Greystains was a town that grew straight out of the ground in Golden Valley. It was an old gold mining town that had been brought back to life by the great pioneer Nero Caesar Vieira. Life in Greystains in 1991 revolved around working at the factory, the local football team, and town gossip.
JiuGo Belle was the nerdiest kid in Greystains, far too sensitive and weird to ever be cool. Being his last year of school, JiuGo hoped things would get better but every day, the school bully Marcus Caesar Vieira, would punch JiuGo in the nose just to remind him he didn't fit in.
One day Marcus goes too far knocking JiuGo out, which gets him suspended. This puts a fire in JiuGo's heart to make a change and the school Librarian Ms. Michelle suggests he come to her self-defense class. This is where JiuGo finds Jiu-jitsu.
The next week, JiuGo is out on an adventure in the forest when he discovers an enlightened, 3 eyed frog, which he names Phibs. JiuGo adopts this strange creature who possesses hidden powers.
Around the same time on the other side of town Maro the youngest son of Death, defies his father and goes against the Reaper code. Maro instead of taking life, gives life back. The girl who was destined to die was JiuGo's older sister, Jess. The act of saving Jess's life passes some of Maro's powers to her.
Death is outraged and as a punishment he strips Maro of his Reaper powers and banishes him from the Shadow, leaving him exiled in Greystains. Through a strange twist of fate JiuGo and Maro meet forming an unlikely friendship.
They learn from each other and practice Jiu-jitsu together. This helps JiuGo to overcome his fears and doubts while helping Maro become more human. When Marcus's suspension is finished, he returns to school out for revenge, that's when The Power of Jiu-jitsu is revealed.
