Real Self Defence


Make sure and check out my latest video: Jiu-jitsu against knives and guns when your opponent is on the video was inspired when some guy on YouTube on this video. He said “the ground is the last place you want to be in a street fight.” He then went on to say an attacker can pull out a gun or knife. I was dumbfounded when he said this, because he also claimed to have trained for many years in jiu-jitsu even though he also claimed he was a JKD instructor. He never provide any credentials.

My 5 favorite and proven jiu-jitsu techniques that anyone can use in a street situation for self defense and protection. I am Mark Hopkins, a 3rd degree black belt under Carlos Valente and a masters level competitor and multi-time medalist in Brazilian Jiu-jitsu competition. are always welcome, always question coming from those who do not provide you with valid credentials as a martial artist or self defense “expert”. Fakes or self-proclaimed experts without real names or real credentials love to validate themselves by making that are not proven.

Brazilian Jiu jitsu is the perfect martial art for self defense when you really don’t want to hurt somebody or if you don’t want to show visible damage. Of course, you can hurt somebody with jiu jitsu if you really wanted to, but these techniques usually will not show signs of visible damage, like a bloody lip or nose from a punch would. Many schools are against fighting of any kind, even if you or your child is fighting back to defend themselves against bullies and punks. Give yourself and your child the gift of Self Defense.
