Even Bruce Willis knows fights end up on the ground

source: GracieMag

Bruce Willis by Gage Skidmore Wikipedia

Ask a Gracie why Jiu-Jitsu is the most effective set of self-defense techniques in existence. The answer will invariably include: “Well, 90% of all fights end with two people rolling on the ground, whether they want to or not.”

Over the years, this observation has become all the more apparent, as evidenced by early UFC events and recent action flicks—where there’s always a smattering of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu to add realism to the scenes.

Such is the case with action-movie star from way back Bruce Willis in the movie “RED” (2010), where he has one of the most brutal and realistic fight scenes of his career, combining sambo and Jiu-Jitsu techniques, and culminating in an armbar ending.

 

What do you say, want to learn to finish Bruce Willis style and sharpen up your ground game so you won’t have to get hurt in real life?

Give the art a shot. Sign up at a Gracie Barra Knoxville.

Anthony Bourdain’s wife train Jiu Jitsu in Brazil

Bourdain FL015782

 

The world famous chef and TV show host, Anthony Bourdain, was in Rio de Janeiro for one of the episodes of his No Reservations “Final Tour” season.

After the traditional coconut water, walks on the beach, some “feijoada” and Açaí, Bourdain dropped by Gracie Barra’s headquarters.

Bourdain himself did not put the gi on, but his wife, Ottavia, who trains in NYC with Igor Gracie and is a white belt, decides to take on a challenge against a Brazilian blue belt.

Watch how she does and get a sense of the atmosphere at the hometown of Jiu-Jitsu.
