Eddie Bravo vs. Angry Guy

Posted on Updated on

A guy drives all the way down from Santa Barbara and there are only four competitors. He gets pissed. He takes a look Eddie, deems him inferior, gets angrier and demands his money back. Eddie B. convinces him to grapple and the match is on.

    No-gi grappling has actually been around for quite a long time. Catch wrestlers like Frank Gotch and Martin “Farmer” Burns weren’t wearing gis while they were submitting opponents in the late 1800s. And they weren’t the first.The 1914 match between American catch wrestler Ad Santel and 5th-degree judo black belt Tokugoro Ito was an early gi vs. no-gi showdown.Nice site, by the way. It looks like there’s enough on there to keep me busy for years.

    Yes, you are correct. Egyptians, Indians, Angolans, Malians, Chinese etc., all practiced wrestling with locks and wrestling without. So BJJ is definitely not new, per se. I’ve read the autobiographies and bios of quite a few catch wrestlers and I don’t think they are given their due acknowledgment.
