Crappy BJJ vs. Crappy Boxing Video...

Tough kids, and nobody jumped in. Click here to watch. The Brazilian Jiu Jitsu guy just sort of wades through Boxer's punches and takes him down, over and over.

Once you get a guy down, if you're DECENT at Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, the competitive phase of the fight SHOULD be over. BJJ practitioners figure the ground is the ocean, they are sharks, and non-BJJ guys don't even know how to swim.

Ideally the BJJ guy would establish a strong base and the other guy, at best, would avoid getting knocked out or put to sleep for a while. He should NEVER have been able to get the fight standing again.

But the Boxer is tough and explosive enough to take advantage of the GAPING holes in the BJJ guy's game, and get up- over and over and over.

So really this is a fight between one kid who has a strategy, a game plan, and one guy who both literally and figuratively winging it. Still fun to watch.
