Rickson Gracie: Modern BJJ Black Belts Remind Me of Karate Practitioners Clueless of Jiu-Jitsu

Rickson Gracie’s opinion on modern Jiu Jitsu: “In the past, when we arrived in the US, we were teaching Jiu-Jitsu to Karate black belts, who at the time felt like they knew everything. When they got exposed to real Jiu-Jitsu, they would say that they lost 20 years of their lives doing Karate, and now they realized what the real thing is. So somehow when I go to a (BJJ) seminar these days, I get the same impression from Jiu-Jitsu black belts. They’re like “Wow, I never taught that this existed in Jiu-Jitsu”. If we don’t do something very soon, Jiu-Jitsu will lose its fight-identity.” Use code “FIRST15” for 15 OFF Check also: Rickson Gracie: Rule Number One for BJJ Students Rickson’s Invisible Jiu-Jitsu & 5 most effective techniques Karate Guy challenged BJJ Guy to a Bare Hands fight Vinny Magalhaes disputes Rickson’s 400-0 Record … Continue reading Rickson Gracie: Modern BJJ Black Belts Remind Me of Karate Practitioners Clueless of Jiu-Jitsu
