BJJ vs Kick Boxing video
Info about "BJJ vs Kick Boxing video"
Today’s kickboxing was heavily influenced by the centuries-old art of Thai boxing. Thai boxers often use their shins and knees to deliver harsh kicks. Kickboxing became popular in the United States in the 1970s. During that time, karate tournament fighters looked for a new, less restrictive way to battle each other in the ring. Kickboxing combines the punches from boxing with the kicks from karate, taekwondo and Thai boxing.
Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu has become famous for its formidable ground-fighting techniques. An example of a popular jujitsu technique is the arm bar. You can perform this technique by lying on the floor with your opponent’s arm clinched between your legs. Push up with your hips to apply pressure to the back of his elbow joint. If you practice jujitsu, you will not spend a lot of time developing an arsenal of kicks and punches.
If you are a skilled BJJ fighter, then you can be more effective than a kickboxer in a grappling or ground fight. You can quickly put a kickboxer in a debilitating chokehold, arm lock or leg lock that can end a confrontation. A kickboxer can be more effective in a long-range fight. A strong kick or punch can abruptly knockout a BJJ fighter before he has the chance to use any of his takedowns or locks. A skilled kickboxer can also deliver knee and elbow strikes as a BJJ fighter moves closer. Typically, the best fighters from any style are those who know how to adapt to different opponents and different ranges of combat.
