  1. jiu jitsu originated in Japan so don't add those periods like he's stupid. Brazilian jiu jitsu originated in Brazil when a Japanese jiu jitsu practitioner spreaded the art to a Brazilian family.

  2. Isn't it important to control his left arm with your right arm until you cross your legs so he doesn't escape?

  3. @lukicarSK8 Never too late to learn Jiu Jitsu. Eddie Bravo didn't start till he was like 20 something.

  4. @MrBP3765 Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is what is used most commonly in mma today. IT is very effective even for smaller people fighting stronger opponents. IMO No-Gi BJJ is the best because on the street or in an mma bout you dont have a gi to hold

  5. i am practising Wing Chun, which is primarily a style where you want to stay on your feet…this style would be so perfect for me as a second style so i dont get owned if i go to the ground ;]

  6. Really glad to find a dude that ''sees'' Crusifix as a position,rather than a submission.I think there is a potentially gr8 thing to use in your game,i really love it and experimented a lot with it,and seen many ''easy'' submission from there.Gr8 vids m8,keep em comming 🙂

  7. i love the crucifix because people dont see it comming when they go for a single leg takedown
