Guy tried to rob jiu jitsu student's cell phone in Brazil
A poor guy tried to rob a jiu jitsu student's cell phone inside a bus in Goiânia/Brazil. The student got him in a standing choke untill the bus driver could stop at a police station so the cops could arrest the thug.

The cop interview goes something like "the police recomends that the victim never reacts because it can go wrong and the thief is frequently accompanied by another one. Fortunately there was a martial arts fighter inside the bus that was able to notice the attemp and render the robber".
The robber man is clueless about what to do here, and definetely he didn't see it coming, which gave the jj guy the upper hand in the situation. And it looks like one can adapt jj technics for self defense depending on the situation.
