True Words from Champions
“Competition Jiu-Jitsu represents only 30% of real Jiu-Jitsu. Without the other 70%, which includes standup self-defence, defensive striking and clinching skills and an effective vale-tudo guard, practitioners cannot develop the confidence to walk the streets knowing they can survive a possible confrontation.”
– Rickson Gracie
Why does BJJ work so well?
“When we go to the ground, you are in my world. The ground is the ocean, I am the shark, and most people don’t even know how to swim.”
– RCJ Machado
