This is post is brought to you by Anderson's Martial Arts Academy

In keeping with our fight theme of late... Found this over at our friends at Downtowny...in the lobby at 63 Wall Street.



Here's the description of the video from YouTube:

Some crazy drunk guy attacked me on Wall Street late at night. He threw a punch at me so I punched him down to the ground in self defense. He followed me back to my building and attacked me again inside, which is caught on tape. I used BJJ to neutralize him until the police came. There are about 6 seconds missing due to the apartment building's crappy copying where I ground and pounded him. Very bloody, but you can't see it from the video. Big shout out to Anderson's Martial Arts Academy in NYC where I train! Compared to my training partners, this guy was easy pickins'. FYI, I'm 5'6'' 180 lbs and this guy was like 6 foot and 210 lbs. In addition to being an MMA enthusiast, I'm also an attorney. Bad luck for him.

Looks more like they're making love than fighting.

Keep the fight clips coming, Grieve. Maybe you can post some good bum fight clips, too?

Thanks, Travis. Been some time since I've seen a good bum fight!

He used BJ to neutralize the drunk guy? ...... oh, BJJ.

I love the people walking by to check in with the doorman, and then he files some paperwork! Brilliant!

This is Stephen from the video (the guy in red). I'll forgive the humping jokes because the first time I saw 2 guys grappling I found it kind of disturbing too. But training BJJ at Anderson's was an incredible amount of help in this fight. Once I turned the guy over, he was pretty much at my mercy. I could have finished it off with a choke or armbar at pretty much any point after that, but refrained for legal reasons. I ended up half blacking him out with a rear naked choke eventually because he wouldn't calm down.
