Vols offensive linemen RS Senior Dallas Thomas, junior Ja'Wuan James and freshman defensive back Daniel Gray are all taking part in a martial arts class at the University of Tennessee this fall.

Thomas talked James and Gray into taking the class after hearing about it from other teammates.

According to the class instructor Lance England, "I couldn't ask for better students, they are all great guys, every one of them. I have never had a problem with one of them."

James says that taking the class has helped him on the field and that England refers to football a lot while instructing as it relates to discipline, foot work and the amount of practice needed.

One downfall? The size of Thomas and James means that they aren't able to wear the traditional gi during class periods.
