Girl sucker punches opponent in Jiu-Jitsu match

Wednesday, March 08, 2017

Training in a martial arts discipline such as Karate, Judo or Brazilian Jiu Jitsu for example is a great way to instill discipline, hard work as well as respect and good sportsmanship on and off of the mats. But it looks like one girl didn’t get that message.

In Moscow, Russia at a BJJ competition called ‘BJJ Party’, two girls in the white belt division (the brown belt is only there to help the referee tell them apart) engaged in a grappling match which saw the girl in the white belt secure mount transition into an arm bar to get the tap.

But after the match things got messy as the girl in the brown belt who was clearly frustrated that she lost made a passing comment to her opponent. From here the girl in the white belt displayed some very poor sportsmanship as she approached the other girl and landed two sucker punches before people intervened and separated the two girls.

According to a post on the BJJ Party Facebook page the girl who launched the attack was disqualified for her actions.

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. However it can be used in some self-defense situations and does serve its purpose. Sparring (commonly referred to as rolling) and live drilling play a major role in training, and a premium is placed on performance, especially in competition, in relation to progress and ascension through its ranking system.
