Complete Jiu Jitsu.

Saturday, July 24th, 2010

So to follow the last post of a great demonstration of Jiu Jitsu by Masters Rickson and Royler Gracie, which included self defenses as well sparring (or rolling), I came across a small article on that tied in extremely well with it. In the article Master Rickson states that “competition Jiu Jitsu represents only 30% of real Jiu Jitsu.” You can read the article here.

Then, low and behold, this video pops up on YouTube, which I came across on one of my Franco Behring teammate’s Facebook page. In it you will find the likes of Grand Master’s Helio Gracie, Carlos Gracie & Joao Alberto Barreto as well as Master Carlson Gracie & Sensei George Mehdi. (sorry if I got any of those titles wrong. Ousssss.) In their demonstration, which was to get Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu sanctioned by one of the most important presidents in Brazil’s history: Getúlio Vargas, they show the compete realm of jiu jitsu which Master Rickson talks about. Please watch and enjoy this video.

Be sure to look around while you’re there. There are some great articles, videos & photos as well as events, news & results sections. Definitely one to bookmark and come back too.

See you on the mats. Oussssssssss!
