Does BJJ Work in the Street • Martial Arts Journey

BJJ is a brilliant combat sport, yet often times the question is raised whether it works on the street. I sought out to find the answer while consulting with major BJJ and self defense experts, including Matt Thornton, Bruno Orozco and Paul Sharp. What answer I found in asking if BJJ works in the street, you will find in this video.

Second interview with Bruno Orozco -

I personally fell in love with BJJ very quickly. I can easily see why the hype exists up to this day, of people loving it so much, that quite a few announce it as the best martial art in the world. After all, Royce Gracie won the first UFC championship mainly relying on his Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, and BJJ is a key component in UFC and MMA up to this day. I personally experienced as well, how powerful BJJ is when rolling with a more experienced practitioner. Martial artists who trained without pressure testing and sparring, even for years, can only compare their techniques mainly on a theoretical level, in a never ending debate. In BJJ, if you are not as good as your rolling partner - you will see that as bright as day very quickly, by being submitted multiple times. The effectiveness of its techniques and training methods are undeniable in its own realm. Yet the question is, is it as good for self defense as it is in combat sports?

Having personally practiced one of the least effective martial arts for more than a decade without questioning it enough, believing that it is effective for self defense, when I woke up to the truth, I decided I will not want to fall into the same hole twice, and that before I devote myself to another practice, I will first thoroughly question it. And what better way is to do that, than to find answer by relying on the best experts of their fields.

Hi, my name is Rokas and in this Martial Arts Journey video, I will share what I discovered with the help of self defense and BJJ experts on whether BJJ works in the street.

The question first came to me when I started realizing that martial arts and self defense are two separate worlds. I still had a lurking question on where combat sports are found in between this scale, yet first of all I decided to find the gap between the former two. To find this answer, I interviewed Bruno Orozco, a self defense expert with years of experience based in Mexico, who also has foundation in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. During our talk Jiu Jitsu naturally came into our conversation. Bruno said: “A lot of brazilian jiu jitsu practitioners say it’s the best martial art in the world. Let’s say it’s the best martial art in the world. Well, self defense and the best martial art is not the same. For example, if I grab a knife and I know how to use it and I attack a brazilian jiu jitsu guy, I kill him.”.

To me that sounded like a fair point. The Brazilian Jiu Jitsu that I’ve been exposed to did not teach knife defense. Personally, during my BJJ training I even haven’t been introduced to defending against strikes. At that moment, having a desire to become adapt in self defense, BJJ was my first pick. The talk with Bruno made me question my decision. Yet relying only on one source for information will rarely reveal the whole truth about a subject. Luckily, my next talk was with a martial arts and BJJ legend Matt Thornton. For those who do not know Matt, he is one of the first american born BJJ practitioners to receive a black belt in this practice.

When I eventually asked the question of whether BJJ is enough for self defense, Matt replied: “The street vs sports debate is something I consider to be a fallacy. The same delivery system transcend over. It’s the same material and the same training method. [If someone focuses on competition] they are always working on jiu jitsu vs jiu jitsu. Let’s just say for the sake of argument, if while they are doing that, they never put the strikes in and all of a sudden they wind up in a fight and they might potentially put their body and their head in a position where they can take punches because they’re thinking more about tournament situation as opposed to an MMA situation. Having said all that, because of what we do in SBG is we focus more on the fundamentals, what we teach tends to transcend these different environments, because there’s very little change that has to be made.”

BJJ vs Boxing Street Fight!!! What Happens When There's NO Plan How to Fight

When you have NO PLAN HOW TO FIGHT in Self Defence or even in a Street Fight YOU PLAN to FAIL.

This week we examine a real BJJ vs Boxing street fight to compare the approaches to fighting.

Brazilian Jiu Jitsu (BJJ) is a great martial art not because many of the fighters in Mixed Martial Arts rely on this form of fighting, but because it has a comprehensive approach to fighting whether in self defence, mixed martial arts, or in a street fight.

Boxing is also a great practical fighting art that many people prefer to rely on in street fights. Even more so than BJJ. This makes sense since boxing is a striking art compared to Brazilian Jiu Jitsu.

Yet BJJ at it's core has a unique positional strategy that drives it's approach to fighting, and this is what makes it difficult to fight or defend against.

In BJJ, the idea is to close the space to your body, control your body in order to tire you out then ground and pound or choke you. There's a specific plan that every BJJ student knows and follows.

This differs from striking martial arts such as Boxing or even Wing Chun, as they function very differently to grappling styles.

This is a new series of how to fight analysis called FIGHT SCIENCE BREAKDOWN. We’ll be taking real footage and looking at the psychology behind the violence and how this affects your approach to self defence.
