    OP, try Googling "Gracie+Vale Tudo in Brazil" to see how this question was answered before you were born.

    I have also used BJJ in altercations (RNC and once a triangle when I got knocked on my ass), but I have used wrestling takedowns far more often.

    I would totally try not to go to the ground if I was wearing a nice suit. I'd also try not to get punched. Or kicked. Or get in any kind of fight at all.

    Crazy as that sounds.

    Let's see, I've=
    Guillotine choked a guy 4 years ago,
    Hip thrown many
    RNC almost as many people
    Double legged 2 or 3
    Sprawled a few times
    All in real life fights
    Since BJJ didn't teach me those techniques I'd have to say no, I've never used BJJ on the street.

    -Dumbass question.

    Omega just hasn't figured out that all grappling is BJJ yet. Its ok hes kind of slow eventually he will get it.

    I once hugged a guy who was angry at me, on the street!

    I'm pretty sure that counts.

    Never trained BJJ but I've used "crapling" to great effect on several occasions.

    By that measure, someone who actually knows how to fight should do OK...

    How is it I have zero BJJ Training other than watching UFC on VHS, but I still know a simple 3 step process to making sure BJJ works in "da street":

    Step 1: Do Armbar.

    Step 2: Pull hard.

    Step 3: Ignore tap.

    Again...who other than the most clueless of people thinks judo or BJJ aren't MORE dangerous on asphalt or cement than padded mats?

    Certain techniques, Yes, mostly work related.
