When it all boils downs to martial arts, practicality is the most effective. Many techniques you may learn can be hard to apply on the street. Willie “Bam” Johnson presents Street Chin na. For those who are not aware of chin na, it means “to seize and capture” . Chin na emphasizes with joints locks and breaks which can be vital damage to the opponent. Master Johnson tends to always bring practicality in majority of videos and books also (The complete martial artist).
One of the baddest fighting scenes ever with m fav, Donnie Yen in Ip Man. For those who has never heard of the legendary martial artist, he was the instructor of the famous Bruce Lee. He was definitely a positive figure; a gentleman who fought not only for himself, but his people.
I have been doing tribute to primarily stand up practioners. This week’s tribute is to Helio Grace, the father of Brazilian Ju-Jitsu. He was the only 10th degree living in the system. Throughout his martial arts journey has fought amongst the elite and gained the utmost respect.
For some people do not know that Brazilian Ju-Jitsu is a combination of Judo and Ju-jitsu. The style is well known for its submission holds and breaks which are the bread and butter in the MMA world. He formed this style based on his inability for maximum leverage from Judo. Instead, he experimented with a system where smaller people would defend themselves against larger opponents (talking about making the system fit you). The Gracie Family are well respected throughout the world with Brazilian Ju-jitsu quickly spreading everywhere. He truly built a legacy which benefited business, careers and organizations; therefore, I salute to him.
