Slap in the face? Connect to defend it

Self-defense, the basis and origin of Jiu-Jitsu, exists to protect people from a wide variety of aggressions -- from a kick by a professional to a simple slap thrown in a moment of tension. 
 
In this part of Rickson Gracie’s special class about slap defense, note how the master depends on his connection with the aggressor to maintain his balance, and only then does he choose how to put an end to the situation. All without going home with that unpleasant heat in his cheek that can have so many consequences. 
 
Watch and enjoy.
