BJJ… for the Street

Here’s a couple of photos of my training partner Jerry and I testing for our first stripes on our Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Blue Belts. These shots are from Spring 2010.

You’ll notice we’re wearing MMA gloves. We train under Burton Richardson, and this is part of his BJJ for Street Self-Defense curriculum. Unlike more traditional Jiu-Jitsu, striking isn’t just encouraged, it’s mandatory!
