MMA Fighter Uses BJJ Rear Naked Choke to Stop Robbery

Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu in action on the street

Brent Alvarez is a MMA fighter with a (2-2-0) record according to  But I think he had his best fight yet when he bagged a bad guy.  I always like to see BJJ in action.  This isn’t the first video I’ve seen of the Rear Naked Choke in action on the street.  I don’t think it will be the last.  Those of you who watch the MMA fights or practice Jiu-Jitsu know what he could have done to the guy once he had control.  He showed in my opinion what discipline BJJ teaches by not hurting the robber.  He also reiterated what I and other have said that Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu can be a gentle art.  He didn’t have to throw any punches or kicks.  He got to back control and neutralized any threat the thief could be to others or himself.  Well done, Brent!  Thank you for showing the world the power and effectiveness of BJJ while taking another criminal off the street.

Jiu-Jitsu is Life and Life is Jiu-Jitsu
