Jiu Jitsu Competitor Gets Arm Brutally Broken In Tournament (Graphic)

 

Last weekend, competing at the Gracie invitational, this BJJ competitor neglected to tap when he should have. It is a difficult video to watch. GRAPHIC WARNING! Let this serve as a lesson to all white belts to tap early to avoid serious injuries.

 

 

Please be careful on the mats everyone. If you find yourself in a compromising situation, tap quickly! It is not worth the many months of recovery for an injury like this.

4 Fake Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Black Belts And How They Were Exposed

 

“Woe to ye oh false bearer of the blackest of belts in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu” – The Jiu Jitsu Bible Chapter 1, Verse 10.

 

I am only kidding about the Jiu Jitsu Bible thing. However it is no joke when someone falsely dons a BJJ Black Belt that they have not earned. The BJJ community is small and tight knit. It is virtually impossible to think that you can get away with being a fake black belt. Literally a million people will know about your falsity within a matter of a day or two.

 

Below we will share the stories of 4 fake BJJ Black Belts who were outed by the Jiu Jitsu community in 2015.

 

1. Let’s start with the latest. The BJJ Hour podcast guys outed this fellow just yesterday. His name is Mark McMahon. This gentleman was found to be a Gracie University Online Blue Belt. His Instagram page shewn him wearing his Blue Belt, than weeks later, he is a BJJ Professor.

2. A little over a month ago Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Brown Belt Mike Palladino exposes a man posing as a Black Belt in Marlboro, NY. His name is Jay Queiroz.

3. Earlier this summer Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Black Belt Ruben Alvarez confronts a person trying to pass as a Black Belt.

 

 

 

4. Early in 2015 Justin Farwell outed a Fake BJJ Black Belt working in a UFC gym.

 

From Justin Farwell: “I didn’t do any of this to be mean so please don’t think that. I was respectful as you can see. Here’s the deal… I know blackbelts and they all busted their asses for years and years to accomplish the rank of a Jiu Jitsu Black Belt. All my brothers that work so hard in the sport of Jiu Jitsu making sacrifices from there kids and families. I did this for all of you.”

 

 

 

 

Please, please, please never pretend to be a different belt rank then you are. Live your life with pride, dignity and honor and this will never be an issue! It is simply not worth it to be ostracized by such an active and genuine community!

 

Hope you enjoyed the post! Now go earn your belts!

Firas Zahabi Teaches How To Setup The Triangle From Closed Guard

 

“In Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu the Guard is the heart of the art. Most BJJ battles are won and lost during the Guard battle. If you are on top you need to pass if you are on bottom you need to sweep or submit. The transition to triangle is a key maneuver when it comes to being successful playing from the bottom.

 

In this video I cover key aspects for successfully transitioning from guard to triangle. Be sure to study this transition carefully and it will serve you well.” – Firas Zahabi

Ryan Hall was recently in Iceland training with UFC fighter Gunnar Nelson. During his visit he gave this great interview.

This is only speculation but if Ryan is currently training with UFC fighters, he very well could be the winner of this new season of The Ultimate Fighter. Let’s keep our fingers crossed!

New Street Fighter 5 Character Laura Specializes In Brazilian Jiu Jitsu

 

According to Michael Martin of IGN.com, Street Fighter 5 is reportedly getting an all-new Brazilian female character.

 

Japanese video game magazine Famitsu has posted images online of Laura performing various moves and grappling with Ryu. Based on the images and the types of strikes and holds she’s using, it appears her fighting style might be some form of Brazilian jiu-jitsu as opposed to the series’ other Brazilian mainstay Blanka, who practices his version of capoeira.

 

It does appear Laura might share some similarities with Blanka as she also appears to have some lighting-based attacks, including what appears to be some sort of projectile.

Clearly Laura practices No-Gi ((Ahem))

Caio Terra Sparring With Narration By Caio And His Opponent

 

I love these rolling videos with commentary. They really allow you to get into the mind of the practitioner to see what was going through their mind during particular instances.

 

In the new video below Caio Terra and the head of Island Top Team Vancouver, Robert Biernacki have a great sparring session with both Caio and Robert narrating us through. There are tons of leg lock attempts and sweet transitions that are hella fun to watch. Enjoy!
