An attempted robber in Brazil made one of the biggest mistakes imaginable when he decided to try and hold up a receptionist at a BJJ gym, only to run straight into students warming up downstairs. The video was caught by CCTV cameras at a local gym and shows a man wearing a bike helmet walk into the property and immediately the receptionist holds up his hands and does what the man asks. As the pair walk downstairs, a second CCTV camera shows a group of five grapplers doing jumping jacks to warm up for a lesson.
It appears as though there was two white belts, two black belts, and a blue belt who all decided to chase the man the moment they laid eyes on him. It’s clear that the man immediately realized he’d made a terrible decision as he wasted no time in turning around and running back up the stairs to try and make his escape. Unfortunately for the attempted robber, there was another two students walking into the BJJ gym that appeared to be a brown belt and another white belt and he was quickly taken down and restrained by all seven men.
The video footage was uploaded to the official YouTube Channel of JiuJitsuLevelHardTV and this is by no means the first time that a criminal has made an incredibly poor choice of victim. Just recently, another attempted robbery took place at a small shop that was being manned by a store clerk who had a decent amount of BJJ training and was able to subdue his attacker immediately. Of course, there’s also the time that Josh Henges, US National Team Judoka, managed to disarm and restrain an armed attacker and then wait for police to arrive and make an arrest.
