Armed thief tries to rob Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu school – doesn’t go as planned

Sunday, October 08, 2017

It’s become pretty obvious that a lot of criminals just don’t learn from their colleague’s mistakes. Following up on a story where a robber tried to rob an MMA gym in Burbank, California, another would-be criminal decided to follow in their footsteps and attempt to rob a Gracie Barra BJJ gym in Brazil.

In the following security footage, the criminal walks up to the counter and confronts the receptionist only then to jump the gate to presumably rob the gym while the lady tries to stop him in his tracks.

From here they go out of view of the camera but screams can be heard and then the criminal promptly runs out of the gym while being chased down by the instructor and some students. It is unknown what happened outside the gym whether he got away or was humbly submitted, but it’s safe to say this crook may rethink his targets in the future.

How would you react in a situation like this? Check out the security footage below.

Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is a martial art, combat sport system that focuses on grappling and especially ground fighting. BJJ promotes the concept that a smaller, weaker person can successfully defend against a bigger, stronger, heavier assailant by using proper technique, leverage, and most notably, taking the fight to the ground, and then applying joint-locks and chokeholds to defeat the opponent. BJJ training can be used for sport grappling tournaments and mixed martial arts competition. It can be used in some self-defense situations and does serve its purpose. Sparring (commonly referred to as rolling) and live drilling plays a major role in training. [Source: Wiki]
