic explains. He teaches the martial art at Supreme Jiu-Jitsu Chicago.
Disclaimer: I don’t know if he is an actual OGer, but he sounds like one.
