Article on BJJ 2.0 and Self Defense

I find it funny that the subtitle to this article on Science of Skill is “What is the world coming to?” because that’s what people I think have been saying in each previous generation since the dawn of time.

Anyway, the author points out some very common misconceptions about jiu jitsu and self defense, and offers his own opinions about them. One in particular is that there is no striking in jiu jitsu- make no mistake, there is definitely striking in jiu jitsu (in regards to self defense at least) it’s just something people typically don’t focus on.

What do you think? Check it out and let me know-otherwise, have a great day everyone!

    It’s a good article, but doesn’t really say anything new. I always knew that the “90% of fights end up on the ground” statistic was always a myth. No one ever sighted a proper study when mentioning that statistic.
