We know, you’ve been spending months–if not years–crying out to the universe “Why isn’t there a sport that combines my love of cars with martial arts!?”

Lucky for you, your pleas have been answered: Enter CarJitsu.

If I saw something like that in a car:  "Uh, hey fellas...there's a no-tell motel just around the corner for that."

Ummmm, right...

 

New material might be getting a bit thin nowadays.  I think they are reaching.  Reaching for anything.

This is an interesting experiment, but obviously not really a mass appeal sport. One of the main issues with grappling in a car, is the almost total lack of space to create leverage for submissions. Also interesting to see the seat belt allowed as a means to submission. In jiu jitsu, the uniform is used to submit, but using the belt is against the rules.

maybe we should have a movie car fights thread to go with the chase one?

There seems to be a sport for everyone nowadays. Maybe I should find one. Nah, I'll stick with captaining the neighborhood wiffleball/kickball team. I can handle that.

But why a Scion coupe??? This would have been way more interesting in any of the dozens of full size SUVs available. Give those boys room to work

In reply to calteg :

I think a subcompact would make things much more interesting. Minivans, though, would flood every millennial's brain with instant memories, though.
