Brazilian Jiu-jitsu in the Real World


So here is a factual story about a woman using Jiu-jitsu to save her life. Even though there are a lot of Self-defense trainers who still try to convince people that Jiu-jitsu is nothing but a sport and has no value in the street.

I would like to ask these experts what alternative would they have suggested that would reliably work in this situation – i.e. a woman in a foreign country without backup, and unable to carry any kind of weapon, trapped in an enclosed environment against a bigger, stronger attacker? Because her solution worked pretty damned good.
