Anyone ever used BJJ in a streetfight?
First off, has anyone here ever used BJJ in a streetfight? Everyone says that you don't want to go the ground in a street fight (it is obviously dangerous). Usually a fight is over quick, and whoever lands the first bomb would win typically, right? I would also assume that the person you are fighting is not a person with BJJ or other grappling training.
I have been thinking about this lately. Exactly how would BJJ used in a streetfight play out?
And would you just try and get a choke or something on the guy standing up (like say against a wall), or would you actually try and take the guy down, and apply a submission from there?
I think my brother double legged a guy onto someone's car once.
I've used a standing arm in guillotine to control a guy and kick him out of a bar.
Is there somr reason you think BJJ would all of a sudden be useless on the street or were you just looking for examples?
If I'm not mistaken, Osirus tooled some Dildo in a street fight once!
Nope. Everyone knows that using BJJ off the padded mats at the school causes you to instantly explode into a flaming pile of entrails and goop. Take my word for it, DO NOT TRY AND TEST THIS YOURSELF!
Since when does grappling = going to the ground?
The only real 'street fight' I was ever involved in was putting a rear naked choke on some dude that was beating up a bouncer.
Yes, hur hurrrr, I saved the bouncer.
You had to be there to understand the situation.
BJJ is completely useless in a street fight. This is the reason you never see anybody use BJJ or grappling in any realistic fight movie. Everyone knows you use drunken monkey fu to take on multiple opponents. Ask Jackie Chan.
Chain punches >>>>>> Toe hold
Dont mess with jackie he's half a loaf of kung fu!

If it's multiple opponents then obviously you'll need to abandon your BJJ and use something like taichi, wang chun or kempo.
Watch last season of TUF for an example of BJJ in a street fight. It showed the ups and downs of ground fighting on various terrain.
Upside: He could have broken the striker's arm
Downside: His skull kissed a lot of cement (but it didn't stop him)
