Video: Eddie Bravo Really Likes to Punk His New Students

(Video courtesy of YouTube/TwisterEddie)

If you’ve ever met, or know anyone who knows Eddie Bravo, you know that he’s big on practical jokes.

My instructor and a fellow student from our gym were in L.A. recently and while they were out eating lunch with Eddie, a girl came up to let the 10th Planet founder know how much of a fan she was. Eddie took her number and proceeded to make out with her at the table. The problem was, both of the other guys knew that Eddie recently got engaged and felt kind of uncomfortable with the situation. It turned out that the “random fan” was actually Eddie’s fiancee and she was in on the joke.

Bravo has been punking his students with gags like these for years.

In the video above, he had a longtime student named Rhasaan Orange, who happens to be an actor, to pose as a traditional karate practitioner who refused to leave the gym while Eddie taught his classes. Taking a page from the Gracie playbook, karate guy would challenge the jiu-jitsu professor and inevitably lose. As an extra bonus, Bravo would hold the choke a bit long and freak out his students who would rush to Rhasaan’s aid. Hilarity ensues when the flabbergasted onlookers actually believe that Bravo nearly killed the guy and threw him out in the street.

Bonus points to Eddie for fooling Nelson “Doc” Hamilton and Cecil Peoples. Mind you, Cecil’s not a very good judge of effective grappling, so it isn’t totally surprising.

this has happened before. where cro cop had the mailman follow him around. then he punked the mail man by pretty much the same situation except for the guy comes back to the gym with a gun and fires off blanks.

good lord cecil peoples is dumb as shit. how many times did he have to ask if he was "punked" he even explains the story wrong when it just happened 5 minutes ago.

Eddie is only big on practical jokes if they're not funny. Then he'll beat them into ground and somehow manage to make them less funny.
