    Still.

    Look I find for myself personally that a coming up on a person on the ground tends to have their back exposed if they are on top and are allready pinned if they are on the bottom and are easier to grab than somone who is hopping around on their feet.

    I feel less threatened going phisical with a fight on the ground than I do with one that is still stand up. Espesially if the person I am trying to grab is able to move around and strike. If they are clinched up it is very similar to the ground.
    Would you say you are a beter grappler than striker?

    I thought I had asked a legitimate question with no funny attached.

    Anyway I would receive a serious scowling from my coach if I attempted to shoot without supporting the movement with striking If I was attacking. (Defend is different)

    The only way to achieve striking into a takedown is to have decent striking or otherwise I am just getting bashed hoping that my takedown skills are better than my opponants.

    this happened with a boxer mate of mine who did his first MMA a while back and was quite simply forcing the other guy.(Superior grappler) into spazzy grapples by hurting him with punches.

    Personally I do not want to compromise. I want to dominate in both diciplines of striking and grappling so that I do not need to make sacrifices with my fighting.

    Better striker. Although still not very good. But this is more breaking up fights than going third in and putting the slipper in.

    I study striking for much the same reason that Bruse Lee (according to MTripp) studied grappling: to more effectively counter it.

    And there's this chessboxing bussiness I got myself into.

    would you be more vulnerable legaly if you relied on striking whilst bouncing. Grappling seems far less violent to the lay observer than punching someones lights out

    Yes.

    On the job I almost never hit people. But I also don't want to be the guy who is cuddling someone while my workmates are getting knocked out either. Espesially if I am trying to hold a door or drive a group back.

    I generally advise against striking in a street fight. It makes you more vulnerable to multiple opponents.

    Grappling is boring. I train striking so that I'm not [only] a boring gay roling-around-on-the-ground guy.

    What? Am I missing the troll/humor here? Not the first time, I'm afraid.

    I was surprised at how fast I as an old standup guy was able to learn sprawl - few hours training and take down defense success went way up sparring. That and the deadly kick to the shin as they shoot. Takes good timing, but that's an expected level of skill for old standup guys.
