We here at the Jiu-Jitsu Times have spoken a lot about how police officers can benefit from Brazilian jiu-jitsu.
But can soldiers benefit as well?
These soldiers certainly thought they could, and they were willing to endure a beating at the hands of Brazilian jiu-jitsu black belt Ze Cobra in order to learn the Gracie soft art.
In this video, Ze absolutely manhandles one soldier after another. Keep in mind that the men he’s fighting are trained killers — people whose job it is to go into the most dangerous parts of the world and capture or execute the most dangerous threats to our nation. But when they’re on the mats with Cobra, they’re nothing more than playthings.
Imagine what the military could do with their training and Cobra’s grappling skills.
