Here is a way I have found helpful in explaining and illustrating some basic guard types to students. There are so many guards and ways to use them in Jiu-Jitsu that I can’t even imagine how long a comprehensive list would take. But this video outlines some very common ones that I think practitioners should familiarize themselves with.
Back in the day, Royler Gracie was one of the Gracie family’s most fierce competitors. Unafraid to test himself against all challenges, Royler would often fight in the open class to evaluate his jiu-jitsu against others. Normally competing at 154 lbs in this main event super fight of the Copa Pele event, Royler squares off against the very tough and much heavier opponent, Leo Dalla. Royler completely dominated Dalla, who normally competed in the super pesado division, demonstrating to the world how potent the Gracie Family’s style of jiu-jitsu was in sport jiu-jitsu.
BJJ is a brilliant combat sport, yet often times the question is raised whether it works on the street. I sought out to find the answer while consulting with major BJJ and self defense experts, including Matt Thornton, Bruno Orozco and Paul Sharp. What answer I found in asking if BJJ works in the street, you will find in this video.
