Podcast-Interview with Joe Rogan
“Yeah you’re into Jiu Jitsu. I remember I ran into you at the UFC a couple years ago, and you were like, really into Jiu Jitsu, like you train hard.” Rogan recalled.
Demi agreed that she was actually “super into” Jiu Jitsu, but had to take a break because of COVID-19.
“I was super super into it until COVID hit, and when COVID hit, I just, I got really really nervous, cuz I have asthma, autoimmune and s***. So, I got really nervous about training so close with anybody that I took a break from it, and I’m anxious to get back. I can’t wait to train.”, she said. “Its the best thing I found, I mean, outside of meditation.”
When Joe asked if she remembers the first time she tapped anyone out, she said that she actually doesn’t remember it.
“Thats good, that means you’ve probably tapped a bunch of people out.”, Rogan joked.
“I have tapped out a few people in my time.”, Demi replied with a proud smile.
“What’s really wild is when you surpass yourself.”, she continued. “I never thought that I’d get a blue belt. I just never thought that I’d be a belt in anything. I’m a singer. Hard work pays off, and its just really cool when you get to prove yourself wrong.
