Podcast episode 34: Pentjak Silat and Brazilian Jiu Jitsu for Self-Defense

Last June,  I did a special Q&A month on Patreon. I didn’t get to all the questions, so I am working my way through them in various places, including in this podcast. Carlos asked me about the effectiveness of Pentjak Silat and Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu for self-defense. In this episode, I try to give a nuanced opinion on both these arts.
