The Chicago Bears Have Hired a Martial Arts Coach

Wednesday February 12th, 2014

Green Bay Packers v Chicago Bears

The Chicago Bears have hired Tae Kwon Do grand master Joe Kim to help players with their hand technique. Kim has an impressive NFL résumé (including the Browns, the Packers, the Broncos, the Cowboys, and the Giants) and will be training the Bears to use their hands more effectively in blocking and escaping blocks.

I suppose this is as good an idea as any to fix a defense that uncharacteristically finished near the bottom of the league in 2013.

The players should begin training soon, beginning of course with the Wax On, Wax Off drill.
