Has jiujitsu ever saved your life?

John Danaher, I believe, once told Graciemag that he could point to four clear times jiujitsu had saved his life. Of course, working as a bouncer, that's easy enough to imagine. 

But jiujitsu can save you in ways other than the obvious one. Rickson Gracie, for example, tells in his memoir of the time he lost his surfboard and had to swim for hours to get back to shore. Would he have made it without his skills developed by and for jiujitsu?

Do you have a story of being saved by jiujitsu? We'd love to hear it.
