Street fights are to be avoided where possible. However, we are not always lucky enough to avoid them. Should you find yourself in a street fight and the only martial arts you know is Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ), then it just might be your lucky day.
So long as you are ready to wrestle your opponent to the ground, BJJ training is a great tool in your arsenal should you be in a street fight. BJJ techniques can help you avoid punches all together as you go in for a takedown or clinch. One of the advantages of this kind of technique is of course the element of surprise. You can be creative and unorthodox in a street fight using BJJ techniques.
