This guy is a double danger: he knows BJJ and wields a knife!
What it takes to arrest a guy who knows Brazilian jiu-jitsu? And what if he has a knife on him? Gracie Academy instructor Brian “T-City” Ortega and two unknown police officers know the answer. The cops roll with Ortega for several minutes and though they disarmed him pretty soon, it took them quite a time to put handcuffs on the ‘suspect’. We have to admit, that Mr. Ortega is a great actor. His best role, of course, was Bubba-the-Dummy in Rener Gracie’s hilarious prank but he is also very convincing as an armed criminal.
The whole fight looks quite funny but it’s a part of the Gracie Survival Tactics (GST) program which was developed to teach military and law enforcement specialists how to defend and counter physical assaults. The video actually shows the last day of training when two officers were chosen randomly to take part in an Arrest Simulation Drill. And though the cops had to sweat a bit, they finally arrested Ortega without a single strike or usage of such equipment as batons. In fact, Brian Ortega didn’t even have the chance to use his knife!
