It seems that our media crews are becoming more knowledgable these days about our martial art.

A store owner in Orlando, Florida was giving a video interview about the recent shoplifters at his store when mid-interview he spots one of the suspects and runs to catch him while leaving. The store owner grabbed onto the suspect, who was previously seen on tape stuffing a whole carton of eggs into his pants, and threw him to the floor, holding the seatbelt position and even sinking the hooks.

Initially referred to as a full nelson by the CNN correspondents, a reporter corrects himself after seeing the footage and attributes the moves to Jiu-Jitsu. He credits Jiu-Jitsu as he mentions how the store ownerput his legs around him.

This position earned the store owner four points within an IBJJF competition as well as the pleasure of being reimbursed for his stolen goods and sending a thief to jail.
