He's right, you know.
He is right but Judo could be argued as technically a better option because you can throw people onto concrete and their heavy clothing or jackets will just make it easier.
I would say Judo plus boxing is scary for streets due to your balance, awareness and ability to launch people from the clinch. BJJ can make you kind of wobbly unless your highest level BJJ, those guys are pretty much wrestlers at that level.
In a 1 on 1 fight without weapons I would take BJJ over any other art. Just pull guard, transition straight to a submission or a better position. A blue belt in BJJ will normally wreck a non-elite Judoka.
Bjj guys are usually the ones that like to be thought of as fighters but dont like being punched in the face. Like a good 50 or 60 percent of them. Too pussy for thai.
BJJ was created by someone who was afraid to get punched in the face.. and raped
Whoa, pull guard in a street fight?
Please do not ever do that, you could end up getting really hurt or even killed.
A Blue belt would wreck a non-elite Judoka?
Not if they use their skills to keep the fight standing during a streetfight. How would the BJJ guy ever take down the Judoka?
Most top BJJ guys crosstrain in Judo and or wrestling for a reason.
why is that a bad thing? I was under the impression that going to the ground was only bad in a street fight if he had friends there to beat you while you were on the ground.
You implying banging the back of your head off the concrete?
Oh man where do I even start here?
First thing is that in a fight you always want to be on top. Top is the dominant position, fighting from guard is your backup plan in case you get out-wrestled. It is something that happens naturally, you NEVER should be there on purpose otherwise you really need to read what is written by the actual Gracies themselves, they always stress position before submission and would never train or fight for the street how they do for BJJ competition.
By purposely going to the bottom of your opponent, not only could you easily be bitten, eye gouged, head butted or elbowed in the face while you are trying to grab and hug your opponent while exposing your face with your hands down but once you get actually underneath your opponent, if you are on concrete, watch out because he could hurt your spine badly by just lifting and dropping you from a foot up a couple times.
Pulling guard in a streetfight is not an option period. Protect your face at all times and always fight for top position. Avoid the ground unless your opponent is gassing and you are sure that you can finish him by using a takedown and even then I recommend Judo throws over single legs in a streetfight any day.
Judo is better for the streets because it teaches you to throw your opponent into the submission finish.
Boxing and situational awareness is better.
I agree boxing is the best but boxing plus Judo or boxing plus wrestling or boxing plus BJJ is scary scary
