Street Jiu-Jitsu vs. Sport Jiu-Jitsu

How street ready are you?

One-Stripe White Belt Gets into Street Fight!

John Ikuma is a one-stripe white belt in the Gracie Combatives program who hasn't trained for over 5 months. On Friday, March 24, his jiu-jitsu was put to the test when he intervened in a violent assault. The very next day, he returned to class and he broke down the entire incident for Rener as well as all the students in attendance at the 10am Gracie Combatives class. John managed the distance AND the damage. Amazing!
