Brazilian Jiu Jitsu tend to showcase their skillset on the mat however it’s not terribly rare that they apply the skill to every day situations. Generally speaking, BJJ is regarded as one of the most practical martial arts to use in real-life situations.
One of the perfect examples of this is the incident that happened in Dallas, Texas recently.
An unnamed fake merchandise seller was having a bad day at a Dallas’ Convenient Center. He was selling fake rare and unique cards at the Dallas Card Show, thinking everything will go smoothly. Unfortunately for him, he was caught selling fake cards to unsuspecting buyers. The police then approached the guy to apprehend him. They slapped a pair of cuffs on the perp.
However, a fairly stupid idea occurred to the guy’s during the arrest. He decided to run off from the police to a crowded area inside the building. Luckily, the police didn’t need to put more effort into catching the guy thanks to a Brazilian Jiu Jitsu practitioner who happened to be around.
