Having done Jiu Jitsu for some time now, I can say without a shred of doubt that my quality of life has drastically improved from doing it. I’ve gained confidence, my patience has improved, and my focus and discipline has benefitted greatly as well. And I can be confident that if some dumbass tries to start a fight, I will have the arsenal of weapons to subdue him, choke him out or make him tap out. I recommend Jiu Jitsu to anyone who no longer wants to feel the fear and powerlessness of not knowing what to do in situations like these.
This post goes out to all the folks out there who know a good fight scene when they see one. I’m going to start the show off with a few of my personal favorite fight scenes and if you want to contribute, post the Youtube link in the comment section below and it will show up for everyone to enjoy.
Way Of The Dragon
If you missed Saturday night’s UFC fight, I got you covered. Here’s the video of Frank Mir breaking Nogueira’s arm with a Kimura
You gotta put the blame on Nogueira and his ego for not tapping out earlier. Anyone in Frank Mir’s position would do the same.
If You Grew Up In The 90’s, Jean-Claude Van Damme’s Fight Scenes Were Definitely A Fixture In Your Upbringing
If you were a product of the late 80’s and 90’s, early morning cartoons, Nintendo and fcuking Jean-Claude Van Damme was definitely a consistent fixture in your upbringing. From Bloodsport to Lionheart to Kickboxer, there was a period of about 5 years where he could do no wrong, and we ate up each and every one of his movies. We knew each kick, each punch and each carefully place leg splits like the back of our hands. Here are 5 fight scenes that we have all come to know and love Van Damme for.
Let’s say you’re out with your buddies (or maybe a lovely young lady) having a good time, when all of a sudden some jackass shoves you. You didn’t do anything to instigate the guy, but it doesn’t matter.
There is a special breed of males, that when inebriated, start fights with random people. This breed, when found in their wild habitat, are often accompanied by their similarly boneheaded buddies.
Or perhaps you and your posse end up in a rumble with the Socs because one of your buddies killed a Soc while trying to save Ponyboy from being drowned by a douche bag Soc. Man, I hate them Socs. Stay golden Ponyboy.
What can you do to prepare for a street brawl and protect yourself in this type of situation? Here are 8 simple steps you can follow to avoid ending up in the emergency room after a street fight.
1. Wake up! When someone threatens you, snap to attention. Be aware of your environment. Look for objects that you can use for weapons. Searching out a place to escape to is especially important if you’re outnumbered.
2. Try to defuse the situation. Try to talk with the guy and calm him down. If you did something unknowingly that offended him (like looking at him funny), then apologize. Don’t let your ego get in the way of apologizing for something you didn’t do. Your first goal should be to avoid fighting. Maintain confident body language. Don’t show the guy you’re afraid.
3. Walk away. If talking to the knucklehead doesn’t work, start to leave the scene. But maintain alertness and walk away backwards, still facing your opponent. If he’s a no-good, yellow-belly rat, he’ll attack you from behind.

Here’s the full Strikeforce match between Fedor and Dan Henderson that took place this past Saturday. I think an appropriate title for the match would be Fedor: The End
Holy Smokes! Check Out This Dude Getting Pummeled By 4 People Make An Awesome Comeback On The Vegas Streets
Here’s a pretty crazy video of a fight caught on a Vegas street, which starts off with some dude running away, getting caught and then being pummeled by 4 people. He makes an awesome come back, when his friend comes in and saves him. This video has it all folks, punches, kicks, cheap shots and more.
Here’s a video of Cheick Congo almost getting knocked out twice, getting wailed on and coming back to deliver a devastating uppercut which put the night cap on Pat Berry’s lights. Props to Cheick Congo’s resiliency for taking a flurry of hard hitting punches that would put 99.9% of people down and under.
