    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    Is there a competent self defense system?

    I do BJJ at a local school, but I've been out for a month or so due to a back injury. While watching my library of grappling videos, I thought it would be nice to get some street self defense videos. To my not-so-much surprise, I've found a **** storm of crap, crap, and more TMA and crap.

    What I'm looking for is a time tested and viable means of defense/offense with guns/knives and street H2H/preemptive strikes and such. Please help me wade through all the **** out there and find a decent base of information for these scenarios.

    The street argument is retarded. BJJ is so much overkill for the street that its ridiculous. Unless you're the idiot that picks a fight with the high school wrestling team, barring knife or gun play, the opponent shouldn't make it past double leg + ground and pound - Osiris

    Seriously though,
    http://www.amazon.com/Brazilian-Jiu-...9071587&sr=1-1

    I thumbed through this at the local Chapters once. It wasn't bad. It had a lot of non-sport type applications for BJJ moves, with a healthy dose not-fucking-retarded thrown in.

    Get ready because I'm about to give you the 100% guaranteed best street tested self defense techniques ever created. Are you ready?
    Ok, here we go!

    1. Pay Attention to your surroundings. Are you shuffling along the sidewalk listening to your iPod and staring at your shoes? Don't complain to me if you get jacked.
    2. Avoid dangerous areas. Kicked out of the bar at 3am have you stumbled down a deserted alley in downtown Atlanta? Your Kung Fu can not help you now.
    3. Travel in Packs. Seriously, bring some friends out with you. No mugger wants to try to rob 8 people at the same time. It's just not practical to carry all of that loot.
    4. Do not flash portable wealth at poor people in bad neighborhoods. For instance, stop paying for your pack of cigarettes at the ghetto convenience store with the 1st 50 in a roll. It makes the crackheads drool.

    So, assuming that you and your 3 friends are paying attention as you walk down the well lit street with your wallet full of 10s in a reasonable part of town and a burly teenager leaps from the bushes and pulls a knife on you, what should you do?
    Drop your wallet on the ground and when he picks it up, run.

    Now, if for SOME REASON this advice is not sufficient to keep you from getting shanked or shived or whatever then I suggest you try to suck up to the prison guards or the local warlord for some protection, because nothing we can do will help you.

    I've always been a big fan of Mark "Animal" MacYoung. Any of his stuff should be a good place to start. Who else would include cats on a list of household items that can be turned into improvised weapons?
