TYLER — We've told you about the 'no holds barred' sport that is mixed martial arts.
Wile it's catching lots of attention on tv, east texans are also giving it a try — including me!
"I respect fighting someone bigger than me," retired pro-fighter Relson Gracie insists on teaching street effective techniques in his JuJitsu classes.

Check out the video to see a beginner's try at the JuJitsu Triangle, Wrestling Sprawl and Judo Throw.
NOTE: We want to thank the Lone Star MMA Gym in Tyler for their help.
