Johnny loves Jiu-jitsu
Jujitsu is a not very well known sport, which emphasizes self-defense. Competitors control and submit to each other by using their bodies turning and thus earn points. In the end, whoever gets a better position will win the combat. Johnny said that this is similar to playing chess, not only are the skills and physical skills compared, but also the mind (in the strategy). In China, this sport is not very popular, only two men have won the black belt and we’re sure Johnny will do his best to become the third.
Did you know Johnny currently holds a blue belt in Brazilian Jiu-jitsu AND has participated in many open tournaments from the BJJ Shanghai Institute? According to Huang, this is a type of martial arts which uses body movements to control the opponent. The game is mainly about strength and finesse, based on taking the control position to win.
Huang Jingyu, likes, dislikes and more!
In his private time, he is 100% an athlete, keeping busy with things such as riding a motorcycle, skateboarding, swimming, boxing, and gymnastics. He loves to listen to Post-rock music when relaxing and even confessed he would like to be alone at times. Being alone allows him to clear his mind and soul and he doesn’t have to think about anything at all. People have spread rumours that he’s addicted to his phone and staying online, but that simply isn’t true. He doesn’t like to be sucked into electrical devices and doesn’t even like to play any online games.
