Master Ken explains 3 reasons why the Gracie BJJ stance is complete bulls**t

Friday, September 08, 2017

Although the martial art of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is best known for its intricate ground fighting, you may have forgotten that there is also an array of stand up techniques. The best usage of these techniques was displayed in the early UFC tournaments by the legendary Royce Gracie, who used an array of stomping kicks and empty palm strikes to dazzle his opponents before getting them to the mat.

But one martial artist isn’t having it and see’s many holes in this method of stand-up.

In the following video, martial arts legend Master Ken demonstrates why the Gracie BJJ fighting stance is total bullsh*t. Throughout the lesson Master Ken will demonstrate the superiority of his style Ameri-Do-Te and everything BJJ gets wrong and effectively busting the myth of the grappling art.

Check out the full video below.

Please note that Master Ken is a highly trained professional in the art of Ameri-Do-Te so please do not try any of his moves at home.

Ever studied Kung Fu? Taekwondo? Krav Maga? They’re all BULLSH*T.

Only Ameri-Do-Te will give you the skill to survive a real life street encounter. Don’t waste time with cardio kickboxing or old fashioned karate. Forget using traditional weapons. In Ameri-Do-Te…YOU are the weapon. (To be clear: We do also have weapons training. But once you become a weapon you are even more dangerous. Because you’re a weapon holding a weapon. Imagine if you saw a knife holding a gun. Would you try to rob it? Of course not. And not because knives don’t have pockets to carry money. But because as a criminal in that situation you are twice as likely to be injured or killed. Understand? No? Then you need Ameri-Do-Te!) [Source: Enter the Dojo Show]
