Moments of WTF: Wing Tsun / BJJ Defense Solved? Doubtful

wtf moments

I would like to say that the techniques in this video look even remotely close to something that would work against a wrestling shot or jiu jitsu takedown, but I can't.

Monday Morning Quarterbacking With Dr. Rhadi Ferguson – January 20th

Jessica Aguilar-interview

Jack Bratcher: It seems like wrestling is generally perceived as the best fit for the sport as a foundation. Dr. Rhadi Ferguson: Yes it does seem that way but it’s a false read that people are getting. What you see in MMA is called a convenient sample.

There are more practitioners of martial arts in the world than there are wrestling practitioners. And if you don’t think so, just look at the adult population. Read More »
