Big Boys – 1 vs 1 Street Fight


2 Big Boys go one vs one in a street fight. The fight is your typical slug-fest. But, this is a perfect example of why combat jiu-jitsu would work in this situation, even from a standing combat jiu-jitsu standpoint. There a many opportunities for either opponent to have easily taken the back of the other opponent, there was a BEAUTIFUL opportunity for a standing arm lock (seen in our Free Warrior Combatives 5-Day Course).

The video also shows the effectiveness of a good stiff jab. You’ll notice that this was the FIRST punch, out of many thrown that was actually effective in creating openings and finishing the fight.
