    Dirty fighting?

    So i am mainly a BJJ guy and I like the sport side. But recently I started looking at doing some striking and stand up stuff. I am curious what others can provide as far as arts or techniques to look in to. Maybe Ameridote? ;) (lol just kidding I know it is fake). Just curious what is out there in terms of quick techniques and stuff I could learn.

    It is easy to foresee the fact that most people here are going to tell you to look at Muay Thai or Western boxing, as these two striking arts have been proved effective and are widely available. Plus they fit well with BJJ in general

    True. But I feel like both don't have a reliance or focus (traditionally) on dirty strikes :)

    Muay Thai, Boxing and similar are good striking arts but learning the non sport aspects of BJJ is not going to hurt you.

    Dirty enough for ya?



    Serious standard bullshido response. If you're skilled at hitting a moving target that's trying to hit you back, it's up to you if you want to hit a clean or dirty target.

    Forget 'nads and throats, learn liver shot. Kick or uppercut. See Overeem v Lesnar, for example.

    I'd say MMA, or Muay Thai rather than strictly boxing. Working with the clinch, and knees is a better addition than learning to strike without it.

    I'm all for the self defence side of BJJ, however. It's a big part of our curriculum.

    Maybe Krav Maga is what you are looking for. Never taken it myself but from what I've been described there are plenty of "dirty attacks" etc.

    Your BJJ coach is probably the best person to show you where that stuff can fit into the base you're already developing. I know there's a million RBSD guys that insist that sport jiujitsu guys don't know anything about "dirty fighting", but that kind of knowledge is know by plenty of BJJ coaches. I'd say they're as knowledgeable about "dirty fighting" as the self defense guys who make dirty fighting their emphasis.

    Most folks consider strangling a person unconscious "dirty fighting". Add in snapping joints, and there you go.

    Personally, I would be more concerned with being able to defend strikes and close distance (as a grappler) than getting fancy with the fisticuffs, and how to cover yourself on the ground from strikes.
