    Interesting BJJ Article

    Below is a webpage that I ran across that states pretty bluntly that BJJ ONLY works in the ring. Personally I think the article is retarded as the guy seems to think that a bjj player would jump to guard on a knife wielding attacker. There are a bunch of misconceptions about bjj in this one.

    Hope this isn't a repost...but I wanted to pass along.

    He's trying to sell something.

    The marketing template used here--lots of bold statements, lots of bolded statements, the framed HTML boxes, denouncing well-known martial arts or artists, claims to be the ultimate in self-defense, overuse of words like "brutal", claims to association with military and law enforcement, links interspersed with the text, broad and unequivocal claims--is just that; a template and writing style meant to grab the weak-minded and inexperienced who want a quick, easy, simple solution. This template is a cookie-cutter way to make money on any garbage "martial arts" tape you want to make in three hours.

    Do not read it, it's a waste of time. Do not buy it, it's a waste of money.

    I don't disagree with alot of what he says, he just misses the point. It is like saying carrying a pistol into war is stupid because the other guy has tanks. Well yeah, duh. You bring your tanks and planes too, but in the end, when the other guy is outside of his tank without a pistol, you'll be glad you brought one.

    The only other thing is that he doesn't seem to really know any bjj players outside of the random ones the train for a month or two. He makes some stupid generalizations. But it is not the worst I have seen. He even says that against someone who is only a striker, bjj will win. I think he is just "butthurt" that his attendance has dropped.
    There is no cheating, there is only jiu-jitsu.

    The article is written by a one "Commander Nitro"...

    :bssign:

    In all seriousness, I think all true martial artists understand the need to be well rounded and capable through all the possible situations of a fight. Some arts are weak as hell when it comes to close quarters and grappling, others have very weak striking focus.

    This guy is just repeating some common sense crap and making generalizations and assumptions about BJJers. Of course the last place you want to be in a street fight is on the ground, even the Gracies will tell you that, Royce specifically stated that to my instructors at a seminar he gave last year. Fighting someone with a knife is always a losing proposition, because you WILL get cut. Etc etc...

    Bottom line, same conclusion reached. The guy who wrote this is either ignorant, he's trying to stir up **** and draw attention to himself and his school, or both.

    I don't know.

    Being hit 5 times in the face when performing a failed attempt at an armbar/triangle/hoodie-choke seems like good odds to me!

    Hilarious.

    Also, this guy's gym is maybe ten minutes from my house. I'd be happy to sit in on a class and give the Bullshido folk a re-cap of t3e d3ad1ly jiu jitsu he teaches.

    Really?

    So, the guard is the 'end-all' because it worked back at UFC 1-5 ?

    How is holding someone between your legs the 'end-all'? It isn't and every BJJ practitioner knows this.

    This guy is completely mischaracterizing BJJ to the point that I just puked all over my dog. (Sorry Sparky!).

    AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    OK.... random thoughts.

    The guard game is very important if you are female and trying to stop a rape attempt.

    When people talk about weapons defense or dealing with gang attack it is just silly. It's why Mr. Smith and Mr. Wesson got together. A hammerless .38 in the front pocket with your hand on it is the best gang attack defense... and the most effective.

    These "kill or be killed" "commando" systems are nothing new. They are all bullshido. Get a copy of "The Close Combat files of Col. Rex Applegate and you will see the very first "BS Board" which I used in my school as well.

    Nothing has changed... Barnum was right.
