Jack Lightfoot tries his hand at jiu-jitsu, a martial art that is new to him. With his natural athleticism and quick reflexes, he excels at many of the moves, but when he tries to use a particular trick in a match, it backfires spectacularly. Embarrassed and humbled, he must regroup and figure out how to bounce back from defeat.
