Ground Strike Defense: The Comic
I subscribe to grapplearts and get lots of interesting stuff from Stephan Kesting, who is awesome by the way.
The following was his comic full of eye-bleeding comic sans font about how not to get grounded and pounded like Frank Mir (READ: a bitch).
By the way, do you zhoo-zhitsu guys get training in this often if it wasnt a sub-grap class geared for MMA ?
I got zip while doing Judo (**** yea'r)
My instructor talks about how to deal with strikes in certain positions but we don't drill it as we're not an MMA-oriented school. That was a pretty sweet comic, though, especially the "it's clobberin' time!" bit.

Well of course not, because you're going to be the guy doing the punching because you will have thrown them on their head.

Wow, very good stuff. Gigantic nighty-night elbow rules.
