The John Wick franchise has inspired a new generation of people who enjoy watching intense incidents on the street.
This next video got jiu-jitsu fans excited because it even teased that a t-shirt was used as a weapon.
Although that wasn’t the case, it was an interesting demonstration of skill and control. In the viral clip, a grappler performed a submission move during a recent incident, reminiscent of a technique seen in the popular movie franchise, John Wick.
Contrary to initial claims, the grappler didn’t use his opponent’s shirt for the submission. Instead, he used a more traditional technique by trapping the neck with his forearm and head, maintaining control over the shirtless individual.
The man showed exceptional composure and restraint. He effectively defended himself while minimizing harm to his opponent and avoiding actions that could lead to legal consequences.
Rumors suggest that the man in question is Trevor Cooper, an experienced practitioner of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and Mixed Martial Arts. His skills were evident as he quickly neutralized the situation.
This video serves as compelling evidence that combat sports not only have practical applications in the ring but also provide valuable self-defense training.
During the encounter, Cooper used a palm-to-palm grip. This technique is colloquially known as the FDH, or “Forget Da Hooks.”
In a real-life scenario where someone’s back is compromised, it becomes crucial to question whether the attacker will release their hold once the victim manages to escape. In such dire situations, individuals may resort to desperate measures like eye-gouging in an attempt to break free. The reality is that one’s life may be at stake, and the attacker could choose to cause fatal harm.
It’s important to understand that losing consciousness in a hold occurs due to the interruption of blood flow to the brain, rather than a lack of oxygen. The brain relies on a constant supply of oxygenated blood, and even a few seconds without circulation can have severe consequences.
Furthermore, skilled grapplers are trained to anticipate and counter attempts by their opponents to escape a submission. This preparedness includes accounting for the opponent’s efforts to reach back and disrupt the hold.
