Mugger Used Jiu-Jitsu Rear Naked Choke to Steal Mobile Phone

Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is supposed to make people better. And sure enough it does improve the quality of one’s life along with some mental states. However it hardly imbues someone who never had a moral compass with one.

Jiu-Jitsu in the wrong hands can be a very dangerous thing…

This is a point which legendary coach John Danaher relied on in one of his earlier interviews :

 “A knife can be used to make a sandwich; a knife can be used to save somebody’s life—as you’re struggling to get out of a car, you can cut the seatbelt and escape—a knife can be used to serve justice, it can be used for murder. It can be used for the greatest things, the most mundane things, and the most terrible things. It’s morally neutral. It’s only as good as its owner. Jujitsu is exactly the same. Jujitsu doesn’t make you good, it doesn’t make you bad. It will just reinforce what you already are.

If you’re an a*%hole, it will make you a worse a&*hole. If you’re a good person, it will make you a better person.” He added, “I like to have my room arranged in such a way that the first and last thing I see every day—when I wake in the morning, when I go to sleep at night—are my blades next to me. They’re a daily reminder of what we do.” Finally, I dared to ask about his personal life, and he didn’t hesitate to answer: “When I try to get outside of jujitsu, it’s almost always done through sex, but I can’t really talk about that.”

This is what happened recently in Brazil where Jiu-Jitsu in the wrong hands was being used with malicious intent. Note that, when strangled, the victim is ordered to drop his cell phone on the ground, and the attacker appears to “end the aggression”:

Are you ready to defend yourself beyond the points and advantages of competition?
Brazilian jiu-jitsu was created as a complete martial art, so that any person, no matter the size would be able to protect him or herself against an aggressor in any environment.
