A European man showed up at a Gracie CTC in Osaka, Japan recently and made a unique request – he needed his arrogance in check. We kid you not!
In the short discussion beforehand he reveals that he’s an experienced boxer and questions whether or not jiu-jitsu would work on him if he were throwing punches.
Ty Bess, the local instructor there, accepts the challenge. Twice. You can watch what ensued below:
European guy shows up at our Certified Training Center in Osaka, Japan. After his first Gracie Combatives class, he reveals that he’s an experienced boxer and questions whether or not jiu-jitsu would work on him if he were throwing punches. One of the instructors, Ty Bess accepts the challenge…twice. After 25 years of UFC you wouldn’t expect these people to exist anymore, but they do, and the reaction is always the same: After the first loss, let me try that again. After the second loss, where to I sign up?
