Hi everyone, I often see threads on here about BJJ and it "working" or "Not working" in a street fight situation... Well a little background on my little brother: 3/4 years ago started Gi Jiu Jitsu under Telles and Terere jiu jitsu, did it for 4 months 2 years ago started greco roman wrestling, and nogi, did it for 6 months at a MMA gym. In between we are fortunate enough to have a matted room in our house, so rolled occasionally when we were in london at the same time...we did little except very aggressive sparring... Anyway he was at university, minding his own business outside his halls of residence, when two larger men approached him, shouting "Whats the time you fucking pussy"...and then the larger guy got right in his face saying again "whats the time you pussy" My brother felt that these guys were looking to beat the shit out of someone, and he was in the wrong place at the wrong time. He double legged the guy onto the pavement, landing in side mount...applied a kimura, then stepped over his head to tighten it, the guy screamed in pain as his shoulder was about to be wrecked, and with the submission still applied, my brother asked for an apology, which the guy provided. My brother let him back up, and the attackers hurried off. The fight lasted not more than 20 seconds. My brother was lucky the other guy didnt stamp on his head, but he had no choice but to fight. This is proof to me, that even low levels of jiu jitsu can make an enormous difference in a street situation. I guess its a matter of believing in ones ability! My brother feels that the greco roman wrestling, and sparring jiu jitsu aggressively at home helped him win the fight.
