ITT we complain about the fluster cuck that is grappling terminology
This thread serves no higher purpose than to allow Yrkoon9 and omega somewhere to complain about grappling terminology.
Judo, BJJ, catch, yoga and others all war for the copyrights to desribing how two men hold each other.
Personally, I go by what sounds coolest.
Here are just a few of cluster fucks I can think of:
guard = scissorsI have yet to see anything beat...
mount = saddle
side mount = side control = across-side
omoplata = shoulder coil = shoulder lock
rear naked choke = mata leao = sleeper hold
udi garami = kimura = key lock = chicken wing = hammer lock = americana = double wrist lockI hardly even attempted finding out the Japanese terms, since I'm lazy.
The most pressing question from all of this is why does catch use such dumb names?
