Tried and tested, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu was originally developed to be an effective form of self defence because every fight ends up on the ground, and if you can’t fight on the ground then you’re going to have a bad time. When I first looked into doing BJJ, it was mainly for fitness and self defence, like a lot of people. I spent my time finding out if this was the right sport for me, so during my research about the sport, I decided to find out how effective it was in a self defence format.
Personally I find fight videos a bit weird, in fact when I watch one I can feel my heart pounding and have a sense of nervousness that would come if I was actually in the altercation myself.
Anyway, here are some of the best BJJ fights i’ve found.
Firstly, everyone loves the cheeseburger guy!
Nice back take in this street fight
The classic Pride backstage fight
While perfecting their art the Gracies would invite other martial artists to fight them to see which martial art was the best. Needless to say BJJ won. Every. Single Time.
However, if you’re looking for the best street fights, look no further than Hawaii. These guys take it to another level when it comes to BJJ fights in the street.
