‘Car Jitsu’, a niche style of submission wrestling that takes place within a midsize sedan, is making its way to the US.
‘Car Jitsu’ was created in Russia by Vik Mikheev, whose YouTube channel has dozens of videos of matches with nearly 2 million total views. Mikheev is an MMA fighter, a black belt in judo and BJJ, and holds a Ph.D. in Math. He envisions ‘Car Jitsu’ as a way to develop jiu-jitsu for smaller spaces.
“In 2020, I came up with the idea of doing competitive grappling in vehicles.” Mikheev notes, “Since October of 2020, I and my friends run small tournaments of Car Jitsu to study the aspects of jiu-jitsu application in such a confined space.“
