BJJ: FACT OR FICTION? WATCH A VIDEO DUBUNKING BJJ AS BOGUS.


Yeah, grappler.  People are still attempting to do this.  I think they are the same whacky conspiracy theorists who think the government is controlling the weather and/or that the lunar landing was faked.  I'm not to keen on this kind of thing, although I am convinced my 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.

Jiu Jitsu.

  1. I find it kind of odd that the victims in these clips clearly are average Joe's, not knowing jiu jitsu.. it ends up almost an ad FOR bjj.

    Jiu jitsu is legit. I'd like to see the maker of this video in a closed room with Rickson Gracie.

  2. Clever cut & paste job.

    Funny how the maker of this video uses Wanderlei Silva & Remco Pardoel to show BJJ's "ineffectiveness", yet Wanderlei is a BJJ Black Belt and after Remco Pardoel fought Royce Gracie in UFC 2, he started training in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. Nice try, bud.

  5. The guy who made this is pretty clueless, actually. You can tell by the comments on his YouTube channel. He seems to think that JJJ is the only true martial art, quite literally.

    He's probably also convinced that girls turn him down because he intimidates them with his good looks and masculinity.

  8. gracie jiu jitsu is getting stale now that every fighter knows what to do. there's obviously no way bjj is gonna help you if you're getting stomped by 4 guys or whatever.
    gracie jiu jitsu isn't really evolving and i'd say pretty soon 10th planet will be the premier name in bjj because they're innovating new stuff that people arent familiar with unlike gracie bjj

  9. dude who made this video is pretty delusional and insecure about his style. he did have a few points, though those points have been been like a dead horse.... except for one thing that it showed that does bug me. hate how most BJJ Players have no takedowns whatsoever other than pulling guard or running straight at somebody in a clinch or a half-assed single or double. seeing alot more jits guys training in wrestling and judo though nowadays! honestly for the street, i feel like all you really need is wrestling and boxing. as for knife fighting, i'll leave that for israeli commandos and navy seals
