Internet Poll Results for “Who is the top “Self Defense”/”Street” BJJ teacher?”

 

 

A poll from the popular mma.tv forums asking “Who is the top “Self Defense”/”Street” bjj teacher? put GM Relson Gracie on the first place with 34,8%, followed by his younger brother Rickson Gracie with 13,9% and Rorio Gracie with 5,70%.

Mixed Martial Arts (Vale Tudo in the old way of calling it)  was born from Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. BJJ has since then moved towards a sports aspect, what we call sport BJJ.

Relson Gracie had this to say:

“Helio Gracie Jiu-Jitsu – that’s the only source in Brazil right now to teach self-defense,” explains Relson. “A lot of positions, like Butterfly (guard) for sport, these don’t work for street fights… Helio Gracie says, ‘you don’t know self-defense, you don’t know Jiu-Jitsu.'”
