    Glad that you are writing this from the comfort of your home and not a hospital bed.

    Agree, going for an arm bar when one of the combatants was still mobile was a bad move. You're right in thinking about taking out the small guy first. His chances were much better of putting the hurt on you when you were tangled up with the bigger individual.

    You had a moment of truth, learned a few things and walked away from a potentially life threatening encounter. All and all I'd say you're ahead of the game.

    Wouldn't say this reflects badly on BJJ. Just your strategy for dealing with two bad guys.

    You might want to consider rounding out your training a little bit by cross-training in some stand-up. Maybe Kyokushin or Einshin or Ashihara or something. So you can punch and kick. *shrug* Glad you lived and didn't go to jail!

    I have a feeling that some stand up striking probably would've put the fight in your favor a little more. Throw some knees and elbows and then take someone to the ground and finish them with striking.

    I can't imagine a submission working in a 2v1...that might just be me though.

    You're not supposed to submit the guy, you're supposed to snap his arm and get back up.
    It seems to me that the Sanjuriu Martial Art is not in guestion, but, rather the character of Mr. Galt.

    Our boy is in a nightclub, presumably at least 50% filled with girls. And as soon as he comes into contact with a BJJ-er he quits the club where there's ***** and goes back to another man's house to have a whisky accompanied sausage fest where they watch a film! Let me guess, was it the notebook? Did you all cry at the end?

    Let me re-tell this story as it would have happened if he hadn't had any BJJ input and he had just stuck with his mate from Judo. The inspiration for this story will be drawn from a highlight reel of my own nights out.



    Here endeth the lesson.
    Sounds irrefutable to me.
