Video Shows How Tua Tagovailoa’s Jiu-Jitsu Training Has Changed The Way He Falls When Hit

This offseason, Tua Tagovailoa traded time on the football field for time on the mat, taking up Jiu Jitsu training in order to teach himself a new way to fall.

The Dolphins QB’s career was in jeopardy last season when he suffered back-to-back concussions after being hit, forcing the back of his head to be whipped back, impacting the turf.

The training, which has taught him to contort his body into a spin upon contact with the turf, could be seen in action Sunday during this pressure from the Panthers defense.
