As per usual you get the normal hyperbole back from them about being "too deadly" or "try that crap in the streets" whenever any form of pressure testing (i.e. competitive fighting) is mentioned, but they cannot se beyond their own ego and sadly limited system.
For the record - and for all SS nutriders - I have been on "the streets" for many years in a professional capacity and in personal encounters. Only on a handful of occasions have I been unable to control an individual without striking.
Also, the Gracies did not say that their style was not effective against multiple opponents. What they said was they doubt that ANY style is good against multiple opponents and that any art that claims otherwise - SS for example - is to be treated with suspicion until they can produce evidence to the contrary....and anecdotes do not count as emprical evidence
