[so-called "anti-grappling"] Why are people so gullible?
Why are people so gullible, in your opinion? Many, many practitioners believe it's actually easy to defeat a grappler using eye pokes, fish hooking, small joint manipulation, biting etc.
They fail to understand that such "dirty" techniques are only useful if you know how to get into a strategically sound position. Otherwise, the grappler will beat the crap out of you no matter how "dirty" you fight.
Why do they fail to understand that? Because they don't try out their "defences" for real against grapplers.
But then again: why do people believe in bullsh+it when we are living in the "age of science"? Is it so difficult to "get empiricist"? :XXhesitan
