Video: Street Jiu-Jitsu vs. Sport Jiu-Jitsu

July 9, 2012

How street ready are you?

With so much debate and confusion surrounding the issue of street vs. sport jiu-jitsu, Ryron and Rener sit down for a very candid talk in which they explain the fundamental differences between the two. In a few very simple demonstrations, they make it very clear that "street jiu-jitsu" isn't defined by a set number of techniques, but rather the universal principles of distance management without which one stands little chance of defeating, let alone surviving, the aggressive onslaught of a larger opponent in a real fight. By no means, is this video meant to demean or discredit any jiu-jitsu instructors. Instead, it is meant to serve as a reminder to students and instructors everywhere of the true essence of jiu-jitsu and how it became the most respected martial art on the planet.
