The Patriots Hiring a Taekwondo Grandmaster to Train Pass Rushers - Sports Gossip
They'll do just about anything to gain an edge

The Boston Globe reported on Monday that the Pats are hiring martial arts expert Joe Kim to train their pass rushers  

The team is hiring martial arts expert Joe Kim as a pass-rushing consultant for the 2018 season, according to a league source. Kim, a Cleveland-area taekwondo master, has worked or consulted for 10 other NFL teams since 1992, most recently the Browns in 2016.

Kim is reuniting with Bill Belichick, who gave Kim his first football job in 1992 when Belichick was Cleveland’s head coach. Kim has coached Patriots defensive tackle Danny Shelton, who was a member of the 2016 Browns.

Kim, a former US national team member, will work alongside Patriots defensive line coach Brendan Daly, helping the defenders improve their hand-to-hand combat skills. Kim also will coach pass-rushing linebackers such as Dont’a Hightower. He has previously worked with offensive linemen to improve their hand combat as well.

Not surprising Belichick would do something so outside of the box. There's a reason he's an evil genius. At least it's not considered cheating.
