George St. Pierre And Roger Gracie Rolling Jiu-Jitsu? Yes please!

 

 



 

Here is some very rare behind the scenes footage of the GOAT in MMA George St. Pierre training wrestling and Jiujitsu with the GOAT of BJJ Roger Gracie. This behind the scenes footage was filmed a few years ago in London at Roger Gracie Academy before GSP’s Welterweight Title fight against Nick Diaz.

It was amazing to see the 2 best guys in separate sports coming together to train wrestling and Jiujitsu to help each other get ready for their separate fights.

Roger Gracie is a 14x World Champion and is also the Grandson of jiu-jitsu founder Carlos Gracie and an inductee in the IBJJF Hall of Fame. He is also an ADCC Champion in 2005.

George St. Pierre is a former UFC Welterweight and Middleweight Champion with victories over BJ Penn, Matt Hughes, Michael Bisping, Thiago Alves, Jon Fitch, Jake Shields, Carlos Condit, Jonny Hendricks, Matt Serra, Josh Koscheck and Dan Hardy.

The list goes on.

Both Fighters have now retired and cemented their legacies as the best to ever do it in their separate sports.

Submissions from Bad Positions | Jiu-Jitsu Anti-Fundamentals

 

 



 

Just calm down…”Anti-Fundamentals” is just a way of saying these violate a lot of fundamental principles we are taught as rules about positions and submissions. These are definitely not go-to subs and they are inherently dangerous, but they are also very sneaky and unexpected. These also make some great Hail Marys for when you’re losing or have lost position and you are desperate. Hope you like them!

Royce Gracie Vs Kung Fun Master [Throwback]

 

 



 

Old school footage from back when the Gracie family was lockstep into bringing BJJ to the United States.

For those that don’t know there was basically an open invitation to early Gracie gym, where if you thought you were a better martial artist, you could come and test it out vs Jiu-Jitsu.

It rarely, if ever, went well for the non BJJ guy.

Ground Fighting is Statistically Safer on the Street, And We Can Prove It.

 

Written by Louis Joseph Martin III

There’s a ton of anecdotal stories already suggesting that ground fighting is an essential component of self defense, but there are still a number of holdouts. People that either insist grappling is either unlikely to happen or unwise to specialize in. On a Saturday afternoon, I posed this question to The Martial Arts Community of Facebook.

 



 

 

Nearly 21% saying “no” is a pretty large percentage. And while this poll is far from scientific, I have a feeling that if we scaled the sample size up the percentages would hold. It’s an age old argument, how important ground fighting is in self defense training. These days, the question of whether or not it occurs in “the street” is more or less settled. The argument is shifting now to just how important studying grappling is.

At High Percentage, we don’t trust people. We trust data. So for the past few weeks, we watched 200 street fights and recorded several data points about ground fighting. Here’s the main questions we asked:

Did one or both participants engage in fighting on the ground?

Did the fight intentionally or unintentionally go to the ground? (ie, was it the result of a clear takedown attempt, and not a knockdown or stumble)

If the fight was intentionally grounded, what was the outcome for the participant who took it to the ground?

Were there strikes landed on the ground?

Were the grounded fighters able to return to a standing position?

    LIMITATIONS

As usual, street fights can get crazy, particularly when they escalate into melees with multiple small fights happening to several participants attacking one. Our biggest limitation was parsing these out in to separate fights when possible. Sometimes it wasn’t.

A smaller limitation was that it was sometimes hard to tell when takedowns were intentional or not. But for the most part, we were able to come to consensus each time.

In the end, some of the questions we asked we’re simply indeterminable. In these cases, we marked them as such.

With all that out of the way, here were our major takeaways from the data.

 

SEVEN OUT OF TEN FIGHTS WHEN TO THE GROUND, NINE OUT OF TEN FOR WOMEN.

 

 

73% of fights went to the ground, a clear majority. Fights involving two females were even higher, many because of women’s propensity to clinch. Too many factors favored the ground. Frantic movements off balanced people. Changes in terrain as simple as stepping off a curb prompted falls. And of course, taking shots to the head would often drop participants. But those weren’t even the leading reason for why fights went down.

 

OVER HALF OF THE FIGHTS WENT TO THE GROUND PURPOSELY.

 

55% of takedowns were marked as intentional. Sometimes this would be a participant with clear wrestling, judo, etc experience. Other times, there wasn’t nearly as much skill involved.

Either way, it’s clear that more and more people are intentionally taking fights to the ground, not accidentally finding themselves there.

People who took the fight to the ground on purpose tended to win, or at least not lose.

 

 

Less than 2% of participants who took the fight to the ground went on to get knocked out or incapacitated, which says a lot. By and large, fighters who “scored” takedowns went on to defeat their opponents 39% of the time.

About half the time (46%), the fight had no clear outcome. This isn’t to say no one got hurt, but no one was so hurt they were incapacitated, which is good.

 

When fights go to the ground, they tend to stay there.

58% of the fights that went to the ground, stayed there for the duration. Typically, the top fighter would immediately throw strikes (79% of fights involved strikes on the ground.) and the bottom fighter would be overwhelmed. In the cases where participants were able to stand back up, 57% returned to the ground within seconds. Bottom line: if you go down, you’re staying down.

Fights that go to the ground have less violent outcomes for both participants.

45% of fights that remained on the feet resulted in a knockout. That number dropped to 12% if the fight went to the ground. In fact, 58% of all ground fights ended with no clear resolution, aka no serious injuries. Fights that stayed standing ended indecisively only 43% of the time.

It’s important to note that these numbers go both ways. Even participants who “lost” fights on the ground were less likely to lose via knockout.

Bottom Line

It’s no secret that we are a jiu-jitsu website. At the same time, we’re not searching for conclusions that always validate our beliefs. We go where the data goes. Right now, it’s very clearly telling us a story. Ground fighting is a reality, and people that employ grappling skills tend to perform better and walk away in better shape.

That being said, we recorded many fights where grounded participants were brutally attacked by third parties. Other fights involved dangerous weapons. These are the harsh realities of self defense that should give everyone pause in a real fight. In the split seconds we have before we must make decisions. Go for a takedown or stay standing. There’s no right answer, we just have to play the odds.

Why Jiu-Jitsu Is The Best Martial Arts For Women

 

 



 

A competitive female kickboxer of 10+ years sits down with Rener Gracie to discuss her newly found love of BJJ.

She relates that kickboxing is weight based and might not prove useful against a bigger, stronger attacker.

There is also the element of the enemy losing by not being able to defeat the Jiu-Jitsu practitioner.

Our not losing, is in fact a method of winning!
