The taekwondo black belt came in to see if Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is good enough for his wife to learn. He stated that he wanted to fight a Gracie to find out whether or not the art was any good.
Rener stepped up to the plate and helped the taekwondo practitioner realize why. He helped him realize how being in a lot of Jiu-Jitsu fight while training BJJ (Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu) can drastically improve your chances of winning against anyone training in striking martial arts schools.
As we all know Rener is the grandson of legendary Helio Gracie and he was thought directly from Helio for years. Helio Gracie Jiu-Jitsu is also based on strikes, strikes defense and getting the chance to apply Gracie Jiu-Jitsu techniques on any kind of martial artist training in other martial art or even grappling martial art.
Helio Gracie Jiu-jitsu could also be described as Gracie MMA as his original point of self-defense includes a lot of grappling and striking techniques as we could see in his Gracie Challenge fight videos. So it’s not a coincidence that someone like Rener Gracie who was taught by Helio Gracie is pretty much able to defend against anyone training in other martial arts schools and arts.
