Jiu jitsu is all about the little guy defeating the big guy but nobody can turn away when a 250 lbs bodybuilder/powerlifting champion starts training in the academy…
In the past, there have been many instances where strength athletes, whether bodybuilders or powerlifters, have tried training Jiu-Jitsu and have rolled with the instructor to test themselves:
Another one that comes to mind was when a BJJ practitioner and a bodybuilder tested each other in a specific strength competition:
Ronnie Walker is a former champion bodybuilder who also happens to be a competition blue belt in BJJ.
He decided to try rolling with black belt BJJ world champion Mahamed Aly who is also a physical specimen.
