Amateurs Vs. Professionals!


…..I cannot count or even know how many times I have seen this replayed over and over.  Where a serious martial practitioner and I mean really serious is challenged by an amateur or self taught person.  In general it plays out like the video below though yes an amateur does win every now and then.  When I say above, serious martial practitioner that is what I mean in that their are lots of people who practice the martial sciences but it may be more of a hobby than a serious calling.  However those serious practitioner’s well they really put every thing into it.  Some times to the point where their body is aching for a day off.  Anyways I came across this video of some amateur’s taking on a serious Brazilian Jiujitsu practitioner.  You can see the results!  Enjoy the beautiful movement and understand the serious training it took to get there.  Also if you find yourself in this position never underestimate your opponent!

The video is correct in that these guy’s were good sports.

I have seen more than my share where the guy’s were not good sports.

See You On The Mats!

    That was fantastic! Has this been posted over at martial talk… I wish the self taught “swordsman” could have a lesson like this. Too bad it is illegal. 😉
