life© breakfast cereal contains micro-transmitters that are controlling my mind. But, that's just me.
Check out this fine piece of traditional jiu jitsu propaganda. To which I sincerely reply, "Settle down, Beavis."
In all sincerity, there's probably a kernel of truth mixed in there with all the nuttiness. There is a degree of smugness that comes from the BJJ community when it comes to traditional martial arts. And, many of these more traditional martial arts can be effective for self defense purposes. Seriously though, you can practice your disarming skills all day long, but in a real situation, you'll probably just get shot or stabbed repeatedly (and me too). Hopefully, you'll suck it up and live to choke a fool dead ... using your Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu skills.
