Does BJJ Work In The Streets?

 

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.

Sport Jiu-Jitsu, Street Jiu-Jitsu, And Why You Want Both.

 

There seem to be two general types of BJJ academies in existence, meaning every academy will fall under one (or both) of these umbrellas. The two types are Self-Defense based academies and Sport based academies.

What are the differences? Which one is right for you?

More often than not BJJ practitioners train in the traditional kimono or gi. Some wonder how wearing that uniform will help in a street clothes situation.

Sport Jiu-Jitsu will help you to develop the body awareness and coordination necessary to protect yourself in a self-defense situation, and you will certainly learn enough submissions to find a way to end the fight if necessary.

Self-Defense Jiu-Jitsu will also have an emphasis on punches and kicks (delivering and blocking) whereas you will have 0 emphasis on strikes in a sport setting.

If you are looking to BJJ for self-defense reasons, learning the self-defense techniques and drills in BJJ will serve your interests best. In this type of curriculum, you’ll learn how to deal with strikes and you’ll learn to escape and counter the most common “bar style” holds.

As you learn more self-defense BJJ, you’ll see that most of these moves are responses for your opponent’s offensive actions. Over time the mind will crave grappling with people who also know what they are doing, not just the local drunk buffoon. This is where more of a sport Jiu-Jitsu environment comes into play.

Many BJJ students learn the self-defense applications of BJJ early-on in their careers and look to sport BJJ for continued enjoyment. In sport BJJ, the problems are more complex, and thus more challenging, because your opponent knows not to hang on to a headlock when you are transitioning into technical mount. This makes BJJ much more fun in the long run, and with the self-defense foundation already established, your advanced knowledge of positioning, leverage, and timing will only make your self-defense skills sharper and more effective.

How To Avoid Getting Sucker Punched | Jiu-Jitsu Self-Defense

 

By definition, a “sucker punch” is one without warning, or at least without obvious warning. This video discusses not only technical considerations, but also some pre-fight cues to possibly observe preceding violent action by an aggressor.

It is always best to avoid or diffuse a situation before it becomes violent if possible. However, when talking your way out or avoiding all together isn’t an option, it is important to have a means of physically protecting yourself.

Is Sport Jiu-Jitsu BAD For Self-Defense?

 

Usually a BJJ practitioner finds themselves inclining toward the sport aspect of Jiu-Jitsu while others lean toward self-defense. It all depends on what you want to get out of Jiu-Jitsu.

However, could practicing Jiu-Jitsu for sport actually be a hindrance to self-defense?

Female Bartender Chokes Out Man Who Groped Her

 

A female bartender in Arizona fell victim to an occurrence all too familiar to many women around the world: the unwelcome touch of a disrespectful man.

Krystal Olsen, 32, was bartending in Arizona during a popular weekend when she was accosted by a local man who had been ordering drinks, according to the Daily Mail. The man then reached up Olsen’s skirt and grabbed her rear end, which in addition to the act being assault, it made Olsen quite mad.

It’s what she did next that ended up going viral. Olsen put the man in a chokehold and dragged him out of the bar by herself, making sure that not only was the man removed, but it was Olsen herself doing the evicting.

But as if the man felt he hadn’t done enough damage, he also slammed Olsen up against a wall during the altercation. With the help of the bar’s security team, Olsen subdued the man and called the police.

The man was apparently upset at the way things turned out and began crying when he realized he was likely heading to jail.

Olsen posted a picture of his crying face to her personal Twitter account with the following caption: “This guy grabbed my a**, I dragged him out in a chokehold, he slammed me into a wall. And he is crying like a b**** when he got arrested.”

The post, particularly the photo, quickly went viral. Many women offered their condolences and shared experiences of their own with overzealous and predatory men.

Olsen, who is originally from New York, described how the security team was slightly amused at the tough East Coast nature of Olsen, chuckling at the fact that she “went all New York on his a**.”

Several women commended Olsen for matching the man’s aggressiveness with a physical response of her own.

“If more men got their a**** beat for for harassing/assaulting women they’d learn quickly that a woman’s body belongs to no one but herself,” wrote one commenter, quoting Olsen’s tweet.

“I have three daughters,” wrote one concerned parent. “I hope they do the same.”

“You are awesome and I want my daughter to grow up to be just like you,” offered another user. Many sentiments regarding Olsen’s incident were overwhelmingly supportive.

Some people thought Olsen’s actions were a bit severe, but others reminded them of the severity of sexual assault and the right to defend oneself in the event of a physical altercation.

Olsen was unharmed after the incident, but the man certainly found himself in a world of hurt.
