Video: Maynard James Keenan Practices Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu


Tool, A Perfect Circle and Puscifer frontman Maynard James Keenan is a man of many talents: singer, troll, vineyard proprietor and, as has been publicized here and there over the years, practitioner of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu.

Revolver Magazine recently spent time with Maynard to film a four-part video series, and in the final episode we get an up-close look into his martial arts routine. Not only do we get to watch Maynard practice the sport — in what I’m pretty sure is the first time ever on camera — but he also speaks at length about his approach to Jiu-Jitsu and how it’s connected to everything else he does in life.

Watch the video below (we apologize for the auto-play: can’t figure out how to turn it off!), and catch A Perfect Circle on tour right now.
