Rambling analysis of my addiction to Brazilian jiu jitsu, with occasional political rants and musings on culture, sociology, food, love..
Very nice, I approve. :)
From a sport perspective I say, "Very nice." From a self defense perspective, I just shudder. What a stupid, stupid, stupid thing to learn to do.
Goodness gracious, I can't imagine anyone, in a self-defense situation, even keeping a closed guard around an assailant who stood up in the guard.I'm not studying jits for self-defense, more for sport. I recognize some of the beneficial aspects of jits for different purposes, but primarily I'm into it for competitive purposes. :)Welcome to the blog, Viro!
I now routinely walk around crouched down like a crab (to fend off takedowns) with my arms pulled in like T-Rex (to fend off arm bars) even at Target. And oh yeah, you're safer if you limit clothing options to tee shirts and shorts. Not completely safe because of that no gi thing, but at least a little safer.:-)
