Between the many classic TV series in the 90s, the television series “Married… with Children” certainly stands out, or in other words it was unique in that time. From many 90s family sitcoms this TV show had completely different concept of family. Actually it was showing a Chicago family Bundys where everything was not ideal. Also a very interesting fact is that the “Married With Children” is Fox longest-lasting sitcom. Which only proves what success it had. But we can certainly agree that we all love Al Bundy, and still today nothing changes about that. Here is a pure legend!
There are many facts but also surprises about “Married With Children” for which we are pretty sure you didn’t know. So today we are going to write about first fact about Ed O’Neill which represents the main role Al Bundy.
Many years ago approximately 30 years ago, Ed O’Neill was invited by his friend to come with him to visit the Gracie Academy in Torrance, CA. He was invited to see what he was doing at Gracie Academy. Beginning of training did not yield satisfactory results, because he was not interesting in this kind of class. But he remained to the end of the class, and eventually he changed opinion about that. So O’Neill started training Jiu-Jitsu, incredible but true. To be more precise he started to train Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. It is certainly commendable, because training any kind of sport is good for health. Therefore when he is not working or acting, he is training Jiu-Jitsu. After much sweat and work he received a Black Belt which is definitely amazing. He is also very proud of his success, although he thinks his family is the greatest achievement. So be careful because Al Bundy can kick your butt.
So as we said earlier Ed O’Neill received black belt in 2007. Since then he is not separated from black belt, wherever he goes the black belt goes with him. Of course we are joking. Besides that if you don’t know nothing about Jiu-Jitsu, then we can tell you that the word “jiu-jitsu” is associated with Japan normally. Regarding the meaning of the word on Japanese it means the body’s elasticity. Simply said it means that a person who trains the Jiu-Jitsu can simply bend in any direction. For us this is not surprising because Samurai warriors trained Jiu-Jitsu which would give them the ability to fight without weapon if of course it is necessary.
So you can see that this sport is actually dangerous, but at the same time it kept Ed O’Neill powerful and healthy. So be careful with Al bundy.
