This is the dumbest thing I’ve seen from anti-gun activists in a long time.


Every part of this argument is stupid.

Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, or any other martial arts, doesn’t automatically teach humility and respect.  That is a function of the instructor.

The idea that teaching all kids a martial art would eliminate bullying is nonsensical.  There is no evidence for it. I guarantee that at least some fraction of kids will use their training to be better bullies.

And what about the kids that don’t want to dedicate years to training?  I personally don’t like getting hurt for fun.

And to say that using guns is cowardly because it requires no training and dedication is completely wrong and stupid.  Anyone familiar with firearms would know how much training is required to be effective with a gun for self defense.

This whole thread smacks of a Progressive affluent suburban mom who just listened to a BJJ class sales pitch at the YMCA and decided to make it national policy.

This is stupid.

  1. Guns are fundamentally standoff weapons; they are useful (arguably most useful) from beyond arm’s reach. BJJ isn’t going to change that simple fact.

  2. As a lifelong martial arts practitioner, including Chinese Kenpo and American Karate, I most strongly adhere to the focus of Ching Ching Pao. I have known a few incredibly arrogant assholes who are quite skilled, so the humility thing is not to be assumed.

  3. 1) Yeah, jiu jitsu won’t help when you’re elderly, or have a degenerative disease, or heart condition.
    2) Must be a Democrat thing to be so desperate to involve their kids in BJs. (Sorry, low-hanging fruit.)

  4. Being a lifelong student of both disciplines, reading this………made me feel all warm and fuzzy inside, and I began to sing, “Everybody was kung fu fighting, those cats were fast as lightning, in fact, it was a little bit frightening, but they fought with expert timing.”

  5. USA- Unbelievable Stupid Americans…. I was told once by my british uncle- its a weak man who carries a firearm… I told him its a prepared man who carries a firearm. This is the result of brainwashing done over the last 50 years to demonize firearms. And in modern day “schools” those who fight back (self defense) get in more trouble than the bully. Training good little liberals to be soft on crime..

Only one rule: Don't be a dick.
