“Stories of Jiu-Jitsu on the Street”

I’ve decided to start a new site dedicate to collecting stories of BJJ in action.  I hear so often about the conflict between sport and street BJJ.  All the masters of BJJ always emphasize the importance of why Helio Gracie created BJJ for self defense.  There are tons of sites out there that service the sports side. I don’t know of any specifically about Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu in practical use on the street or self defense.  Ok, I shouldn’t forget but for the most part you understand what I’m saying.

I got the domain and I need to start collecting some stories to offer for the initial launch.  Please send me your stories.  Fictions great but I want true life experiences.  I have one from a friend who was a bouncer.  I’m sure if you train BJJ you can come up with at least one first hand tale.

Please send them to me by replying to this post and I’ll post them at for everyone to read and as testament to what Helio Gracie wanted Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu to be.

Jiu-Jitsu is Life and Life is Jiu-Jitsu

  1. Hi, i found your blog and think it’s great! It’s kind like i wanted mine to be but have never managed it. You seem to have the same two things that take up much of your life, well now 3 actually. JiuJitsu, a new baby and .Net.

    I have a story of using real-life jiujitsu so if you are still interested in a story i can give you a real one to add.



    1. That would be great! Please put your story in a comment here and I will not post it here but save it for the launch of Thanks, Jason.
