Defending Stupid Big Guy Attacks (and the Honor of Jiu-Jitsu)
It’s amazing what some big guys will do when they get frustrated. In fact, sometimes they’ll try stuff so stupid that it’ll take you completely by surprise!
Now, many BJJ instructors never bother to teach you what to do against these ‘stupid attacks.’
Maybe after years and years of training the answer is so obvious to them that they believe that it must be obvious to everyone else too.
But this is not the case…
It’s impossible to expect the unexpected. And if you’ve never seen a specific attack before – even if it’s stupid – then you can’t be faulted for not knowing what to do.
In the segment from the newly released How to Defeat the Bigger, Stronger Opponent, Series 2, Brandon Mullins shares some of his favorite answers to some of his least favorite situations. This is important stuff – nobody wants to tap out to techniques that shouldn’t work.
After you watch this 6 1/2 minute video you’ll know EXACTLY what to expect, how to protect yourself, and how to defend the honor of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu…
That video clip came from the Defence and Escape Gameplan volume in the How to Defeat the Bigger, Stronger Opponent Series 2, with Brandon Mullins.
This is an absolutely incredible resource for grapplers who sometimes have to deal with being manhandled and overpowered on the mats. It’s available as both as a series of apps for your phone or tablet, or as a professionally replicated 5 DVD set.
