Sometimes BJJ can be used for Self-Defense

Posted on Updated on

Jiujitsu365: I am not practicing BJJ for self defense purposes. Therefore, I sometimes forget that many people do learn it as a tool to defend themselves. Or to at least feel confident. I have recently been watching a number of videos on iTunes produced by the New York BJJ Academy operated by Marcos Santos.  

While searching for more of their videos on YouTube I ran accross this video “Marcos Santos Women’s Self Defense Demonstration.” It’s pretty interesting and he goes from the lowest belt to highest belt.  The last  woman did something totally unexpected, which is why I am highlighting this vid.
