    Report: Chicago Bears hire martial arts coach Joe Kim

    The Chicago Bears are looking for the black-belt treatment.
    The team has hired martial arts expert Joe Kim to help develop hand technique and skill development, multiple outlets reported Tuesday.

    Kim reportedly will work with all of the Bears position groups to help improve players' ability to block or escape blocks.
    The Bears will become the ninth NFL organization Kim has worked for since Bill Belichick's Cleveland Browns brought him in for the 1992 season. Kim most recently worked with the Kansas City Chiefs from 2010 to 2012, according to the official website of Kims Martial Arts School in Avon, Ohio.
    Bears general manager Phil Emery worked with the Chiefs as director of college scouting from 2009 to 2011.
    In addition to Cleveland and Kansas City, Kim has worked with the Dallas Cowboys (1998), Miami Dolphins (2001-'06), Green Bay Packers (2005), Denver Broncos (2007), Buffalo Bills (2009) and New York Giants (2010).
    In each stop on Kim's tour, he has been labeled a "pass rush specialist." The Bears' 31 sacks in 2013 tied for fewest in the NFL.

    Anything that helps the hand fighting in the trench war is good in my book. Sounds like he's got a good track record.

    At least they are doing something even if it is a little unconventional. We can't get any worse at the pass rush.

    I love the cross training concepts. The damn CBA prevents this (or anything else) from being truly useful as an offseason program. Players can come in individually on their own, but I'd want everyone in on the action!
