    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    Jiu-Jitsu choreography

    I went to my first self defence Jiu-Jitsu session the other day (and yes I do wing chun blah blah get over it im still going to criticize).

    And I wanted to know if it was just the class or is all of it like this?

    They tried to convince me that to block a right hook, i should shoot my arm directly up in the air to block, then grab their arm, step round behind them and push them to the floor.

    Presuming I can avoid a hook hitting me by shoving my hand up in the air and not hiding my face, I should then grab them, take a few casual steps behind them as if they're going to be like "ok, I'll just wait here" and then attack back. What madness is this? Is this what all JiuJitsu is like? I heard it was one of the best martial arts for self defence? did I miss something? How is it acceptable to teach this nonsense?

    :fffuuu:

    Who told you that generic 'Jiu jitsu' was good for self defence? Most 'jiu jitsu' of the non-Brazilian variety is delusional man-dancing.

    You just criticized a move that is also demoed in the chun. That should answer your question.

    Yep you described my BJJ class to a T. For this technique to work though you have to act real casual when you step behind them or it won't work. Your trainer probably just didn't have you strolling casual enough if it seemed like it wouldn't work.

    By straight up in the air do you mean like this?


    Also, did the name of the school contain any of the following:
    - Freestyle;
    - Combat;
    - Street Defense;
    - Modern;
    - Real?

    That's how I block right hooks in sparring...except when I raise my hand, my opponent thinks I'm signaling for a break and then BLAM! I throw my counter left hook, followed by strategic apology. That is true ninjutsu.

    You did miss something.......
    To every move they teach you you must also add in some foom, foom, foom.
    Teh, Secret foom foom is hidden in the secret jits kata.
    Why bother with jiu jitsu when you already posses the l33t chun?

    To quote the master.

    Jiu jitsu... Bullshit
    Ti,ti,ti, Tiger claw FTW.

    I just remembered some ironing I have to do.

    Jiu-Jitsu{sic} is a generic term, not a specific style, school, or methodology.

    Much like the mighty chun lolololololololol

    And if you're training looked like this:

    Then don't go back. No, not all jujitsu is like this. Unfortunately, it is increasingly difficult to find good jujitsu schools though.
