He was referring to the punching bag at 1:35. Log in to Reply rgoodsan May 23, 2013 I practice BJJ and am a blue belt. I know that there are a lot of guys out there that train mma. Those guys are the only ones that give me problems in a fight. Untrained guys dont really have much of a chance unless they are really big and athletic. So yeah…just because you train BJJ doesnt make you invincible. But it helps. Log in to Reply gcbies May 23, 2013 That’s why I’m with a foreign chick too!! They know how to treat men and work. Not all this entitlement BS that American women are taught from birth. We need many more women in this world like her. Forget about who thinks she hot enough to bang you worthless keyboard warriors, she is a confident, hard working, beautiful woman. I’m proud of her and so should you be… Log in to Reply JO May 24, 2013 I’ve never ever seen BJJ do shit in a street or bar situation, or any other martial art. Sure if you both go aside to have a challenge match, but that’s just an unsanctioned MMA match at that point. But that rarely happens outside the presence of Renzo or old cowboy movies. I used to bounce through college and have seen it all. Real street situations involve little technical fighting, mostly some person whacks another and things get broken up, both parties lock up and stalemate or rarely some poor bastard goes down hard from the first major action. The person who got violent first does the majority of the damage but no one really wins. There’s no ref. I did see a trained fighter (wrestling based, 3-4 amateur fights) get knocked out by a chair. That sucked for him, but it was good for me because I didn’t have to deal with trying to break up a fight involving a real fighter. You don’t have to be a bouncer though, just go on youtube and see how shit goes down. It’s all chaos, the guy who keeps his feet and gets out of there does okay, the guy who can box and run does okay but rarely do things last long. And any BJJ guy going to the ground is a fool, anyone on the ground gets kicked in the teeth from friends and other pissed off *******s. My best asset was being close to 300 pounds and situational awareness, vigilance, knowing which douche was going to start problems. They come in all types but they get easy to spot. Log in to Reply JO May 24, 2013 BTW I wasn’t trying to dis, but I hear a lot about how martial arts make you tough in the street/bar. But the chaos is so intense and it’s rarely a one on one thing. My friend did get choked out by a jitz guy at a bar. He was facing off with one guy and his friend came around and put my buddy to sleep. So see. It CAN WORK! Log in to Reply JO May 24, 2013 Pfft…they weren’t even talking about kicking butt in the vid, they were talking about confidence. Log in to Reply Azamat_bagatov May 24, 2013 Well I’m a 4 stripe white belt under Brazilian jiu jitsu and I’m pretty sure I can beat up most guys my weight or less. If you mouth off to me at a bar and I’ve been drinking then you might end up getting hurt. I’d have to weigh you first, of course.

At 6’4″ and 258 I could use my muay thai and stomp the **** out of someone or I could easily put someone on their back, pass guard and let them know that further resistance will end badly for them. My guess is the only BJJ you’ve ever done is with a video game controller. Log in to Reply Crocography May 24, 2013 Completely agree with “gcbies” — I wish there were more women like this. Confident really does go a long way to make one beautiful. Log in to Reply tallandsincere May 24, 2013 I really enjoyed that video 😛 Log in to Reply KungFuLowKick May 25, 2013 @Jo “I’ve never ever seen BJJ do s*** in a street or bar situation, or any other martial art.” What the hell are you talking about??I’ve been in situations where it helped me.And I saw other situations(on video and in reality)where it helped somebody else.I’m not saying Ive been in alot of fights outside a gym but I experienced some shitty moments who didn’t turn so bad because of my couple of years of training lightly.One time a guy sucker punched me in a bar.When he came for the second punch I already had my hands up and I was stepping away.Bouncers stopped it before anything else happened.I’m sure If I had never boxed,I would’ve turtled,turned around or froze like 90% of people who get hit and don’t train in a MA.Not to boast but some douche spit on my Chinese adopted sister because he’s a dumb skinhead and thought she was a Native.I put him to sleep with one punch even if he was supposed to be a tough guy and people were scared of him.And I’m not big 6ft 170.I also saw my friend who’s barely 150 and fights pro now take on alone 2 200+ pounds guys easily.He KOed one guy with a 1-2 and he took the other mounted him and beat the shit out of him.Don’t tell me a guy who doesn’t train in striking and grappling arts would do that.If by “street and bar fights” you mean alone vs 4+ big guys who know how to brawl,or a crazy brawl then nothing will help you unless you have a gun or you’re pretty crafty with a knife.But not all the street fights end up in brawls either.If you’re smart you get away from brawls and run as fast as you can if a group of guys want to beat you.Even then you’re martial art training will help you.
