Street Jiu Jitsu Vs. Sport Jiu Jitsu

I came across a discussion of street vs. sport BJJ, with Ryon and Rener Gracie. Take a little time to listen as they discuss the misconception people have about sport vs. reality. This can be applied to other martial arts in that what would be the wrong thing to do in sport may be the right thing to do in reality. Look at this example: You are boxing and get hit with a hard shot that hurts. You clinch and hold your opponent and the ref, says "Break". By breaking the fighters, the chances of getting knocked out increases. In a street fight, if you get hit and hurt, you will hold to protect yourself so that you don't get hit again.
