It’s all fun and games, until you are filming a video for Youtube and your training partner nearly dies. His eyeballs rolling back tho…
Think back to all the times you’ve seen McDojo demonstrations go wrong. When that chubby Taekwondo instructor missed the board and hits the student, or those notorious Youtube videos of fake Karate black belts doing terribly choreographed Kata moves.
One thing those videos all have in common is that the practitioners were in fact phoney, but that’s not the subject of today’s article. It’s actually the complete opposite, this topic features a martial arts instructor with legitimate skills, but things can still go very wrong.
So to the video, a Brazilian Jiu Jitsu black belt and gym owner attempts to demonstrate on his own brother a gi-choke. The choke is not designed to throttle, but to restrict blood flow to the brain, thus rendering the subject out cold.
Of course he never meant for the choke to work fully in this demo, which is quite graphic:
Brutal right? But what about unintentional fails by untrained martial artists? These are quite often far more funny and spectacular.
