Security guard uses Jiu-Jitsu skills to defend himself against attacker

Wednesday, February 15, 2017

Of all the martial arts out there that are going to be applicable in self-defense situations, it is actually Brazilian jiu-jitsu (BJJ) that is probably the most effective above all others. Sorry but it is not karate or kung fu or other traditional martial arts.

What makes BJJ different is you are constantly practicing your skills against fully resisting opponents during training as well as using technique and leverage instead of just brute force.

In the following video we see a security guard, who is also a BJJ practitioner, successfully able to use his jiu-jitsu skills to defend himself and apprehend a drunken attacker.

The BJJ guy’s name is Fatih Aydogan and he trains out of Checkmat Wimbledon in London in the UK and he had this to say about the incident:

“I was on my duty drunk man came to me and try to punch me
But he couldn’t 😊bjj works
I would like to thanks a lot my bjj coach Carl Fisher and checkmat family.”

In the video we see the security guard working the door when this drunk guy approaches and the two begin to have words when suddenly the drunkard attacks with a couple punches before walking away briefly.

The security guard intelligently radios for backup while he can before the drunk guy comes back for round two. The security guard effectively changes levels for a double leg take down then slams the drunk guy to the ground and quickly goes to the mount position from there.

Now a lot of guys in his position would look to choke the guy out and rightly so after being attacked like that. But instead this guy showed a lot of restraint and simply used the power of position to hold the guy down until help arrived using effective BJJ technique.
