A question came up on a recent Instagram Live Q&A I did about a streetfight video in which a ‘boxer’ beat up a ‘jiu-jitsu guy’.
This was a great entry point into a really interesting discussion about the street applicability of BJJ, the importance of cross training in today’s martial arts environment, and specific drills BJJ guys should be doing if they want their art to be effective on the street.
I ranted about these topics in episode 241 of my podcast (The Strenuous Life Podcast) .
