In this video, we see a BJJ brown belt from Korea challenging Case Bradford, an athletic guy who wrestled in high school. This happened in the park next to the beach in Santa Monica.
The brown belt was confident that he could submit him in under 2 minutes.
Case Bradford, the wrestler in the video, explained the situation:
“Earlier this summer i was challenged on Santa Monica beach to roll jiu jitsu by a random man visiting Los Angeles from South Korea, claiming to be a brown belt.
He offered me a $20 prize if i could survive a 2 minute roll without being choked or submitted. not only did i survive, but i turned the tables and choked him out seconds before the 2 minute mark. i trained up to a blue belt level in Gracie Jiu Jitsu 7 years ago and have not rolled since. Really fun rolling again! Love jiu jitsu i also wrestled in high school i know he did not tap to the choke, my figure four body lock must have been really tight. many viewers are commenting on his belt status. i have rolled against Purple and Brown belts before and never had any chance of winning… Seems like there are many variables that go into belt status worldwide. – Gi vs No-Gi – Competition vs Casual – Size and Athleticism play a role as well
Wrestlers are universally known as being some of the most hardcore athletes on earth. It takes a huge amount of hard work and perseverance to be successful in wrestling. The difference, between wrestling and BJJ, is that wrestlers work hard to take their opponents down and maintain a top position. This is why explosive power is considered to be an asset in wrestling, much more than in BJJ.”
